Bought this bike October 2010 with 14,995 miles on the clock. It was originally blue, my favorite color. Alas, I rear ended a SUV on the way to work November of that year. Luckily the bike was in decent condition, and I didn't have any broken bones or anything, just some minor lung collapse and scrapes and bruises. Unbelievably, insurance kept my bike as clean titled, even though the repair bill from the shop came up to $7300!! :eek5

After half of year of tension within my family of whether I should ride or not, I said to hell with it and started to repair it. Scored a mint set of OEM wheels, fairings, and tank and fixed it back to near mint condition. After that, the mod bug bit hard and I started buying parts, parts, and more parts. At this point, I'm pretty much done with upgrading. I went to my first trackday April 2012 and fell in love with it. Unfortunately I was only able to go to three trackdays last year, but this year already signed up 5. I would love to keep this bike a track bike, but my dad is started riding so currently she's doing double duty so I can ride with my dad on the street.

TL;DR :cheers
