    I'll buy it for $5K. You can keep all of the street stuff and carbon and sell it separately to get the other $2K.

    These pads are AMAZING so bitey and they just rock. These pads coupled with my Brembo 18x19 M/C i have never felt better brakes, they were so good at Broadford.
    That's what I have on mine with an RCS. Pretty sure they could stop a train. Almost too much bite for my tastes, when they're worn out will probably try something a liiitttttle more progressive

    No doubt. She was gonna ship it to Hawai'i too. Not sure which island. Probably not Molokai though. =D

    That's where I am. Good, I don't want the competition hahaha
    90% likely Oahu. Because, well - we have 90% of the state's population
    PS: Because of island inflation, that bike would be likely $12K out here resale with salvage title

    eh, I'm partially joking (is that what that means?). I'd love to do that but I'd have to run it by my wife (who is generally very understanding). I think it would work for you...but it would be a bit of a pain for you for sure.

    Since we're talking brakes...EBC rotors plus EBC GPFAX pads = too much bite. Fuck me...I was on the ground at a very high rate of speed before I knew what I did wrong!

    You ride your Tuono on Molokai?

    Was just there in Vacay. Stayed out by Rock Point. Didn't want to leave.

    Haha no I meant on Oahu. Although I'm dying to ship my bike to the island of Hawaii. The entire perimeter of our island is 100 miles - it gets old sometimes hahahaha

    Haha round and round we go. Damn, if they could close off the Hana Highway at the East and West ends of Maui--Supermoto bliss! One lane means it would be pretty ballsy to go flying through there at full speed with oncoming traffic. Didn't make it to the Big Island this time. Also saw lots of radaring by leo's near Makapu'U Beach in your neck of the woods.

    Haha a lot of the road to Hana is only one lane anyways, shared by both directions of traffic. I'm not that brave. HOWEVER the south road to Hana is 80% unpaved and was a BLAST in the rental jeep haha - always get the insurance. Always a ton of lasering on our island. I have over 100 citations :-/
    That's why I want to take the bike to Big Island. Looooong open smooth roads with no residents and no leo's lol

    Hooooly fug. How do you stay insured and riding? Carry poi to give to leos? I've been pulled over ~ 7 or 8 times, zero tickets in 10 years riding. Mostly just luck though.
