Ha! no that's my old seat... which is just the base w/o the padding and leather. I use it to bungee my bag onto my tail, it works real nice! I just taped it to make it black.

Really though look at me..does it look like I need to save any more weight? I weigh like 125 pounds!!

Green tape makes you faster!! (It's actually bodyshop tape, it works the same as the blue painter's tape everyone uses...but it's green!!)

Nope, Pilot Power in the rear and Pilot Power 2CT in the front. They stick pretty well, but certainly aren't race tires.

Thanks, I have always heard the Michellins are tough to beat.

My last track day I ran a regular pilot power up front and a 2CT in the rear. It worked out ok I guess. I wanted the 2CT's front and rear but the dealership didn't have the right size for the front and I couldn't wait for someone to ship it. Tracks are a blast, everyone should do at least one track day just to get a taste of it.

Great pics!.. how fast did you get her going?
The highest indicated speed I saw was in the high 130's (mph) on the front straight, but I wasn't really paying attention to speed since turn 1 comes up pretty quick.

I've had the bike to an indicated high of 178mph on an undisclosed highway!:devious

crashtd:
It was a pleasure meeting you in person! I hope you enjoyed your first day at the Beave, and I hope we can ride it together in the future! I attempted to take a few pictures, but my camera likes to kill batteries very quickly, so I wasn't able to get any... You may want to check TheSBimage.com in a few days to see if they have any pictures of ya if you're interested. The guy takes pretty decent pictures, so it's worth checking out.
