Hello, Duckhunter.
I see that you're up late at night trolling the Forum website. I was busy getting 'photos of my parts delivery from UPS yesterday & noticed your reply to my post, but haven't read your missive yet. Let me post my shots & I'll get to what you wrote. And I hope you didn't critisize me for my brother getting a liter bike as his first ride. I said all that you guys said & more, since I'm a rider too, but in the end it was his choice.
Well, here are some pics of UPS delivering my bodywork, including the front Metzeler Sportec M5, instead of the Roadtec the dealership accidentally put on, before the bike was shipped to me in Riyadh.
Now I have to get the bodywork wrapped in 3M film before installation.
I shall post pics of that process, as well.
Take care.
P.S. The road surfaces in Riyadh are like glass, so pardon me if I don't use up ALL of my tire surface to the edges. It must be the heat curing the tarmac, when it's laid or something else, since the roads in Jeddah or Dammam aren't like this.
And I hang off by habit & that uses less lean angle. Safer, too.
P.S. Can't post pics ! What the .... ... ?

Dr.Rahi.... Best to contact our MOD Ystejam....very friendly will help you out with the pics.

I am always here LOL, I do not critisize people for the most part....BUT I TRULY hope he is not in over his head with that buy....I have more then once seen guys and BRAND NEW bikes come in....show off the bling....then try to show off the powah and such and it all goes wrong. I really pray he is respectful and honest with him self in realizing he is not up to snuff to handle that bike with out some proper guidance from a trainer or some expert advice from a track day or even basic skills refresh.
I would hate to see him come away hurt or worse.
Thanks for the comments on the new SUV.

Thanks for your advice, Duckhunter.
I've been repeatedly drilling all the things you say & more, into his head every chance I've had.
I think he'll be careful. However, I do share your concern. And for that I am very grateful.
Take Care.
