S1000RR On Track

What a freaking hoot! Did not come close to coming close to what the bike would do. But after taking it on the track for 4 different days I can honestly say that it is a hoot to ride and the best bike I have ever ridden!

Agreed the bike is built for the track. Great picture!
I had to get the suspension redone since I am outside average rider weight.
Bottoming and pogoing is scary stuff at high speed.
Went with K-Tech front and rear.

I had Bilt-Rite adjust mine at Summit Point. Seems to be working very well for me. Might just be that I am not riding it hard enough! I am also a big ole boy too...

Just spent 2 days at VIR. Had an awesome time on it there!

Steve,

Thought you were pretty quick on the roads at HM V. On the track on your RR must have been wild.

Nice picture.

John

Yeah it was 98 degrees both days at VIR. Managing the heat was a big challenge.

Shot this video of the guy in the paddock next to me. Only one lap.




Oh and the front straight at 160 mph...

Of all the tracks I've been to, my favorite place to stand is by that tree. Can't get closer anywhere!

So Joe how did you do in the 1/4 mile?

Keep thinking about taking mine to the local drag way for a run or two.

A co-workers brother on his S1000RR at Road America - Fun to watch.
