  1. 328 miles? No wonder you were in such a hurry to get home. ?
  2. That is a super nice looking bike. I really dig the noise from those cross plane motors
  3. Well that didn't take long. I'm a little depressed now
  4. I want something along the lines of a sport touring....I think. Maybe adventure touring? Something I can take on trips is as far as I have gotten so far.
  5. My wife is strongly discouraging any more track days. I'm selling my bike and I'm gonna start looking for something a little more trip friendly. Here is a copy of the craigslist ad and the link. I put $2300 on craigslist since everyone always tries to lowball. I would be happy to come off of that for anyone here to avoid the craigslist hassle. https://stlouis.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2007-zx6r/6660550346.html I am the third owner of this bike. It has been passed amoung friends. John was the original owner. He made it about 1500 miles and had a low speed slide. It didn't hurt anything but the plastics and the bar end, but it scared him and he parked it for 3-4 years. Jacob bought it and put all new factory plastics on it. He rode it for about 2500 miles and then had two kids a year apart. Thats when I bought it. The Good -Less than 7,500 miles -Forks rebuilt by Velocity Calibrations in May 2018 -Brakes have just been bled with fresh dot 4 -Brand new chain -Driven TT rearsets -Two brothers exhaust with removable decibel killer -Double bubble style windscreen -Wire mod (switches American bikes to the Euro mapping adding HP above 13,000rpm) -Plenty of tread left on Michelin pp3 -Clean title in my name The Bad -I wrecked it. All the plastics are really rough. They are completely solid however. I put them together with epoxy and zip ties. It is super ugly but completely functional. -Tank is dented. Hole in tank was repaired with a welder. -Small dent in the frame from handlebar. Does not appear to affect anything functionally -Tire date code says they are about 5 years old This is the perfect bike for a track guy, stunter, or beginner (you are going to drop it anyway). The bike is in perfect mechanical shape. You could buy some ebay fairings and a tank cover for less than $800 and it would look as good as it runs. I would keep it, but after this last wreck my wife is making it not worth it.
  6. I'm out. I will most likely show up and get some tires though.
  7. There are different types of super corsa from what I gather. The sp is more street/track and the sc are basically track only. I was looking at the sp. The manufacturers seem to purposely make worthless descriptions of their tires. I read their touring tires and they say to race professionally with them and then the slicks say if you use anything else you will die. All from the same manufacturer
  8. I think I am on the same page as you are. I would appreciate the extra margin for error that a set of sticky tires could give me. I definitely don't want a slick, because I am going to be using the tires for back roads. I have heard people say that Rosso Corsa are the same as the SC except for the middle third is a tad harder for mileage. If I was going to go to a SC type tire, I am curious if I would like another brand better. Dunlop has a reputation for being slightly harder (at least from different forum folklore I have read) than the SC, but I really don't think I will even scratch the surface of either tire if I am honest about my ability. I guess I would still be looking at Q3+ vs Q4. I've also heard people rave about BattleAxe S20. I guess if I opt for a stickier tire, I won't really know if I could have gotten marginally better.
  9. I figured I would ressurect this thread. My tires are old and I'm making an attempt to blame them for my poor riding and resulting bike damage. I am a bit torn. I notice a lot of track guys are running the supercorsas. I feel like the rosso corsas might be a better choice for someone as slow as I am, but I just don't have any real world experience with riding different tires at the limit on the same bike. I currently run PP3 and would like something a little more track oriented. I'm not sold on pirelli. I just haven't really looked at hypersport tires and I'm not real familiar so I am looking for some knowledge.

    It’s back baby! It’s so ugly that I actually think it’s cool.

    The bike will be ready this week. The wife may take longer. I knew she would not take the crash well.
  12. That looks legit from my unskilled eye except the pavement on the far outside of dead bear doesn’t inspire confidence. I usually botch that turn and start wide and end up towards the inside at the real apex. If I do get it right, I feel better towards the middle of the pavement at the apex. From memory it seems like it’s got more negative camber on the far outside
