All these suit sponsorships... I guess you can give out tons of free suits when you're paying $200 and selling them for $1500...
That was in 2011.
Last year I was sponsored by dainese.
This year who knows. Maybe dainese. Maybe nobody..

I can't tell what it looks like while I'm riding it. The only bike I feel that way about is the R1, for some reason looking down from the driver's seat the front cowling looks/feel square'ish to me and it makes it feel like it won't turn......even though there's other reasons why it won't turn (at least not in stock trim )

I think it's hideous

The rims look cool though.

Bored out RC8R motor, rumored to be in the 180-200hp range. Sounds mighty dangerous

Just watched Moto3 from Aragon. One of the best races I've ever watched.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Any interest in Cornerspin school this year? I thought I would ask here before picking a date and making a thread.

Quote:
Registration Fee: 1.0 = $525.00 / 1.5 = $425.00
(Military and Friend Discounts available)
Included with registration: Use of our bikes, lunches, water bottle, water/Gatorade, Red Bull, t-shirt, photos.
Quote:
Located in the heart of racing, Cornerspin is 1 hour from Charlotte, 20 minutes from Lowes Motor Speedway and 30 minutes from Greensboro. Our facility is located in central North Carolina near the town of Spencer, North Carolina, less than one mile from Interstate 85 (Exit 81). There are many North Carolina attractions in the immediate area. Major airports are: Charlotte Douglas International (1 hour away) and Greensboro (30 minutes away). Another way to look at it: the Cornerspin training facility is conveniently located halfway between the metropolitan areas of Atlanta and Washington D.C.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

If you ask me, the ease of adjustibility of the Ohlins puts it on top. You're not gonna feel the difference between their performance for a while, Bart.

Whatever you find used for a good price over the offseason. At intermediate track day pace anything of decent quality properly set up is going to work more than adequately.

You'll find guys going 10x as fast as you on Ohlins/Penske/JRi.......take your pick

Troof.
I ran a penske double for a long time. Just got where there was not enough adjuatability so I went to ohlins 46 triple. Then I tried the jri and well...

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I still run a stock shock on my bike, re-valved, and heavier spring, but it is the stock shock.
