    Heated up the block from a 88-90 GSX1100F and dropped the sleeves. This winter the sleeves and pistons will be going into the GS1150efe, 1260cc should give me a respectable boost in hp and ft lbs.

    Never cared for 80's music.
    Cutting the sleeves off a denim jacket seems such a waste of a perfectly good jacket.

    The mechanic who looks after the critical maintenance for me says I wouldn't get anything better unless I went with inverted forks. He's got impressive credentials so I accept his judgment.

    I'd never touch any european import outside the warranty period, ridiculous parts costs. I prefer super reliable Japanese cars with a plentiful and relatively inexpensive parts supply.
