Up with the swift-ness.

So, I picked up a set of used swifts from member Tecky101 and finally installed them on the stock struts hoping to get some of my lost ground clearance back.

Results are in. I gained 1" up front and 1.25 out back, compared to the wrx take offs I use to have on.

Impressions. The extra clearance is nice! The ride is better than the wrx take offs. But it looks so much better lower.

Damn! Makes me wish I didn't sell the set of Swift Sport Spings I had but didn't install!

I am going to miss the looks of the wrx set up. It really looks badass with it.

US129

The wife and I took a weekend trip last weekend to Gatlinburg. While we were down that way we headed down to the Dragon. We trailer the cruiser down in case the weather stayed nice and it was decent enough for us to make a run on the Dragon.

Congratulations! Welcome to your new Web Site! has lots of photos from sunday march 7th. We only have photos that we took for now, and plan to buy some of his.

Onto the photos.



The tree of shame





Random photos of different cars/bikes.











according to the owner if the Evo its has a 5 speed swap and a 35R and makes 600whp on high boost.










'


I was LOLing at this bike but it seemed to run good.
