Talking A big thank you for "The Stig"


I wanted to give you a big shout out to you for finding me the Staintune exhaust. I would have never found the pipes I did and would have probably shelled out a helluva lot more $$ for a new set. I definitely owe you a cold beer at a minimum. If you are ever in the corn fields of Indiana make sure you look me up because I owe you one. Until that happens I will have to have Madbuyer work as a stand in for you next weekend at MotoGp. See the shot below for a look at the new pipes on the bike.

From one RC and VFR brother to another....Thanks again!!

Nice, sexy find for your VFR!

Miguel is a stand up guy and amazingly helpful when you need him.

He hooked me up with my Moris a while back.

I feel very lucky to have him in the forum and very privileged to know him in person, even though we've never met face to face

Makis and Gts455 - I couldn't agree more!
Miguel and I have helped each other over the last year as well. He sent me a signed hat from Motegi MotoGP last year too!

Cheers to you Stig!!!

I also owe my close friend Miguel my sincere thanks, he is the most stand up guy I have never had the pleasure of meeting face to face.

Cheers, buddy.

Thanks guys for the compliments. It was a surprise to find this thread this morning.

You guys have each helped me out too when I needed it & I've been happy to help when I could. That's just the way this community works well.

As for Motleyfan's exhausts, when I saw you were after a set and there was one available, it was just a matter of passing the info onto a brother.
Not just an RC51 one, but a VFR one too.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.
