    nice. i need to get me a set of leather pants. i just haven't invested all the money it takes into getting track equipment. it isnt' sunny enough here and there aren't many track days.

    bike looks good out there.

    Lucky me, I invested all the money in leathers, race tires, trailer, bike stands, tire warmers, etc. just before I lost my job...lol

    These pics are from 3/29, it was a pretty awesome day. I didn't wreck, but I ran off the track 6 times :p

    I hate frame sliders. I'm worried that if I go down hard the slider will dig into the dirt and break my frame/motor mount. I'd rather just have rashed plastics.

    Actually, that was my first official trackday. It was freaking awesome.

    Yes, actually...I had a buncha people ask me what year the 636 came in white, and if it was a limited edition. Yup, it's a very, very limited edition. :D

    I didn't, but my buddy Jared did a couplea laps on it during lunch.

    haha, thats baller? they aren't too expensive. i have stayed away from them because i have heard you get a lot of wind resistance with them. i think this summer if the gf rides a lot, i will buy a pair so we can talk to each other.

    I would have to say that verbal instuction on how to first ride a bike is impossible...

    I want a bike now.

    I do this every year I've been here in europe, every summer I start lusting again. I think if the job situation levels out, I'm going to try to get the license. (It's incredibly tough here.)
