Cheers for the heads up Nutah, I've watched videos of buells ticking over and the front wheel looks like it's trying to break free from the rest of the bike!

Thought I should post a pic of my new baby. Sorry the picture quality isn't great but they were taken by the previous owner. Im sure the ceramic coated pipes will raise a few eyebrows but they won't be staying!

It's removable, if you look at the last pic it's been swapped for a small grab rail.

By the weekend they will be wrapped in black exhaust tape, so I won't care about them getting dirty . I have to admit it was my least favourite part of the bike followed closely by the white hugger :roll: but it's personal taste and while it's not to my liking it's easily changed and I'd like the 2.5" system at some point anyway. I was thinking on a different colour bike it may look quite good?

Thanks for the comments.
Mark
