to the streets that is!!! I finally decided I would not ride anywhere except the track. So I bought an R1 not too long ago and I've been busy converting my bike into the track scalpel I wish it to be and I'm just about done and wanted to share with you guys. It's about 99% done, my Athon GPS-R cluster comes tomorrow, and some Woodcraft cases are on the way - and then I'm ready to rock! Next trackday is in about two and a half weeks. I'm getting new fairings and a nice paintjob in a couple months.. for now this is how it'll be:

nice looking bike, enjoy the track. If I had the cash I would get a spare bike just for the track.

:stpd:
What are the specks. What body kit, pipes etc?
What prompted your decision not to ride on the street anymore?
To be honest I just don't have fun on the street anymore unless I'm breaking the law pertty much. If I keep doing that it'll catch up to me.

Also because I just got engaged and I don't want to worry my new fiance or my family. I was commuting in really bad traffic 50 miles everyday.

yeah you guys are probably right about the paint/fairings.. i'll probably end up spending it on tires anyways :)

that harris slider looks like it might be coming my way too. thanks for the tip.

Do you run Pepsi or Coke for fluid? I prefer Coke...less fade, but a little sweet on off cambers.
