Yes Sir, had it dyno's @ CycleWerkz in Fort Worth.

It put down 120whp and 70tq

Very Fast bike.........I want a similar bike for the track cause I do not want to drop this one.

Not sure how to post pics from the hard drive (not internet), so you are stuck with text:

My ride is a Tornado Red '08 Triumph 1050 Sprint ST. It just turned 2 years old, with ~20k miles now on the odo. I had hoped to take it to Colorado this week and follow the US Pro Cycling Challenge, but family stuff intervened. Grrrr.

This is my daily driver, as the WRX is typically used on rainy days- which we no longer have in this part of Texas.

Our local club will be there if anyone else wants to go.

http://bbs.tsba.org/showthread.php?t=48695

35$ donation to ride (per bike)

I figure we can meet up at ChickFila near the mall, if you plan on riding in a group, then arrive at the mall together, you will be lined up based on when you arrive, and theres no moving around after that. Gas up before arriving. Im gonna shoot for 8:15 am at ChickFila, head to mall around 8:45, registration closes at 9:45, KSU at 10am sharp.


Chickfila
2255 E Grapevine Mills Cir
Grapevine, TX 76051

Also I ask if you are going to ride with us we would like responsible riders only. Wear your gear (helmet, jacket, gloves, boots) No wheelie riders or squids. I don't I will have that problem here.

Hope to see you there!

Anyone else get stuck on their bike last night in that freak thunderstorm that came through Dallas. I have never been wetter in my life (that's what she said) then when I finally got home.

Stupid balding front tire...

I got you beat. I have put 1,200 miles on my SR50 since I got it in July.

Thinking of a injection kit for it to bump the HP up to 15 or so.

It reinforced in me that I need to get off my lazy ass and just install the new tire I have sitting in my garage.

Man it is all about the rubber that is for sure. Never knew until you go to a track day and it rains and guys are still dipping in close to 100mph.

lol, nice. yeah, now that it isn't a billion degrees outside, I'm going to try commuting on the bike once or twice a week in addition to it being my exclusive weekend vehicle.

while the lack of rain has sucked for trees and gardens, it's made for some good rides!

Yeah I ride the scooter everyday just about. Only a 8 mile commute but it adds up.
$4 will get me over 100 miles.

If it would do 85mph I would have a **** ton more miles on it.

thread is dead.... everyone I know is selling or buying bikes right now.

Got the GSXR600 for the track only.


Hopefully I get it all painted here in the next 2 weeks.

Then I bought the wife a 64' vintage 2 stroke Vespa.


I thought it was just a little toy but this thing will book it.

The weather has been so nice lately that I've had the bike back out of winter storage and out for the past five days. Yesterday and today are perfect for riding.

I went to ride the scooter today and the battery was too low. Had to hook it up to the tender.

If you get a streetbike and some track gear you can hitch a ride with me. My trailer holds 2 bikes, I'll only charge you lunch.

I even know of a nice SV650 with GSXR full fairings and a 1000 front end swap for cheap.
It is track only though.




I think he will take 2k but I didnt tell you that.

Wow, that's a steal. Track only due to the title (or lack thereof)? I'm in the market and wouldn't mind picking up a SV650.
