Talking And the fun begins.........

I bought Vcooks 2001 Gsxr600, and the fun winter project of turning it into a track bike begins....
Ordered my shock
and sent my forks off to get the works done!!!!

now if i could just figure out a cool/simple teamgofast paint scheme id be rockin!!

any ideas????

stay tuned for pics of the progress, I plan to do a "how to" right up of the work load!!

Congrats! It'll be cool to see the step by step of work you perform. While you're working on the bike, you might want to schedule in an exorcism or two.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Ive seen a yellow Hummer H2 in my area that has GO FAST 1 in a huge banner angled up the side of the truck. I could try and get a picture of it. Any idea who this is? Is he stealing off of you or vice versa?? haha

Congrats, Jim. Come up with a cool paint scheme. I'm getting sharkskinz for the 10R and I'll get a paint job to match yours... with green and black as the colors of course.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

RAcing colors

My 2 cents I think you should rock the Old Camel color scheme

Purple/ Yellow / hint of neon green..

With some badd ass stickers !!!

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Jim I think you should go with the new EMR paint scheme.

It's Red, White, and Black with just a dash of Mopar's ex girlfriend on the seat.
