How about this. dont paint it because your just going to f*ck it up the way your riding and don't worry about that bike... It'll be around longer than you judging by your decisions your making about how to ride it. A cage doesn't save it on a highway drop it will just flip it and destroy everything worse than it falling on a frame slider.

Buy a 'busa and ride it with no gear... better yet jump off a bridge with a rock around your ankle and keep my insurance cheap.

For real, take MSF and spend your money on good gear. If you want to stunt, do it in a parking lot there are a ton of stunters on here.

Quit doing squid wheelies!

On public roads keep it on two wheels, don't be an @$$ hat or show off. I hope that isn't why you bought a cycle in the first place.

if you want to stunt on it I seriously would not bother painting it since youre gonna be breaking anyway.

and I'd recommend learning your stunts someplace quiet and secluded and with lots of gear on and friends around to dial 911 just in case.
not on the freeway.

If you want to get into stunting give Javi a call and stop by the garage. I dont think FI will hold up to any real falls but a lot of people buy them, I have one in the garage collecting dust. Retired it after it striped my motor mounts.

hey at least you guys care when i do bust my a$$ and freeway wheelies are rare and usually at night with no traffic.

I'm tryin to learn how to stunt on my own I know NO ONE how to teach me so I have to teach myself. and I'm not going to go out to ASI and embarrass myself with squid wheelies and bust my a$$ tryin to do slow stand up first gear wheelies.

night... then it's harder to see what is in front of you and horder for people to see you laying in the road if/when you crash.

and about embarrasing yourself... that's how everyione learns. go out there with the people that know how to do it, watch them, and ask them to help you. your learning curve goes up so much faster that way

Take the punches and roll with it man. Getting made fun of is just part of joining the group. If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

It is better than eating pavement and then us hearing about it on the evening news.

Then we will really would make fun of you!

We want you to stay alive longer and also portray a good image of sport bikes, not the common squid the media makes us all look like.
