    It took that many to find enough usable valve rockers for one complete bike?

    Lol

    I like them a lot.

    Most importantly, value. Almost never paid full price for one. One with a salvage title went for almost $10k on eBay. You could get them all day long for $5k and if you still can if you look hard enough.

    They wont be going down in value ever. Im not saying they will be worth tons of money, but they sure as shit wont be moving down.

    It was my 1st bike. It was pretty much stock when I bought it. Before I ever rode it I made a bunch of changes and it came out that spring looking like this....How many bikes have you owned?-20171119_233214-jpg

    Since 1998:

    1993 Kawi ZX-6E
    1999 Ducati 900SS
    2000 Ducati M900Sie
    2008 Ducati 1098
    2012 Aprilia Tuono V4R

    2006 SV-650S (track bike)

    I was on a roll for a while, but I'm quickly losing interest in street riding, mountain bikes having taken over for a bazillion good reasons.

    Mine was pretty much bone stock. Bought it from a buddy who was buying a Formula Ford. Rode it all summer before I joined the Army. My “luggage” was a duffel bag strapped on behind me.
