He is one of the few extended swing arm approved members on the forum and he drags his bike as well. Good luck, btw we aren't D-bags, we just care to much about what these bikes were intended for.

Yeah, I've got an idea: Swap your Ohlins suspension with someone on this forum who will use it for what it was designed for, take the extra cash and buy your blocks. Everybody wins, especially the suspension bits which get a good home rather than being subjected to drag racing and stunting. Hell, I'll trade you my standard Street Triple stuff, it's about all you'll need for the type of riding you do...

Btw, I ride in 100+ degree Central Texas heat in my 1-piece all the time. Judging from your YouTube channel you don't even own a mesh jecket, much less a leather suit, so how do you know how it feels?
