thanks for the compliments on the bike. a buddy of mine actually owned it before me and hit a deer at 60-70 he broke his wrist and had some road rash and the bike was totaled. i bought it from him and did all the work myself and painted it candy red. and as for the amount of smoke i shifted up into 3rd but definatly didnt have that tacked out. and as for my buddy hes back on another 600rr and we rip all the time.
