2011 STR in Phantom Black
« on: April 09, 2018, 12:33:17 PM »
Started out pretty much standard. had a werkes end can R&G crash protectors and some old squared off tires on it and a weird flyscreen that reminded me of transformers.



put on some pilot roas 3 tires and done some adventuring on it.







Then the modifying started.







triumph quickshifter, SC Project lowboy 3-1 system, triumph shorty levers and some carbon panels. evotech rad guard and been through 2 tail tidys as i didnt like the first one.

decided to ride to Wales and do a trackday in Angelsey in the WET! amazing track and in hindsight a terrible idea, thankfully i survived in one piece.

Been to numerous road races and to the TT a few times now too, which is madness.









this is it as it stands now. had ebay bar ends mirrors which were horrific and been swapped out with some quality 3 piston ones.

Also if any of you ever get over to Ireland, do a road trip around the west coast. It is breathtakingly beautiful. Im slowing making my way down it.

Won't lie - I really like the JPS aesthetic.

Nice looking bike mate, always been a fan of the black and gold theme. Noticed the cheeky Baron sticker too.  :008:

Always liked that black and gold scheme, as someone who grew up in the JPS Norton era. Would've got one had i not come across my bike in a shop at a great price and low mileage.

I've ridden RoI as well and agree entirely with your comments. I'm a little bit jealous actually, maybe i should round up my bike buddy and do it again (silly shogger went and had kids, hardly get him out at all now, but they're nearly teenagers now so maybe...)

We went across and up to Dublin, down the West coast, along the bottom, and back on the ferry from Rosslare IIRC. The roads (back then) were not exactly bikers paradise, there was gravel, suicidal sheep, mad dogs, and (genuinely) Paddy and Murphy pushing a piano up a country lane when we went! But the scenery is fantastic, and the people very friendly, good food too, and of course Guinness and whiskey. Would love to go again.
