Not sure what your budget is, but a beefier front end (gsxr) tends to be a popular thing to do... Nice looking bike! :)

How do you ride it most often? (Commute, twisties, etc.)
How do you enjoy riding it the most?

Just learning on the twisties honestly.... Get nervous when I have it over, but from what I've heard thy are great on curves so I gotta man up. But I think that's the idea ride it a ton and get inspired, I do have stock gauges coming that I'm going to mount to the triple and move te ignition!

My vote would be for a set of Spiegler SS brake lines.

Another thought....get a set of motoslider spools for the swing arm and a rear stand. This will make it MUCH easier to work on the bike.

no, what you need is training. go take the Lee Parks ARC or the MSF ARC (new course), or a track school.
the best investment in a bike you can make is in rider education. You'll be faster, smoother, and safer than if you had every mod imagineable and were still doing it wrong.

I hate you. :magpie:




I am in the "ride it till the wheels fall" off camp. It is a nice looking bike the way it is. Enjoy riding it for a while, inspiration will strike some night at a bike night or something.

Free all sorts of Johnsonville product... I picked up 15 lbs of bacon the other day for free :)

And I'm not sure what course it is yet, have any suggestions?

If its in Minnesota, just outside of the twin cities, it's probably ZARS, (which I hope to go too once I'm back in the midwest)


And I've had friends brag about free Johnsonville products in the past. Maybe next summer I can snag an internship there as well.

Given your location, Road America offers a Total Control course that is suppose to be phenominal. I would like to do it some day, but we will see. ZARS (Zalusky Advanced Riding School) Also offers a class at Road America every now and then. I have done the ZARS course and was VERY happy with it. Infact, I plan to do the Level 2 course this year. Given your concern over the budget, I think ZARS will be your better bet. I belive they are almost 1/3 of the cost of a Total Control class.

I guess to be fair I should also mention MSF offers courses at Road America as well. Again, I can not comment on how good they are, as I have never been through an advanced course with them.
