Cory! :)
What's up, man?

Yeah, the new design is well done, the tail section improvement makes it look even mightier. Still not my cup of coffee - as you know ;) - but a huuuge step forward.

*hugs*

Hi, JelloBiafra has written it down exactly they way it is, BUT: As a nOOb I would not practise that on the streets, please do go on a trackday and have an instructor lead you into turn braking maneuvers, it goes haywire a lot faster than you might think, if you are unexperienced. New gear and hospi...

Enjoy the day, I am now officially jealous, but nonetheless happy for the ones who can make it! 8) Bring some nice pix back, so I get off my butt the next ti...

:LoL Yes, we are, sometimes it helps to verbally "let out the moment" and then we hug again, coz we are all riders with gasoline in the bloodlines. ;) Arrived yesterday, still jetlaggin' and today I have lots of little bubbles over my head trying to burst into an awake state of consciousness.

The ones who can read precisely what I wrote are having a clear advantage: ;) "For sport riding style" not in general....plus, I wasn't the one who started with the lifting stuff, so address Jello Biafra who wrote that, not me, mediocre jokes get mediocre answers. :roll: You might have read that I p...

"He" can lift whatever he wants, I am not impressed and the ZX series happens to be my expertise. For sport riding style it is CRAP, it is good for drag races or the German Autobahn. End of story, unless you work on it with perfect aftermarket parts it will remain that way. @Jez: Back to San Francis...

New Design for Hayabusa - finally

Hey, the new 08 Hayabusa has some nice design changes, making it look more like a bike vs. what it looks like so far (*lol*, sorry Cory): http://www.raptorsandrockets.com/images/Suzuki/GSX1300R_Black_r.jpg They will also have a switch for different mappings, finally following the smaller GSXR with t...

In Europe the dealer takes care of the reimbursement issue, why should the customer have to do that? ;) Change at no charge and dealer gets money back from Michelin, the way it should be. I'd love to know how long you will have to wait, till you get your money back. The dealer takes no "hit", this i...

The front tire can dissolve on the surface anyways when temps to high. If you ride a pilot power above 25 degrees Celsius on a racetrack without controlling its temperature when riding hard it gets dangerous anyways. The track surface is way more hot than the air temps, adding the friction and the c...

Jez, nice progression, congrats! To avoid your front wheel from "giving in" and avoid to fall because of your material touching the ground you have to use more hang-off and make sure you put the peg pressure on the outer peg in turns, not the inner one. Plus - you'll be much faster with a clean hang...
