Went to Harris Hill yesterday and got see something cool...

I had a great time yesterday. It was HOT, But it was hoot following the guy around on one of these:
desmosedici

The exhaust note was intoxicating. I followed him for a few laps just to listen. 8) Needless to say I had a tough time passing him on the straights. But when I passed him on the brakes, I made for sure it was CLEAN. I wanted no part in causing the guy on the $75k bike to crash. :shock:

There was one at TWS (Texas World Speedway) a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say it sounded awesome down the front straight.

I went by one on a two lane country road a few months ago.
The exhaust note sounded . . .
I regret not turning around to chase him down on some turns.
I wanted to see that thing up close!

I got to ride the one at H2R yesterday.
The motor is UNREAL, but those B-Stone tires aren't too good on a racetrack.
We are going to put on a 17" rear so some Michelin race tires will go on it.
Also the stock suspension setup is WAY off.
It will be a beast soon enough though.

Well . I should have introduced myself. What was the other bike you were riding?

OK. Moira mentioned that you would be able to help me if I needed some suspension tweaking. I followed you several times. You carry some impressive corner speed on those 250s. Next time I'll say hellow. I was on the 600rr (the color of a tennis ball)
