Vid on the GSXR Grand at TWS (Texas World Speedway)

My first time actually riding the bike, Deffinately need suspension and a few minor adjustments to keep the front wheel on the ground. Quite a bit different from my r6, got to get used to it, but im sure I'll get there.

I corner worked that day at TWS (Texas World Speedway) (labor day, unless this is another day) and recognized the helmet and leathers but remember seeing you on an R6 at GSS. I figured it was a new bike since it still had blue tape and you were hauling in lvl 3. lol cool video.

Yeah, that was the very first time I rode it, but I was taking it really easy because I had the street bodywork on it. This vid is of this past sunday I consider it the first time riding it because I had race body and wasn't afriad to crash it so I pushed it a little to see what I could do on it. I got alot of work to do... Its a different beast from the r6.

Nice vid. Welcome to the 1k's. They are a bit much sometimes especially at like GSS. All different brake markers then a 600 since you are charging the corners faster. So much fun though. Look me up when you need some mods for it. Didn't see you at GSS this Sat. I see why now.

Yeah I need to take it to GSS so I can get used to throwing it through tight turns pretty quick. Only thing I don't have on this bike is motor work and suspension.

My Ohlins TTX shock and damper did wonders for my 07 1k.

That's the plan... Had the same setup on my r6 and loved it.
