shiiiiiiit dawg, you know how some people hook their streetbike up to a battery tender when its parked? I just leave warmers on my tires 24/7. You never know when you gots to leave the garage and hit the driveway at race pace. Waiting for tires to warm up? Aint nobody got time for that, yo!!!

Make sense. I've been thinking about cannibalizing the Gixxer track bunny to make the SV1K into a part-time track bike, since I don't do enough track days to justify a dedicated trackster tying up garage space. Then I think about the hassle of swapping between 2 sets of wheels... not difficult of course, but still a lot of work before and after a TD.
