Yes, it f'n hurts very bad... no, there isn't enough morphine in that little pump to stop it from hurting.....
Have you seen.... my Stapler?.....

Yup, that about covers it.

Carbon fiber is basically very thin strands of carbon -- even thinner than human hair. The strands can be twisted together, like yarn.

Although carbon fiber is very expensive, it’s very popular. It has a fantastic weight-to-strength ratio.


Its strength and weight make it ideal for electric cars, sports cars and luxury cars.
I'm intreagued, tell me more...do you like Gladiator movies?...rainy nights in front of the fireplace?...a cheeky little Merlot some Brie and crusty bread perhaps?....

IMO, the Bandit was underrated and it is good the see the model finally get recognition.
Due to the current economic woes, we tried to highlight many of the good values out there. The GSX has an excellent balance of price, comfort, performance and weight, and it's a cheap alternative to pricier (and usually heavier) S-T rigs.

It cranks the bike faster than anything else I've tried as the article says, never needs to go on the trickle charger, and weighs about 1 1/2 lbs. Incredible. No, I don't work for them!
Just posted our review of the Shorai LFX!
