Nice bike. If I ever get serious about track days, I was thinking about picking one of these up. I'd be interested to see how you like it.

I've ridden one before and I loved it! Feels like it leans over forever. I guarantee I'll be faster at blackhawk on this thing and I'm pretty sure with some practice I'll be able to match my autobahn times

JRS I remember passing a few 600's

This one was actually picked up in des moines ia and I didn't even go! Luckily the guy was only going to be there for a day and I just happened to be working that day. Michelle is so awesome she drove out and picked it up with another buddy of mine

Damn dude!..that's awesome. How come all the women I date seem to do more complaining about how much I ride and not enough going and picking up bikes for me?!

Oh yeah, cool bike too! Are you planning to put an upper and lower on...or just ride naked?

Went with the Second Gen huh... Are you racing at Autobahn or Blackhawk this year? I have body work and a fairing bracket for you. You mite have to make a couple mounting brackets, but it won't be hard to do. The body work is in great shape and the fairing bracket is brand new.

I'm probably not going to race at all this year (it'd be a waste of $$ wouldnt it?) but next year I'm going to try and hit everything in the midwest
