Yeah, I think I'll hold on to the bike, not that 1,500 isn't a good deal though. Signals and mirrors were removed for the track, I just havent really messed with the bike much since the trackday. The rear brake lever got ground down to about half of what it had and the front brake lever got the tip ground down just a little (brand new pazzo's :-( No frame sliders at all so it did come out good I guess.
hey thats my bold head in the backround on pic 1.. does anyone know where to by rogain for hair reproduction???..i agree its a kawasucky but damn it can put any tiller to shame.:rant uke :banghead :kicknuts :fire :slaptlr :grrr :scared mg :bash :uhoh :O
Haha, I would'nt take it that far ash. I think the bikes are close your just not getting the jump on my like I do you most of the time. Now, in the corners, if I could keep it on the the tires and on the track I'd definately eat you up, but a pictures worth a thousand words I guess. YOU NEED TIRES BRO, then you can push harder in the corners.
If your gonna shave your head, then why do you need rogain for the semi bald spots? :O
You CAN hang with the 636's. Right tires and the right riders and the TLR and the 636 are a hell of a match. Light weight of the 636 will win on the corner entry, tractible power of the twin will win the exit and both are about dead even down the straight.
Heck, your damage is almost not worth fixing. If you'd crashed on the street it'd be one thing, but that's TRACK DAMAGE! Woohoo!
That's like the difference between getting a scar falling down the stairs and getting a scar in a knife fight.
Haha, I like your outlook on that one. I have to fix it, it's my baby and she's brand new I cant just leave her like that. I'm just going to get a dedicated track bike and leave the 636 for the streets. Oh, and this was my first crash and I'm proud to say that for the most part I already have my confidence back, I just really want new tires.
