Buddy of mine just picked up this little beauty a couple weeks ago. Thus the reason the Ape must go :smt023

Lets just say I'm active in the market for something different. Yes, looking for a dedicated track day bike. I've got enough street stuff and to be honest, I ride the Motards 90% of the time on the roads anyhow. Still keeping the rz's though :smt023 :smt023

T, my buddys 98 Tz is very, very nice. Some really trick kit parts on there including the CF self supporting seat unit. I've NEVER seen one of those on a tz.

Little vid of the rs cold start and idle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEVNxJ8hdB4

Pete, you've got to stop spending so much on the bikes and buy a new pair of jeans.

:smt023 Definitely not the bike I would want to see sliding away from me through the runoff and into the air fence. The bank account would sound like a slot machine paying out... Lol

Those thing with good rubber stick like $h!t to a blanket. Chances of sliding it down the track are much slimmer than any street shod bike...unless you encounter rain while on your slicks.

Until some retarded squid on his 2015 r6 that thinks he's "The Doctor" doesn't hold his line and takes out your front in T1 :smt003

Simple solution, race, don't ride with squids. The F2 class needs to come back.

Your choice! The things you have to do to have fun.

I'm drooling all over my keyboard looking at that TZ.

I rather wear tattered jeans and ride than new ones sitting in front of the idiot box.

And the idiots are why I cannot do track days. I get yelled at for sliding,wheelies coming out of slow corners and pushing toads out of the way. My brain cannot differentiate between track day and race day. Hell I got yelled at when racing for the same shit.

On September some guy with a new KTM RC390 is supposed to show me how slow and outdated my RZ is at Summit Point Shenandoah circuit. I will get banned for life on that one.....................if he shows. It is the internet after all.

I need to drop some tonnage to fit into the leathers too. :smt004
