Hello from a old fart..

I just picked up a 2010 Street III R with 1400 miles on it and plenty of up grades. I have been searching for the "Perfect Bike" for many years. I might have found it!

I only rode it home for 200 miles and these damn Florida straight roads but for a 675 this bike packs a punch. 2 words kept popping into my helmet--FUN AND AWESOME.

The original owner had added a Penske shock, Leo GP Pro, carbon fiber fenders. Just about everything was replaced with lighter aftermarket parts. I think with a half tank of fuel it weighs 420!

Being retired I spend a hour or so on the internet daily if I am not on a ride. I will attempt to add to this already fine website and spend some money in the Classified section. Thanks for having me and ride safe..Bob

Bob,

Congratulations although you will find your bike is a bit lighter than you think. A box stock '10 ST3R fully fueled is right at 420. Getting it under 400 is pretty easy.

.. My Bike.. ...has a new owner :(

Thanks guys..

A few questions and comments:

1. I will post some pics as soon as I detail the new to me bike.

2. When I picked up the bike the passenger footpeg brackets were not on the bike. BUT those 4 bolts above the tire looked bad. Is there a popular or simple solution?

3. One of the items that came with the bike is a product called Tuneboy. It has a cable and software and tune edit keys. What is a fair asking price? I know I will never use it--hell I only started using computers 5 years ago!

What is the easiest way to weigh the bike?

Thanks

The cable and software retail new for around $300.00 - $340.00 and the key goes for $200.00 new. As for weighing it you can go to your local scrap yard and they will usually let u put it on the scale.
