Tears of joy reign down upon my face. :D

I bought my girl some new shoes. Metz 260/40, 160/60 are also in house and will join the festivities. :bigthumbsup:

I'll post some pics once installed.

Nice wheels. Coastal moto wheels are great wheels. Great customer service too.

Can I ask why you only went with a 8.5" rear wheel instead of the 10"?

You bet! Jeff is really great and customer service is top notch. As far as the wheel size, the 10" gives you more flexability to give you that ultra custom look and much wider tires. Nice stuff for sure. However, just like lowering the bike, even though it looks awesome, I didnt want to chance changing the stock handling characteristics of the bike. Maybe it's better, maybe not.

I love the way the stock bike handles and the poor pegs suffer for it. :D

From what I read the Metz will make the bike handle even better. I think for sure I'll still be able to stand back and look at it with that silly involuntary grin on my face!! :bigthumbsup:

280 really doesnt change the handling characteristics. Ive had mine for two seasons now and I love it.

Now the Metzlers will change the handling. Cost you a little for new shoes, but well worth it to me. Ive got about 8000 miles out of my metz right now, I might get another 500 miles. So a good tire in my mind.

But congrats on ur wheels, it will make ur bike look completly different.

Ok boys here it is. :bigthumbsup:

What a difference it makes. WOW!! The improvement in the ride quality with the Metz is also completly indescribable! My Irate Skull raditator cover should be in any day now too!! These will match the skull Kury footpegs. :D

Sorry for the crappy phone pics.
