    Here ya go... This is riding to the track position. They'll get readjusted just before the starting gun.:happy:

    The bars match the wings on the tank like this. And, it actually rides much more comfortably this way. Imagine that!!!:21:

    For comparison...

    For those of you keeping score at home, this is the second build-off appearance of the racing stand.:)

    No self respecting racing bike would ever be caught dead with a kick stand!
