New one in the stable
« on: January 16, 2019, 04:28:23 pm »
I know a few have been asking, since I've been sellin' some C10 parts. I no longer have the Connie, however, aint plannin' on dropping out or anything.

End of October 2018 replaced the Connie with this  :)

A 2017 holdover Ninja 1000ABS, sale price was 300 bucks more than I bought my 1999 C10 for in '99 :-\  and no extra dealer fees, just plus tax and title so OTD under 10k, way under.....    :great: :great:

A C14 or similar may be in the future, just biding some time for the moment.  ;D

Kewl potatoes, a nice mix there.  Yeah, I'm considering a flash for my Ninja, the closed throttle to dialing in throttle exiting a slow corner transition is abrupt, not very smooth at all.
