Hit the track a few times... The streets will lose all of it's appeal...
Going to the track once a month trumps a months worth of riding... You'll see once you get out on the track.
Track riding is a whole different high...
Too much fun!
Oh I know believe me, street has no appeal now! Ass hats trying to race me, women trying to run over me, police fallowing me, women fallowing me... I think they are bike thieves! But than again my ass is pretty juicy in my suit.
If I ride its because I Have to be somewhere, or I hit this twisty road near me that reminds me of a small part of dragon tail.
Also, those exhaust sliders def do their job quite well! I highsided the bike onto the right side and ths Akra was completely saved. Only thing that happened was a dent on the inside against the swingarm, otherwise it looks exactly the same... I will say, for those high/growler type exhausts I'd prob run two sliders... Front and rear of the can. That front where the pipe meets the can is going to be your major impact area if you do lay it down...
Good to hear man, I picked them up because everyone swears by them!
I mean really so they aren't pleasing to the eye they sure as hell save a nice investment! I don't have 700 bones for a new termi and I can't go back to stock now.
I tucked my exhaust down low so I guess I don't worry about that too much, though i do kinda want a high mount. I dunno, maybe I'm more vain that either of you but I'd take a mangled exhaust over a weird ugly exhaust slider. Haha.
I guess I thought you painted that decal thing on your swingarm. And I was referring to you saying you'd paint the woodcraft slider blue (from red).
You must have cash to burn that I don't
I'll take an ugly slider over a destroyed expensive exhaust anyway.
And believe me I am Vain on a level that is rock starish.
Oh the swing arm decals are by bullseye it will match what I have planned for the track trim. Also I was dicking around about the slider I'll just buy a set of blue ones later, and replace both sides. Not for the color factor, but because the stainless steel only comes in the race version I'm not fast enough to ever worry about a slider effecting me in a turn.
Also, start riding the R6 at the track and you'll feel something in your dick, guaranteed.
This bike sucks on the street (seriously). Get an ECU and get out to the track. You'll enjoy a V twin or something easy and torque and fairly comfortable on the street once you cane the shit out of a track-ready R6.
The R6 is a horrible street bike maybe the worst. I have more fun on the scooter on the street.
unless I am riding some where aggressively on the R6 which rarely happens
I just got the ECU flashed and tuned, I'm digging where it is at right now, the only thing that could make the bike better is a new suspension, lighter wheels.... shit I cannot afford right now
this^^ to go even further i dont run frame sliders because i dont like how they look
You guys are ****ing crazy :Laugh Didn't you just crash? I mean maybe If I had crazy cash for a carbon fiber body I wouldn't run sliders, but since I don't I'll stick my my ugly safety equipment.
