Took it out for about a 1/2 hour this morning and got a little more ballsy,gonna wait 'til I get the suspension dialed in,etc. and take it to a dirt track in Elsinore before I hammer it. :lol:It's only about 10 miles from the house and can ride all day for $30,be a good place to get some practice in.

Think I'm gonna blow off Race Tech and take it to Precision Concepts in Riverside(about 25 miles from the house)for the suspension and just have them go over it from end to end(tune,etc.),have heard they're pretty good with dirt bikes.

And I got to say in all honesty O would not mind taking one out for a rip, but I don't cause I know its going to hurt after,.............got a bud at work that got one of those super motards, (dirt bike with street tires) that's cool but right now it would just be another toy to spend money on that I ain't got, .............at least I got the beast ready for summer, new plugs, tires, wheel bearings, rebuilt the calipers, new brakes, was going to take it up the interstate where the LEOs set up one of those auto speed checker wagons but it's a old one and only has two digits,(99 mph) so I didn't bother, no matter since I got that new fuel system right its been running great, feels better than when it got on the dyno, don't know when I'd get to a dyno now as the guy who's stuff I used retired, he was older than us, and sold his equipment, .................you just make sure you keep the shiny side UP....... :D

 Hey what's with these kids these days? I thought it was just me, but stupid isn't even good enough to describe them. I find so few that are worth my breath on any subject.

Couple of pics of my new toy,thing feels like a bicycle on steroids. :crackup:Fooled around with it yesterday and changed engine oil and filter,trans. fluid,new Uni air filter,lubed chain,etc.(way easier than on the Busa :lol:).Still need to throw a new plug in it and take it into a shop for a valve check,suspension overhaul(springs,fork seals,etc.),new tires,and just a general going over.Thing is a hoot to ride. :rockwoot:

Thanks John Boy.This little bike fascinates the shit out of me for some reason(probably because I've only owned Busas for the last 15 years),gets more attention than the Busa now.

 That Super Duke I bought, is like a giant super motard!
 It feels twitchy light, effortless to ride, and absorbs the road making all roads feel like new pavement!
 Absolutely the most fun bike I've ever rode!
 It's no Busa, but it's worth the money !! Go Check one out Dave

Nope,but my right leg is. :lol:Took it to Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park yesterday and made a few laps around one of the tracks(they have 5 there),killed it and restarted on the first kick.Tried it on a different course and killed it on the 2nd lap(had just watered/graded the surface and got caught up in some big clods in a tight turn),kicked it about a 100 times and ended up pushing it about a 1/4 mile back to the Jeep(thought I was gonna stroke out bro,a lot of work when you're 63/250 lbs.,wearing those big ass heavy boots[caked in mud],and already worn out from those fucking 100 kicks :crackup:).Gonna pull/change the spark plug out today,may as well start there.Usually when it's cold it'll start within 1-6 kicks and when hot have restarted it on 1 kick using the "hot start" lever next to the clutch lever,but not so yesterday(thinking I flooded it,which they say is pretty easy).I would've killed for an electric start yesterday bro,like the guy parked next to me had on his new KTM 450. :punk: :uploaded_shooting: :uploaded_shooting: :uploaded_shooting: :uploaded_shooting: :uploaded_shooting: :uploaded_shooting: :uploaded_shooting:



...and to add insult to injury,after I loaded that bitch up realized I had forgotten to close the damned tailgate so had to unload the bastard again.Ridin' the Busa is way easier. :crackup:
