take that safety course asap, 90 % of people taught by friends or themselves crash within the first year, only 40% of those taken the MSF course have.

good luck and be safe!

Yeah its stock except for the front turn signals, the trunk looks hacked with new rear signals, is the stock windscreen tinted? There is also a **** ton of stickers, the rims are painted..... it doesn't change the fact that the F4i is a kickazz bike and You Will enjoy it!

Yeah, I took the MSF course and I would highly recommend it. You just feel much more prepared for the road and douche bag driver who don't see you.

check ebay for the sliders. I got some that are billet aluminum with a derlin puck that screws into the end. They stick out a little farther than I'd like (cosmeticly) But I like the idea of replacing the puck for a couple bucks insted of getting a new set if/when I go down. Ride safe bro.
