whose modding addiction is worse than a crack addiction

just wanted to make sure i wasn't the only one in the boat so in love with modding my RR (even though i cant ride it atm) it'd prolly be cheaper for me to pick up a drug like meth. Anyone else in this boat?

Yup, I don't think they make a rehab program strong enough to get us off the mods-

Most of us got two addictions going on RR.net addiction and RR mod addiction

sometimes it's as easy as just getting a little paint and going to its finer pieces, but some days I just want to pull the tank off and make sure everything's good. If I had the money right now, I'd def have a full titanium exhaust project going.

Am I right to think that those who voted 'yes' to 'My Mod Addiction is Worse than Crack Addiction' must have or have had a crack addiction? Otherwise how would they know?

Having said that the same would apply to those who vote 'no'. As what would they be comparing it against otherwise?

Getting back to the spirit of the poll, I am completely addicted, to everything that gives me a buzz...

Euro White RR7 - Akrapovic Slip - Carbon panels - R&G - ASV -Zero Gravity - HEL
Renthals / Stomp grips - Tripage CA SQ - Tripage Adjustable FE - CRF250X6

The only cure for a modding addict is an empty back account.

I'm totally with ya on this one man!!!

You wanna know what though??

Excessive spending and modding isnt what scares me...
What scares me the most is I know someday there will be nothing left I can do to her....
And thats whats gunna cost the most.... Because I'm going to have to buy a new bike and start it over all again!!!

:D
