Street Fighter Ideas

Well, I wiped out on my Bandit about a week ago.

The bike seems okay except for a bit of cosmetic damage. So... I thought I would use this as an excuse to do some customization/upgrading.

Does anyone out there have some links to cool street fighter sights that I could get ideas from?

Someone posted something pretty good within the last couple of months but I can't find it again.

Here's a link to a sight with some parts that I am considering:

Also, if anyone has used this company or any of the stuff they’re selling, I'd like to hear comments.

Thanks guys.

Hi tigertex,

Sorry about your bike being damaged
I took a look at the site you mentioned and it looks interesting.
I noticed that many parts come from Metisse. I bought some crash bungs for a CB600 Hornet from them and although I don't like most of their stuff, I must admit that these crash protectors were FIRST quality (anodized aluminium) , AND they saved my friend's bike when he wheelied it over...
You might want to check it at www.metisse.de , maybe it's cheaper to order from them directly, it's in Germany somewhere.

Good luck with your customizing!

Aris

The injuries were:

1. Ankle. Ligament sprain. Healing nicely. I can walk on it a little. Currently have small air splint and in physical therapy.

2. Shoulder. Separated clavicle bone (i think that's the correct name more or less). No surgery. Arm in immobilizer. Begin physical therapy in 2 weeks.

3. Rib. Was bruised. Seems completely normal now.

Expected recovery time. Not sure. They have me slated for 8 weeks of therapy. I don't think the ankle will take that long but I'm a little concerned about the shoulder. I don't have any experience with this type of injury.

Brian,
Sounds worse than I thought, glad you are talking
about fixing the bike up though, gotta get
back on the horse, so to speak.
When I broke my collar bone (clavicle) I was
riding the V65 in 4 weeks & back on the 9R
in 6 weeks......just to give you an idea.
I didnt say it was a good idea, just some
kind of time frame....

Not bad considering the possibilities. About that shoulder, consult your ride leader, he's well-versed in that area.

EDIT: Ah, I see he beat me to it.
