    Oh yeah, have put some nice gold pinstripeing around my rims too, looks hot with my gold brake callipers (if that's what they are, (blonde)).

    Kewl, please let us know once the Ultra Lows arrive. I have been thinking of getting some too so would be good to see how you go and find out how they feel....
    You are going to have to put up some pics of the bars and pinstripes, I have been thinking of putting some sky blue stripes on mine, look forward to seeing yours once all done. Cheers
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    Sweet as, the NZ order is going to take ages.
    I found a place in the UK, just trying to sort out delivery options.

    I will get some pics of the pinstripes soon, they do look damn good and only about $30 as well.

    I had a short look for one for my VTR250, looks like the same rear end. Never found one.

    Those Hornet 250s are very very nice.

    Sooooo many nice Hornets here! I'm looking to getting a possible front windshield. Have intention to travelling to Welly in my holidays and wondering whether it would be worth having one!

    So much drool factor here - hopefully I get to see some of these sleek kewl machines with mark one eyeball one day!

    Hey Kendog, have your Ultra Low bars arrived yet? I am really keen to get a set but just waiting to see how you go with them before I make my move....

    Hello guys...
    Sorry to 'butt in' your discussion.

    I really like hornets and I'm seriously considering one for a next bike (when i get my full), as alternative to SV650 or SV1000...

    can you guys who own hornets answer the following to me (excuse my noobness):

    1. what is the fuel economy/consumption of these machines ?
    2. are there any storage compartments in the bike (very important)
    3. at high speed cruise (100-110kph) it it nice and comfortable ? does it still have grunt for a quick acceleration or does it kinda feel like it doesnt really wanna do it ?
    4. is the front and rear suspension adjustable ?

    Thanks in advance !
