Are they a real 32, as in 16" across?

post #3467 of 5202
That's what they were supposedly supposed to shrink to but no, they're larger than that - which is why they're too big for me.

I'll take measurements when I get home tonight.

I'm willing to sell them with or without the included Forcefield hip and knee armor btw in case you want to use your own.

One of these (1199 Panigale or 1098 Streetfighter S) will be my next bike. 

 

I have spoken

If I was going to buy a Ducati, it would be the streetfighter.

You're both wrong. :p:p:p

Nice shot.

Ever notice you're always on the wrong bike when you ride? It seems I only pass a bunch of vintage rides and I'm on the CBR. Tonight, coming home from seeing Kick-Ass 2, I rode my CB400T thru not one but two groups of 10+ more sportbike riders - one group headed for the Edens, the other headed for LSD. Oddly, the first group all had girls riding pillion.

Update on the seat.

I couldn't find a tan leather I liked so I decided to go with a darker brown.

Here's a pic in direct sunlight:

Who cares what the name of the color is...that's definitely the color you want.

Perfect BRG / whisky leather combination. White would have looked good too but a bitch to take care of.

Motorcyclist hit by lightning
Quote:
CHEHALIS, WA (KPTV) -

A man on a motorcycle heading north on Interstate 5 in Washington was struck by a bolt of lightning.

The bolt blew out the face shield of his helmet, tore up the interior padding and melted wiring in the helmet and on the motorcycle.

Washington State Patrol said it happened at 9:30 a.m. Thursday near Chehalis. The lightning hit the 59-year-old motorcycle rider's helmet.

Police said the man initially pulled off to the shoulder of the freeway in a daze, unsure of what had happened. Witnesses stopped and told him he'd just been hit by lightning.

Firefighters said, at that point, he got back on his bike and kept on riding. The man took Exit 76 into Chehalis, where he stopped at a convenience store and asked for help.

Firefighters said the drivers behind him reported seeing both his helmet and motorcycle light up when the lightning hit him. They said it was a "direct hit" from the lightning strike.

Police and firefighters said the bolt blew out the face shield of his helmet, tore up the interior padding and melted wiring in the helmet and on the motorcycle.

A photo from LewisCountySirens.com shows the motorcycle rider talking to emergency crews after the lightning strike.

The man from Tenino, WA has not been identified. He was taken to the hospital for burns to his ears and neck, according to firefighters. He was treated and released.
