UPDATE ... PoPo's Bent Rims...

Update *** Both my rims will not be able to be repaired... the axis is bent on them too... I still cant believe that I hit something so so hard and stayed upright... Patrick is doing his best to find me inexpensive rims but if you guys know anybody selling 04 and up 1000 RR rims please let me know... I would really like to get back on 2 wheels... and thank to all those that helped me get the bike to Motorcycles Unlimited yesterday...

You know how expensive they are?

You don't really need those type of high performance parts for the street ride.
All you need is something durable and would last for a while.

But we got to admit that a set of carrozeria or marchesine magnesium wheels will really make stand out the bike. I plan to get a set soon...eventually.
