clowning around




Sooo what's everybodies plans for the off season? I'm hoping to put some fresh body work on, something a bit more subtle I think. Other than that just refreshing everything I think.

Major difference tween Sportbikes and SuMos - Wheelies are not considered clowning yet encouraged

Tires, refreshing the Ohlins (shock/forks), and just saving pennies for more track time in 2013.

I used the excuse that it was the bike holding me back so I bought a daytona sportbike.... well I guess it wasn't the bike afterall cause I still didn't win

Did go a second faster in the very next race weekend but still, wasn't able to get a win, just some 2nds

PS: It's bullshit that I was able to lay down a 13 and a whole lot of 14's and wasn't able to get an amature win at BHF, stupid fast mofos rocking yellow plates

All I plan to do is save for tires and track time. I need to get way more track time next year.
I never made it out to blackhawk this year and haven't been there since I messed up my bike pretty good trying to push street tires. My goal for next year is to get that little battered SV under the 1:20 mark, this time with real tires.

Motor is out. New head gasket for the gixxer, new seals all around, suspension refresh, then I need to find a darn 750 motor. If the opportunity presents itself sell the sixxer and move onto a liter bike. 300lbs on a 105whp bike is no bueno after a while. I want to be lazier as I get older :lol:

Easy fix, throw a 750 motor in that Giggy and get down!!

I have no experience going from a GSXR to an R6 but is the diff. really that much??

I went from my stock suspension 08 R6v with all bolt ons (rearsets, exh, clip ons, perf. mods etc.) to a track only fully set up with Ohlins front and rear R6S and I can say that I was faster on that bike. Suspension felt l great and the lighter R6s is easy to man handle. Once I got comfortable with it, I was going faster than I did last year. Sux I only went out 3 times this year so I can't say I was FULLY comfortable but none the less, it felt awesome!! I do miss my 08 tho.. that thing looked fly..lol.. I did keep my gold wheels which are on the track bike now though..hehe

The R6's are pretty good out of the box, and a lot of people run them so it's easy to get setup advice etc. I know I've been battling them all year and when you look at the points for amature middle weights it's R6, R6, R6, R6, ZX6R, R6, R6, so they must be doing something right.

For example:

Not yet. Still waiting to sell my GSXR. I want one with more goodies too, so not sure if that's the one for me.

Where is Bart?? He rides the shit out of his GSXR. Lol. I bet he will disagree. Me, I am partial to Yamaha, just didn't know the difference was that much.

I was kidding about the bike instantly making me faster. I just want an R6 with suspension nice brakes and a quickshifter. I have a motorcycle ADD problem, and I'm bored with the gixxer.
