Thanks! I came up with the concept and my buddy just ran with it

Awesome paint job to go with that awesome helmet too.

Good luck racing next year too, I'm going to be racing in WERA and CCS next season for my first time too. I really would like to deck my beemer out for the track but my funds are limited at the moment as I just purchased a '12 675R race bike that's got it all.

How many days do a pair of slicks last you on your S1000RR? On the 675R a pair of Michelin's only lasted me a weekend (about 12, 20 minute sessions).

Oh yeah, and nice leathers you got there
A few of the upgrades listed were not installed prior to that track day and are sitting in my garage lol. I will make a post with the updated pics of the bike. I have the driven clip ons already again just not installed yet. For now I just have the stock clip ons angled out as much as possible.

Yea im 225 lol so suspension is huuuge. i cannot wait until its all installed and dialed in. I have a picture attached of my ohlins in the box.

It depends on the compound of the tire and what track. i did a amateur race in new mexico on a soft compound pirelli sc1 rear which had life in it after the race day and then i went to t hill and destroooyed it in 2 sessions. The front tire is still going strong which is an sc2.

Good luck to your racing as well and thank you again.

What kind of helmet is that Arai V?
