So the point I was getting across stands. You don't need a light for riding on the track. And GP bikes don't use them either

Didn't know you were doing GP races now. When did you start those.

You don't need lights for running at the track but that doesn't mean you can't have them.

I, and all others in our squad, remember you stating you won't parts/brands that MotoGP doesn't use. My post stated you don't need lights to ride the track. Why run parts on a purpose built machine that aren't necessary? Don't remember last time I've seen a Garmon gps or licorice despensing machine on a track vehicle Just more parts to break and cost more money

The light is cool, just costs more and isn't necessary

I rib Chris and others occasionally regarding money spent on their bikes is more than I'm willing to. But, it doesn't make it wrong. Hell, if you're going after burn-z, you might as well go after firehawk, z06, mrailing and more specifically 10GR1.

Point is, it doesn't matter. Don't like what someone runs, not your bike. Who eff'n cares?

I did read it. Just kind of a general statement. Light, no light. CF and Ti, or plastic and steel. Factory or modded to hell. Popcorn machine or not. Doesn't matter. It's a bike, it's got two wheels. Let's go hit the track.

I'm glad both our statements were general then Hopefully nobody comes in here, takes it personal and tries to justify their actions

I just like people who bolt on all sorts of go fast parts on their bikes and get OWNED by someone who has a pretty much stock bike who runs way less track days than others.

Again, does it matter how much someone wants to spend?

Heavily modded bikes are great for those that don't have them.
1) If you beat them you can tell them what a waste of money
2) If you don't beat them you can blame it on parts
