Obviously steering weight and just general 'pull up at the lights' is all different but the biggest difference I felt when changing from the tard to my gsxr was when you come barreling into a turn and you're off the gas potentially downshifting 2-3 gears just how much weight you're carrying on a larger bike. The momentum pulling you always got me. A few 'oh sh*t' moments thinking im going to run out of space.. The tard, brake late? no drama.. Brake absolutely fkn sh*t scared folding the front late? No drama.

That red thing of yours would sound pretty glorious on song though..

sure does, has been mistaken for a 748 by riders sitting at the top of our favorite range much to their surprise when I came around the last corner on a sports tourer :aaggl:

very deep, loud sound from the straight through mufflers

I'm still coming to terms with this fact

 

did ride up the Gilles hwy last saturday with the wrong crew

was supposed to meet up with the lads at a servo and go from there

but I was on the wrong side of the servo  

thought it was strange I didnt know anyone, just thought that the regulars mustn't have made it

when we took off up the range I was about 3rd from the front of the pack out of about 12 or so riders

ended up being a bit of a mobile chicane and got past by about 5 guys

did have the front end "fold" a couple of times trying to stay with them, but that was due to me and too much input on the bars rather than pushing the tire too much

the only time I caught them was when the road turned wet and they all slowed up 

 

turns out they are called the "gravel grinders" by the guys I've ben riding with for the past few months

because apparently someone is nearly always getting an ambo ride home

 

I'll make sure I'm with the slower group next weekend :yes:

4 piston brembo finally on! This is a proper bitsa setup with mc22 cbr250 wheel, lathe turned wheel spacers, laser cut disc adaptor. The caliper bracket was listed for an rm250 but it appears the drz shares the same lower leg and a new caliper from Gawanlochs. Huge amount of stopping power and great feedback at the lever. Bike could do with a few more ponies though. 7bbbf0a2d8cb073a723946a2b0779826.jpg142f4974eb675637be498411403c21c5.jpg
