Riding pics from yesterday

Went for a ride with my 2 buddies in roanoke virginia, over a nice mountain out there. ones got a 600rr and one has an r6. i kept up pretty well considering theyve ridden that mountain many times and that was my first on that one.

i came real close to scraping pegs but as you can see that picture of my i'd like to get some lower pegs, and some new bars to lean forward a bit.

final thoughts: i love my 9er

I like pic #3, that shows both your pals with their left hand on the leg instead of the bars. Damn my wrists hurt. Why is that? Oh yeah, I'm on a race replica I've been there and done that - once road a crotch rocket from Atlanta to Savannah to do a track day at Roebling Road. I thought all kinds of parts were going to seize up, and I don't mean the bike.

The exact reason I dumped my CBR for the 9er.


Those are great shots, thanks for sharing.
