    that thing is hideous. I never understood why people kill what the vehicle was intnded for with stupid mods (i.e.: slammed sportbikes, lowered pick-ups, etc).

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    What wrong with a slammed bike or truck?? A lot of people would say we are stupid for the stuff we do to skis! I DONT like the spinners on a quad but a lowered bike/truck is practical and can look good!

    I hate the whole slammed sportbike thing. I'm OK with the slammed and stretched bikes that are more "drag bike" in style and usually Hyabusas or ZX-12s and such, but I hate to see a slammed 600RR or GSXR1000. To me these are purely sportbikes that are intended for twisties and speed. These bikes are meant to be ridden hard and fast or at the track. Slamming them for "looks" to me is just a waste IMO. If your sportin' chicken strips, you're not really riding!

    Like I said beauty is definately in the eye of the beholder.

    i have owned 3 R1's (none lowered) and have ridden one that was dropped (not super low) and It rode just fine actually as good if not better than my stock suspension. It was a expensive kit that the guy had done because he was so short!

    Lowering the suspension with the appropriate dogbones and shorter front springs to accomodate a small inseam is OK. I've ridden a few bikes like this myself. The drop was about 1-1.5" and didn't affect the handling too much until you got the thing leaned way over which then led to dragging of some hard parts.

    Let's not forget that a bike has rake and trail that the chasis is tuned for that get all screwed up once you slam it to the ground. Changing rake by even a degree or two, makes a huge difference in a bike's handling charecteristics. If you don't ride twisties, then it is not so noticeable.

    It's when I see 5" of the forks sticking up through the triple trees and the rear slammed the same that drives me nuts. The travel of the suspension hasn't changed, but the clearance has (check the underside of people's uppers and the top of their fenders for where they hit when the suspension compresses).

    If a slammed sportbike is your (anyone's)thing, that's great. It's just not for me.

    I loved it when we were out carving and would meet up with a pack of slammed posers. They could never keep up, even with more displacement. Now when the road was straight, they could somewhat keep up, but when the turns came up, they were done. The slammed bikes had no chance in keeping up.

    I buy bikes to ride the snot out of them and increase my skills on the track. Not to pose and look cool when riding around town.

    I guess its what ever you like. None of my bikes have ever been lowered at all and would not do it myself!
