    You might notice I'm not riding a Triumph in these pictures. Gingerly riding a less than 100 mile old GSXR1000. Weird to still be accelerating past the kink. Obviously lots of fun to have that much power available (65 more wheel HP on the same dyno). Thing revs real quick and handles pretty well. It's set up for a bigger rider so it was stiff. Lot more work on my wrists, guess I need to think about how I brace myself more. Didn't want to push it, I can see how with a little more time it would be an absolute monster. Still love the Daytona, but damn!

    2010 Street Triple R - $4,000

    Somebody buy this bike. Shes real clean, no issues, and frankly, as Pauly aluded to, a bargain.

    Yep, I'll be there this year. I think @what and I are getting a camp spot. I'm bringing a trailer with pit bikes and doing another test run for our Watkins Glen trip with the new tow vehicle.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Remember the little drive she took in the new wagon? Sport+ down the on ramp!! Get on it! haha At least she has a dirt bike to learn a little how they handle so if she ever decides to get an ADV or street bike it'll come easier. Can't find it now, but Katie and I saw a stand up comedian tell a joke about at the minimum teaching your daughter enough about mechanical things to not be impressed by a guy with a V6 Mustang. The fact that she rides on a CBR1000 pretty regularly should take of that! Nice work my friend.

    She's a beast! When is she getting her own bike?

    Crash Investigation

    Oh man! It was good to meet you, real sorry to hear about the injury. No need to beat the "reason for the crash" horse to death. Heal up soon and we'll see you out there again.
