Let me know how that throttle tamer works out. Anyone else have one that can provide some insight?

Took it over to vote for easy parking and spotted a 2011 STR. Apparently there is another one near me. Need to get the guy on 675.net

** It was still there when I came out so I assume the guy lives at the apartments next to where I go to vote. I might leave a '675.net' note on it tomorrow when the voting lines go away

The cotter run is pretty awesome but the road is fairly poor atm due to the dam being built, and just generally shitty until u get to tidbinbilla. Watch out for gravel and dirt and take it easy for the first lap and you'll have a great time :) oh and on Mt Mac (definitely worth short detour, even tho it is also all truck damaged at the moment) watch out for deep currigations in some corners, gravel, and oil on the road on burnout corner (more likely on a Sunday morning) open eyes saves lives! (and reccie laps lol) but if you want a someone to ride with if you're around this way the hubby and I would be happy to show you around :)

That matches the Hyperpro billet rear shock so all the suspension is 100% built/tuned for me now :D
Umm wait what???? I thought that SPEED Triples were this fork configuration not Streets???

Also how much was the rear shock?
