Talking we were singing

ok I had just riden 3 hrs nth of sydney on my weekly commute home, all dead boring slab stuff sitting on 120\140 kph
and I am about 50 min from home.
I come to the ONLY two crns to speak about and there's not a car in sight.

So I've drop her back a kog and screwed the throtel grip round and procced to set my self up for the 1st crn, it is slightly of cambered with a slight rise at the apex but a good 150+ crn on a good day and today is the day!! lined up the where I want to be so as to be set up for last crn and droped her into the 1st crn
just as i hit the apex I feel the centre stand lossing metel and my foot pegs are on the ground, keeping the gas wound on we pull out of it with about 2secound straight before the left hander, I've sighted my line and kept powering on, this one is not as tight or off cambered so you can realy driver throught it.

driven throught the apex and drop into 6th as I'm straightening up
I have a chance to listen to the exhaust note and the staintune is sounding very..............sweet , glancing down at the speedo where pulling 200kph and the tacho is just over 6,000 and the RT is running shit hot.........shit I want more days like this just under a hour from a beer, the sun on my backand the staintune is singing plus pulling 200k's out of a crn ......yeah baby :smiles6

Wicked I can't carry a tune, but I love to sing

Howdy Rod,

The center stand on my GS, is much lighter now, then when it was new. Must be because I was "singing" while going around them corners.:): Now that I have lowered my foot pegs, I have to be content feeling them rise up as I "sing", life is good, ride on!
