Picking up some different body work and seat to eliminate some of the worry of it hitting the ground and not have my rear end stuck in the big touring style comfy seat.

See you the 25th terra?

I wanted an 848 ever since I saw them. I paid my 07 GSXR off and this one popped up with 800 miles on it and my GSXR kept having issues. I couldnt resist the price and the good equity I had in my bike so it just happened. Maybe not the smartest move if I wanted to do track days, but I will work that out once I decide to start picking up the pace.

Thanks for the comments/compliments.

Nice video - I was there that day in Novice also. Was hoping to see me on there. Awesome sounding bike.

Anyone know if there are pics anywhere from that day?

Sorry I missed you this last weekend... was out of commission, but I'm sure you'll be out next season, right?!

I have a very odd job that has me coming and going for long periods of time.

I will be on the track somewhere. My next big decision is continue riding the bike I love or buying a track only bike.

If I am here though you will see me for sure. ACC and Putnam are the closest tracks to me so that is where I will be when time and money allows.

Mouse and another CR recommended for me to go to "I" if I feel comfortable for next go round which made my day =)

There was a fotog there that weekend, but I think they are/were exclusive to autobahn and dont post the pics on the internet for sale. They had a big truck there to go look at the pics if you wanted them...................anyone know the name contact info for them? I ordered a disk for the first time in years so I could get a pic with my wheels off of the ground at the transition-never got it and its been a few weeks.........................
