Great bike... Never like the headlight setup on the Kwaks though... Still, the 650 is a screamer for a sub liter bike.

What's the dry weight on that now? about 350 pounds?

393.  Not bad as a dry weight but feels light as a feather.  Wonderful bike all around.

The 600s-750s are crazy now... These bikes are just as fast as Litre bikes were 10 years ago... INSANE.

for me it isn't a past time,its a job. i was only shooting my sniper rifle about once every week, and i was only shooting my AR every 3-4 months. i have been shooting my handguns pretty often due the the hogs getting brave and trying to chill on my back porch ;D

for someone who is one of the only two certified LEO snipers in the region, i have to say thats pretty lazy on my part. So i am currently working on the situation.CORRECTION i am now the only certified sniper in my region, because the other one let his brother in law use his rifle to go fucking deer hunting and the in-law broke his scope base.

i literally just got that last piece of info while i was typing this post. how fucking careless is that, why the fuck would you let someone borrow a gun that cost $2700, with a scope attached to it that cost $2300 (i know because i built it) just to go shoot a damn deer.the bastard just text messaged me this bullshit,needless to say he is about to get a call from me saying he is relieved of his sniper position.i am glad i just got through training 2 more guys.WTF!!!

sorry about all of that, i needed to vent a little.i am good now. i am now off to my shop to see if i have enough materials to put together at least one rifle so i wont be the the only one on call this week :D

When I was 17 I was determined to join the Marine Corps and get to sniper school.  I still have my ghillie suit in my closet and have used it for paintball since (works wonders btw).

Awesome profession.  A little too hc for me though.  I'll stick with chasing junkies in Baltimore over getting blown to bits in Afghanistan/Iraq.

I agree


I blew right through an intersection in the middle of a night because I couldn't see the stop sign because of the poor illumination on the 10R I was on
