They're surprisingly supple... I was expecting them to be a bit brutal, but I've put some pads on that leave a little to be desired, and it's dumbed them right down.. :lol:

Those Onza tyres may be the key as to why they ride so differently - they are a bit soft and dont roll as well as some others.

looking very nice... the only thing i'd say (and this is purely from my personal hatred of doing it) is lose the spesh bar ends (or at least polish them up)

I just don't like other bike manufatuers oem stuff on other makers frames. It would be the same with an orange hot rod bar on a spesh, it just wouldn't look right! (and i did see some SS orange bar ends in the for sale section if they tickled your fancy*)



*sale is nothing to do with me.
