Top gear, or fifth, has a higher gear ratio for highway cruising, but I still found myself hunting for that nonexistent sixth gear.

Good ol' Donya Carlson. I've been a subscriber to Rider magazine for 20 yrs and I always liked the articles she writes for them.

Nice write-up. I wonder what a set of those alum. rims would cost and if they'd fit my 05?

nice right up, but how would the heel toe sifter be with a larger foot, that pic already looks cramped

Hey Viper, I read that same line and thought to myself it should have said something about adding a DJ / Kruze drive ~laugh~

They are. I wear a size 13 and it can be a PIA sometimes with hard stiff boots. I wish the toe/heel shifter was about 2" over all in length for my needs.
