    Still indulging the uno frame fetish there Ted.

    It certainly is a nice build but to my albeit very limited aesthetic sensibilities I prefer the other one because the alignment of the cans with the sub frame rails is slightly closer to parallel.

    Although that is not say there are many who would kick the uno out of bed for farting....
    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    The full scorpion system on my red S comes with high level link pipes. Even higher than the pic Snowbound posted. I hated them up there and removed the high level links and put them in the standard position. So much better for me. They also interfered with the number plate and indicators and there was no chance of fitting the throwover panniers to it either.
    Here they are. When Adria owned it of course.Trying something new-bouncer.jpgClick image for larger version.
