    ever try imageshack.us ?? i don't think they kill the image size (unless you ask them to)

    plus they don't require an account if you don't care about keeping track of your uploads

    I haven't and I always mean to. I just have so many damn pics on photobucket already haha. Maybe I'll make an account with them eventually but I wasn't too keen on the site layout. May be worth it if the pics stay in original quality though

    Or just use DeviantArt. They don't change the quality and they keep track of your pics.

    So the accident, and then my laptop died at work 2 days ago, and then my alternator died yesterday. LOL

    I fixed just about everything. Headlight, hood, fender, bumper, and changed the alternator today.
    Bad luck, bad luck. Hope this insurance clears so I can have 8k in good luck. lol

    took the cbr out for about a 30 min ride today, no more sore ass and back from riding!
    soo glad i got this bike, handles amazing.

    man, my wrists are killing though, i was reading online and people say the sore wrist thing is from gripping to hard, not squeezing your knees on the tank and holding your weight on your wrists..so im sure ill work that out, or have to start hitting the gym lol

    ive got a fender eliminator, side tank grips and led signals ordered now, and the rim tape will go on tomorrow. most the parts should be here this week except the fender eliminator kit and the seat cowl, those are about 3 weeks.

    Awesome man. And yeah if this is your first sport bike you're really going to need to change up the way you sit.

    Grip the tank with your knees so that you're holding up your upper body with your abs.

    Keep your back straight, not hunched over.

    Your grip on the bars should be light but controlled. And there should be zero pressure on your wrists.

    You should learn proper cornering techniques as well as they are very different on SS bikes

    abs? shit, my mini keg doesnt offer much strength lol
    i ride with a compression shirt and back support on loosely (herniated disks and soft tissue and nerve damage)

    i kept thinking i was gripping to hard and would loosen up a little then naturally grip hard again, its just gonna take some getting use to.

    as for cornering, man it is EASIER. feels like zero effort to take tighter turns and to take longer wider faster ones. its like night and day.
    now i dont ride hard at all, so dont worry i wont be pushing her past my skill limits but wow, im very impressed with this bike.
    you barely feel any of the bumps and grooves in the road, the steering dampener is electronic and does a amazing job.
    i hit about 80km/hr today and it felt like i was barely moving.

    Where'd you get remote start system from? LOL
    Just throwing you a link to the accident pics, as I thought thats what you were asking. Otherwise... the alternator just had bad timing and went. LOL

    I think it's a glitch. I see the correct title in the link, but it brings me to some "remote start with northstar" thread hahaha
