Snapped the first three at the Butlers Orchard event in MD (this Sunday!). Last one at the Virginia Vintage MC show in Leesburg.

Around here, with the shitty roads, it does pretty well. If I had to choose tires again, I would go with a different one. I love the look of these but the sqaured off tread makes it dive into corners if you get over too far.

Hey Carpy, I see a new Thruxton in there, how do you like it?

Here's my bonnie:

http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j1...g?t=1182521341

I just rebuilt the motor, 904cc wiseco kit, +2mm intake valves, +1mm exhaust valves, everything ported and polished, etc. Stock carbs for now, but I'm getting some big mikuni flatslides soon...

Also, if you want to check out a forum mostly dedicated to cafe'd new bonnies and thruxies, check this out:
