Are you just trying to post pictures of yourself racing??? You should make 5 threads all entitled...I like this pic, and each should contain pictures of yourself racing.

Man I haven't see you in a while. The last time I saw you we were fucking hammered the night before the CLSB track day. It was Ytrap (Shannon), you, me, Ofugit (Ohfugit), Swerve (Mike), who else? Shit I don't know. We were wasted trying to get the carbs back on that EX500. I kept pinching shannons fingers in the butterfly for the carbs. That was a great night. Good memories, good times my friend.

Yeh. I have been out of touch

I spent the last 18 months starting up a company and bringing it to "A" round of funding. Schmoozing investors and the like. Got to find some way to support the habit you know. That was a great night and one of my best Blackhawk memories Ofugit and I still laugh about it when I catch up with him (rarely lately though). I hope to get out more next season now that the heavy lifting is over. I picked up that little VFR400 NC30 to wail the corners on. Jim at 4&6 hasit making sure it is safe to ride and tweaking the suspension on it. It is going on a serious diet. My DYmags for it should be here for XMAS LOL

Been dere done dat dis dere and de udder ting. OH and whatnot

It is a jap spec version. I already packed away the special plastic bodywork. I am looking at this for race bodywork they have an RC211V setup for the bike.
http://tyga-performance.com/site/ind...36040a82a982c1
I got their rearsets but I am getting clip-ons and replacement bars from a guy in the UK. Jim will be doing a 520 conversion and putting a Penske on the rear. The rest of the stuff like headlights and such are also coming off. The thing is the size of an RS250 and on my minor round the block cruise felt like it was made to corner LOL.
I already have a collector 70's triump to baby so this thing is going to be ridden. I have steadiloy progressed on the track starting out on a 1000 learning more on a 600 and now with the 400 I hpoe to stop being a pussy in the corners LOL
