    Thanks. Yeah, they don't care what the bike actually is they just see 1000cc and are like o guess we better charge him more. Story of my life. I bought my R1 when I was 18 and they wanted like $2600 a year for insurance.

    Thanks Mark. PS I have your rearsets. If you email me your address again I will send those out.

    Jennings should be a blast. Weather is looking perfect.

    I don't see that knee on the ground

    finished installing a new exhaust on the ninja1k. amazed at how not loud it is. all my 600class bikes turned into noisy rides with aftermarket exhausts but I don't notice a difference from stock to piped on this one. looks alone were worth it tho....still getting used to actually having a usable torque band below 10krpm's. kind of nice for around town riding..

    Yeah my knee doesn't usually hit the ground. Especially in right turns. I am working on body position and looking through the turns. Hopefully the weather will cooperate in a couple weeks when I head back to VIR.

    Sand I haven't seen any pics of your new bike. What is happening?

    photobucket is such a pita to host to anymore I have gotten lazy. I'll put something up today as it was actually nice enough to ride

    only downside is it's warm in the warehouse and I street-ride in steel toed over the calf leather boots. forgot my work shoes..

    I understand photobucket being a PITA. That sucks. I hate when I would forget to bring my work shoes or anything other then my boots.

    Yeah I am working on it. I am working on getting my upper body outside the windscreen area.

    I used to ride with NESBA until they went under and then bought out and now it is N2 Trackdays. Another trackday org was started at the same time Performance Riding Experience (PRE) by John Allen who used to be the Southeast director for NESBA. Great CR's and great people. We ride pretty much with them only. I have already scheduled some one on one time with some CR's at the end of this month.

    the new ride...
    added dual pipes and undertail. have the Kleen-air block off plates to install to get rid of the backfiring and probably a puig black screen and done. it's amazing both the riding posture and the low end torque of the 1k vs the 600's. powerband is much better for commuting/street riding. def. doesn't feel like it wants to lean over as easy as the '09 zx6 I had was. that bike was a corner carver. the front suspension feels somewhat sloppy in this 1kninja and I think some more aggressive rubber would make a world of difference, but it's a commuter now.



    the gf's ride. 250 ninjette with a pipe. it sounds like a mad bee when you get on it. she def. needs a 600-650.
