hmm track seems a little bit too much for the skill level, yes she will get run over in the track by most.

Rebel, ok ill bite so who is renting a rebel and how much? maybe shell go for it maybe not, but its worth a try.

We have an 07 Rebel that we're considering letting go of. It just sits right now.

EDIT: She has upgraded to a 599.

They have little stuff there too, racer?
If you don't mind, what'd they charge for the 'wing?

EDIT: Nice link, racer.

Nice story.
I've spent some pretty serious miles piloting a 'wing. You're right, they're mucho comfortable and have ample power. I didn't like the windscreen, too (I'm 6'5"). I really want a K1200LT bimmer, though. Same power, 100 lbs lighter, 1 inch shorter wheelbase (read: twisty ready).


Back to your regularly scheduled programming.
