you telling me. I'm trying to decide if the coffee machine malfunction is a curse or a blessing (it makes really awfull coffee. But is it better than none at all? Still unsure).
I'm not arguing that there is no performance benefits from slips ons, or that some aren't any better than others. But I do like to carry a "pick your battles" attitude when it comes to performance. Few of us are operating with an open budget. So decisions have to be made, and the first one is "What exactly am I looking for". If its performance you are after, then go with tires, suspension, then a full system. If on the other hand, one is after "cool points", then save your cash, and get a D&D or a hotbodies, or whatever exhaust is considered "in" right now. Use the spare cash for vynil stickers, or maybe some "how-to" riding books.
