So in my aim to be more fiscally responsible in 2014, I'm prioritizing performance mods on my bike over aesthetic...so no Chrono Classic gauge for me.

Now someone talk to me, preferably in plain English, about progressive vs. straight rate springs vs. emulators.

I don't know about progressive/straight springs for the Bonnie... that you gotta consult the experts for

But emulators are a separate thing you can combine with new springs.

Dammit - I literally JUST cop a Biltwell Gringo as my daily scooter lid and then Bell drops this beauty (albeit at almost 2x the price):

That Bell sure would go well with the new R NineT.

You know, it is getting impossible to ignore the rise in a new age of cafe riders. Just this year in Boston I've noticed at least 3x more than last year. Local cafe customizers are even gathering in a Facebook group for the first time.

We were discussing above who will take up the torch of cool now that Harley represents "midlife crisis dentist" more and more and sport bike riders are often seen as lowbrow punk squids with more chicken strips than the Micky D's they had for lunch. I think the cafe crowd is only going to grow.

Look at the work guys like Roland Sands are doing. And now that BMW has invested so much in a quickly customizable cafe style bike, I think they are seeing it too.

I wonder if it would be worth it to open a cafe in Boston for the cafe crowd. Motorcycle parking out front. Helmet pegs on the wall. Maps of good rides and autographed custom bike posters on the wall.

If it weren't for the goddamn New England winter...

Nonetheless. I see opportunity here.

Man if only clubman bars weren't so damn uncomfortable...

Cafe racers and hipsters do go hand in hand though.

Because actual power will only get bugs in your mustache.

The new nineT is 15 000eurs here, without options. At that price i'd rather have almost anything else. I mean... Buy a CB750 from 75-85, and you still get like 12000eurs worth of equipment and option and whatever you want to spend on it...
