I think I dropped around $2500 in the first month. To me, that was big. How you liking that X11? Which one did you get? I have the red Kiyonari.

I initially spent a load on gear....Top of the line jacket, helmet, gloves etc...All the few mods on my bike I do have came at a screaming deal ($100 for the pipe, and lots of ebay goodies). Id say at retail Id have a few $1000 in aftermarket but thrifty shopping, less then a couple hundred = )

Yes i know its the ventilation, but i dont notice that much of a difference except the visor on my Rockhard helmet fogs really easy when im not moving fast.

Not at all. Each of my upgrades was purely something I needed to run my first ever trackday. I have not bought one item I did not need....











Now if that was only true...


I think I have at least the same in mods and gear as I do in the orginal bike purchase itself. Wasn't the initial plan by anymeans.
