    New bike...

    I bit the bullet and decided to get my feet wet in the middleweight brackets. I have no idea what I am doing, no idea what gearing I should be running, no idea where my shift or brake points are, no idea how to start on an I4, and I will be running the 20 lap classic as my first race...what could possibly go wrong? :-p





    Just a few things left to do like some safety wiring, new sneakers and then some suspension tuning. Everything else is pretty much ready to go.

    the learning curve wont be too bad. youve got the advantage that you know how to carry cornerspeed from the SV. just gonna have to move your braking markers back a little from the extra speed and you wont be able to ham fist the throttle like on the SV

    And from what you were saying yesterday in the tech garage, it was good timing on the new bike.
