    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?

    Yep, Hoblick did the seals on my FJR a while back, no issues, ready for me when I got there, good work, fair price etc.

    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.

    I fit a 300 on my Daytona. Cant turn for shit, but it sure looks good at bike night.

    Speaking of the evos, I used them for the first time yesterday and loved them. Initially had the front a couple lbs too high on pressure, but otherwise felt great. I'm looking forward to seeing how they do after a few more days.

    It's been flashed, tuned, pipe and filter. Makes ~185 at the wheel.

    Perfect day. Met @TMC Customs, I think we have a new OMRL rider. We'll see if he shows for the next round at G&J on July 27/28th. Its free to preregister... Aside from just beautiful weather and hanging with some friends being not at work, I made it into the 1:45s today. That's ~2 seconds faster than where I was last year. I can see dropping another couple next time out. Waiting on @DerekClouser's data acquisition and analytics to see where I'm the biggest weenie. Only one oh-shit moment coming into turn 1 a little hot, took a humble ride in the grass, through the sand pit, through the grass again, and square into a haybale where the bike stood upright until the end of the session. Perfect day.

    Won't be needing a garage, but myself and a few buddies from here @what, @DerekClouser, and @kbrok will be there hopefully sporting our mini race team flag, if it's still in Derek's toy hauler. Mach Zero Racing, high viz green. Stop on over and say hey. I'll be on my Triumph, Andy's CBR 1K, Kevin on the RSV4 and Derek on his GSXR.

    Gas sooner, brake later. I didn't want to shove Shorty out or run over the guy in front. Kind of a tough spot and once I did get on it, I just didn't have enough juice to keep ahead.

    Our buddy Kevin took this video on Sunday. I just couldn't get around our other buddy Shorty in front of me. Great battle all race long. Last lap starts around 9:55. One of my favorite races I've been in, wish I came out on top, but there's always next time. Huge fun.
