Oh, yeah.
You haven't seen my gixxer, haven't you?
If you have, you'll understand.
It's pretty Boo Booed (by previous owner who raced at CMRA sprints).


I would love to, but I don't think I can afford it.
If I find several hundred dollars laying around the ground, I'll think about it.


This is Boo Boo powered by ductape.
Believe me.
It's a very photogenic bike.
It looks worse in person, but runs and sounds awesome.

That gixxer sounds wicked. The FI tune that yosh can spits out puts my exhaust to shame. I need one of those ex race bikes, I'm getting tired of swapping track and street fairings every trackday weekend. :BangHead:

Bill, you are such a dork.
Right under my avatar, there are two bikes listed!
And which bike did you think it was in my signature picture???
LOL
:laughing6

I got it in August, 2005.
It's a 2001 GSXR600 with lots of goodies.
Boo Boo is a street illegal, so I only get to ride at trackdays (5 trackdays with Boo Boo).
Trying to make good friends with Boo Boo.

Just teasing you, Bill.
:icon_smil

It's different.
I haven't rode I-4 over ten years, so it was a whole new learning experience.
I'm still working on my gearing and raving on Boo Boo.

But for the track ride, Boo Boo is a whole lot better than SV.
Better suspension (Penske rear shock and Race Worx forks), breaks (race fluid), tires (I run race tires), Ohlins steering damper, Yoshi full system, etc... can't complain.
SV just needs a lot of work for track ride.
I enjoy riding both V-twin and I-4 back and forth.

It's not easy to get around on Boo Boo in pit area though.
Boo Boo doesn't have a kick stand, so without my friend's sport wheel chock, I can't even get on and off the bike.
The hardest part is getting on Boo Boo.
The bike is almost as tall as my chest high (I'm 5'2").

58904147 L

But I do need all the ground clearance I can get.
I like leaning and hanging off of the bike.
Even SV's too low to ride at the track.
With stock height, my kick stand was barely off the ground...


79816054 L

Sorry about the thread jack, folks.
No more Boo Boo and photos.

+1 she don't do too bad with the SV either!!! Well, except for the one incident at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and even then I don't think she got dirty.
