I just picked up a Mazda CX-5 in the same color. Already have a older Miata. Did yours come with DISO?

The tubing used on AR6000's was called 'Aero dynamics Cro-Mo D.P.G.' -- Double Plain Gauge, I would guess. I had one at one time. Damn nice bike.

Yes, repainted, over the chrome that was shot. It was the only bike I had for many years, and didn't always get wiped down.
