Well said! Sheit! Even ''85 Stock Prod" racers were using race compounds on the street and track. No warmers No one was complaining about the cost.

Dude! You are bragging about doing 22+ track days, your precious M3 tow vehicle and you are whining about $$$$. Live in your car if you have to, to make your 2015 a dedicated track bike. If you were really "all about the track and speed" as you profess to be, stop pinching "pennies!" The money you object to spending is "pennies" for the # of track days you have done and dollars. you have already spent.

My dilemma is what to replace my RR with for the street. I don't like current options, 2017 looks promising for new offerings, so next year I'll have a dedicated track bike. I'm set on new HP4 unless something else tops it.

You missed the sarcasm in my money comment. obviously I'm passionate about bike & track life. I have other $hit going on that makes it hard to get a full proper track setup.

"Leader bike" huh? Somehow, it seems more like you're on a "Follower bike".... LOL

FYI: these days liter bikes are called leader bikes because it's how some people think liter is spelled lol. Get it? The joke is on you
You hear it often during rides or track days from 600 riders. "Man I wish if I had me one of them leader bikes".

Do I look like I give a damn about verifying anything lol

It's simple Mr. Engineer. Look at rider's pace through turn 2 and 5 at NCBike. Tells you all you need to know.

Leader bike has become a piss take from the goons on motoriders universe on facebook. The actual idiots thought it was leader instead of liter. Some real flogs on that page.

Smart individuals do not do social media because if they spoke the truth, they would have to change their names every year because of all the politically incorrect things they say that could get them fired. Businesses have to have a page to stay in the game.
