that bike is a thing of beauty. my favorite body style of all the 1000s, and you got a rare color scheme. i remember when you first bought it and rode it to fayetteville. pics do not do it justice.

I hadnt seen this until now.......I would love to go racing with y'all since I havent been to the track since I got the Busa. Used to be in a weekly points series back home in Maine with my 600.....but that was 1/8th mile and was an IHRA track so there were no rules.

Needless to say I dont have full leathers (and I will surely go too fast), and have no idea where my lowering strap is. Guess I need to get ordering some new brackets and strap, and get a leather jacket (we were able to run in textile jackets back home)

Thanks Mike! Yeah she has been a great bike.. It's got 15k miles on it now and never one single problem with it. It is my favorite look/style of all gixxers...(hence why I shipped it cross country when I bought it).... It just needs about 40-50hp more to put me ahead of the S1000rr and busas from a roll...

When I do it, it will be a sleeper for sure.

I know Chris and I are supposed to run again. His low mileage 06 R6 strapped, full exhaust, dyno tuned PCIII, air filter, geared, lightened all around, etc. . . versus my high mileage 06 636 with a full exhaust, PCIII with a random tune, and -1, +1 gearing. Oh yeah, he cracks my to the 60'. I have a feeling the race won't go as I had previously hoped.

You gotta improve in the 60' then. Take the seat off to get lower and out of the wind. It makes a difference.

The 1441 should hold through this. Im not spraying it. Im trying hard not to anyway. Its just not making the power and I still have not checked compression. It does feel like its losing power the more I ride it.

I sure need him more than he does! I'd have my pants if my bike came up like his did last time. I paid for two tires, and I like them BOTH to be on the ground at all times.

Have a couple beers and I will try to talk you in to a nitrous pass

Then again, if it happens, I will feel bad if it goes boom.

You just gotta GO. That front tire is only there to soften the landing of the front end
