Thats sweet! You have put some $$$ into that thing. I picked up anothe bike myself for the track, and Im actually gonna race it next year. I hear what your saying about the streets though, just not as fun anymore pushing it around blind corners knowing a surprise could be around one at any time. Have fun!

Very nice bike bro. Sure hate to see you leave the street riding scene though. How can you not ride in this beautiful California weather ?

Bike looks great as is!! Plus if you are just going to track it, why spend the $$ painting something thats gonna go down (more than likely at some point) anyway? Just ride the hell out of it!!

Very nice bike I would'nt waste the $$$ on a paint job looks great use the money for spare parts. Check out the harris slider might save your rearset

Just got mine from the UK yesterday, waiting on replacement clutch puck and new custom race pegs for my rearsets to arrive :rock

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:











:rock:rock
Do you know where I can get that tail fairing at?
