My last mod before the end of the 2011 Season was the Termignoni GP slip on. To some it was the holy grail, A piece of the glory days of Rossi Yamaha to others an exhaust of a bygone era. For me it was a sweet piece to a puzzle I planned on finishing also the price was right!
Loved the look and the sound in idle with the stock headers, but without a full system it is barley noticeable and the loss of low end power is a wee bit disheartening.
As you can see the Tech spec's are being ripped to bits, I noticed as I wear leathers every ride & my body position was more aggressive I began destroying the tank grips. But tec spec was cool and sent me a new set free of charge with a key chain.
Spring 2012 the hunt for a track
My season started off with me pretty much gun hoe to hit NJMP with friends I hate being alone
. I had reached the point were I was at the limit of what I could learn with street riding. Within reason.
Unfortunately I had a GF at the time & I was pissing away money...
To add insult to injury my Wasten Designs turn signals ate it hard one morning. But the owner was awesome and set me a new set! free of charge now that is good business!
After another failed relationship I.E I was ditched for someone else.... wish I knew it was coming I'd have spent more money on the bike! This wouldn't have happened if I knew of The D.E.N.N.I.S System sooner!!
Now newly single I had some money again, it was time to..."treat yourself 2011"
I picked up a set of Dunlop Q2's from Ridersdiscount Fantastic tire! Heats up well, turns in like a dream I still haven't pushed these to their limit I'm still not 100% sure where the edge on these tires are.
I knew where the edge was on the stock tires, I had gone over a few times
Hunter S. Thompson would be proud of me. Had he not blown his brains out.
I could only imagine what he would say if he witnessed me crash. "My boy that was thee finest crash I've ever seen! The way you pissed yourself in mid flight it was sheer poetry.
I saved enough money for a trip to NJMP june 27 & 28 with Lee, Cheif, shadows & the gang, but unfortunately the mustangs brake lines shit the bed.
and renting a van was around 200 dollars or more in and of it's self...
I missed out on NJMP. It was a sad day.
So my days were spent cannon carving with local track guys I knew, but this began to feel unsafe for me, due to people dying on the very road we would hit almost weekly.
Later in the summer season a track was revealed to be opening in my area an hour away. NYsafety track A game changer! Now instead of planing for maybe one or two track days for 2013 I could go monthly! At the very least
(More chances to kill myself GENIUS sign me up!
This lit a fire under my ass.
