Tony, hows the GP shifting coming along? Have you brain farted yet thinking you were down shifting, but actually up shifted? The more you use it the more you'll love it.
I've done it once going from 2nd to 1st instead of 3rd but no one was around to see. :crash

I actually love it now. I don't know why all bikes aren't shipped with this set up. It makes much more sense than the old way.

Like my new sig pic? Shane hooked me UP!!! :jump

Awesome sig. Shane did a good job. I knew you would love the GP shifting. You'll still mess up from time to time, but it's the way to go and makes more sense to shift this way.

You know what's funny about that? The only bike I have setup for GP is the R6. The only time I mess up is on the R1 wearing a suit. For some reason it just works for me. But if I'm in a suit going down 28 coming into one of the slower corners, I'll up shift when I need to down shift :lol In street gear or on the Vmax I don't even put any thought into it :dunno

It was definitely a :scared moment. It was the turn with the bridge, heading toward the CROT. As soon as I let the clutch out and got no engine braking I was :shake
