I'd have to say it's a Performance Machine. Yep, based on those Termi pipes. That just screams performance. Oh heck, wait a minute, they aren't even here yet. OK, you're right. But still, with all that CF and the weight it lost, and the suspension mods, I bet it handles like you can't imagine. Maybe he forgot to list the suspension mods. But it probably still handles incredibly well, considering all the CF.

now now ladies go easy

Not everyone wants the bike to be able to hit mach 1 on a bumpy road and sail over the top of it, He might be quite happy pootling along on his speedy in which case the suspension is more than capable of doing its job in stock form and untouched.

I honestly believe that only needs sorting if you treat the bike how it deserves to be treated or you have come from a sorted sportsbike any other situation and the suspension will do what its meant to quite happily.

As for the rest of the mods I applaud Jwebb for doing what he wants to his bike and having the money he has earned to spend on it is fair play and his choice.

It would be nice to see some more pics when the other items arrive Jwebb, keep up the good work.

And behold, an Orange Motorcycle, and he who sat on it, his name was Deathace. Hades followed with him.
Authority over one fourth of the earth, to beat others with a triple, with speed, with looks, and the loose women of the earth was given to him.

[QUOTE=Deathace;1724150]now now ladies go easy

I have to agree with Deathace. Just because I have 2-stage nitrous and a ten foot wheelie bar (I don't) does not mean everyone should have the same. I certainly didn't mean to be mean, just poking a little good-intentioned fun. And I know there must be a great deal of satisfaction in getting a bike set up just exactly the way one wants it, and that takes as many forms as there are posters to this forum and more. The variety is what makes us what we are and are not. I don't much care how ratty my machine looks, so long as it goes, stops and corners. Others could do without the last three and the looks count for everything. That certainly doesn't make them wrong or me right. What is the British equivalent of "viva la difference?"
Oh. Never mind.
Cheers and more cheers!

How did this turn into conjecture about performance or type of use?
Sheesh - the guy just posted some pics of his aesthetic mods - no-one should be reading any more into that than was stated.

Jwebb, looks really nice. Definitely remember to come back to us and let us know how the Termis sound.
