What's up folks? Name is Kane and I'm hailing from the Nation's Race Capitol...Indy!

Bike is my second 900RR...black/purple/yellow color scheme (the old Smokin' Joe). So far it has a full Two Brothers race exhaust, Barnett clutch, DID 530VM Gold X-ring chain, vortex sprockets running a 16/45 ratio. I just completed some polishing including the rear sets, passenger pegs, swingarm, levers and I'm about to do the triple clamp. I run Metzler MEZ3's in the front and MEZ4's in the rear.

Actually, the 900RR is the only bike that I have owned...I actually learned on my 93, but it was stolen and stripped (the frame was found in some weeds or something across town...LOL!)

Although I'm a big guy (6'2", 250 lbs...muscular) I don't seem to have much problem fitting my big ass on the bike. The fastest I have had it to was 140 and my wheelies suck (I guess practice makes perfect!) I HOWEVER can do a MEAN rolling burnout by standing on the pegs, grabbing the front brake, popping the clutch and smoking that sucker on down the street.

But mostly, I like to cruise around. The bike looks good and it does get looks!

By the way, that Avatar pic is of me with my old Mustang...I use that on Stangnet.com. Soon as I get a digital camera, I'll update that.

Welcome, I disagree with VYPIR on the mustang (sorry). Prefer TAs. And I can't wheelie either. I don't even try burnouts (I baby my bike and it might break if I'm not careful!). Mostly I sit on my bike in the parking lot with my matching gear . Enjoy the stay man.
