Some bastard gave me "-cred" for the above post, well fuck you!

But to appease you whiny arse, I've changed my post from "a POS Guzzi" to "my POS Guzzi".

I hope you are no longer offended.

Calm down petal, it will be ok Embarassed Sometimes when using a phone or tablet fingers can touch things without you realising.
A pic of my sport bike of choice for 4 track days back to back. Awesome fun

In that case I'll be watching your fingers carefully, next time you come for a sleepover.

And I will tell Abdul.


Oh, if you call me Petal one more time, I'll beat you with a soggy Sao. Twisted Evil

See the vertical green bar, top right hand corner of your last post, I gave you the tick of approval for being even dummerer than me (that makes me feel good).

Also, other people must think you're ok Sid, on the left side in your stats (under "Posts : 957") you got ghetto cred of 35.

cheers

I took the Red GRiSO because the Green one is still in the assembly phase of a rear end modification.
I had a few sessions on other bikes this time,
An older carburetted  ZXR 750 Kawasaki that felt like it had a definate power band above 7000 rpm, a lot of fun.
A 2001 GSXR 1000 of about 150 hp, a solid feel to this one with a ton of power.
2010 Yamaha R1, 180 hp .......... Shocked Fark, Very planted on the track, I could actually steer this one exactly where I wanted it to go,
2016  Yamaha R1 M spec with active ohlins suspension........  Shocked Shocked Double Fark, Power that I couldn't use, I suspect it was dialled up for Track or race mode as it had a very wooden feel to the front end, no feel or feed back at all.
All great fun  cheers

I also have a Honda 2004 RC 51.  Two completely different riding experiences.  When I want to go WFO, I ride the Honda, but when I want to ride at a moderate to quick pace, I go with the more comfortable and capable GRiSO.    I love both and enjoy the difference in power delivery.

I also have a pristine 2004 Honda RC 51 in my garage.   While I enjoy the ride and handling of the GRiSO,  its the V twin Honda that always puts a smile on my face.   Smooth as butter and revs to the moon in a rocket ship fashion.    But, at 62 y/o I can only ride it for so long.  That said, I am planning another trip this fall to the Dragons tail with the Honda because I have a large magnetic tank bag that will hold my stuff.  If riding Deals Gap does not make your pecker hard, then nothing will.  Not even a naked picture of Hillary. scratch [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The only time to ride Deals gap is in the middle of the week. The weekends are full of idiots who think they are Rossi and are a danger to everyone. I like 28 to Stecoah better.

To answer you question, no I don't own a sports bike anymore, I wish I could afford two bikes.

I have yet to take my GRiSO (bought December 2017) to the mountains, but that will change the next two weekend in a row.

Moonshiner, the Snake, Devil's Triangle are all more fun, and less populated than the ToD.
Went down there in 2015 on my Norge and rode Devil's Triangle without seeing another vehicle.

Deals Gap is OK, but I prefer the Cherahola Skyway (143/165) and Fontana Dam Ride(28, which goes forever SEast into NC). Definately NOT a weekend ride, buncha maroons out on most weekends during the riding season. I'll be doing trip #29 his summer.....
