Bear witness. (But pay no attention to the missing right-side fender shroud or fork protectors. Both are on order.) Man do the Metzler M1 Sportecs love the twisties. I also have a pair of knobbies on stock rims for the dirt. But damn... running a 120/70/17 in front and a 160/60/17 in back is a blast. Talk about handling! Thanks again to Paul Brend of Moto-Master - http://www.moto-master.com/ - and Thumpteralk - http://www.thumpertalk.com/bike/pages/brent_bio.htm - for hooking me up with the wheelset. Good price. (Thumpertalk discount) ...and a really cool guy. Knowledgable as hell. He put my mind at ease prior to conversion, which kinda freaked me out. I had a lot of questions about incompatibilities and such. Paul "talked me down" and the whole thing took less than 2 hours with no headaches.
