Hmmm - I think you've been talking about a 600 or 750 for as long as I've know you - time to either, as they say, PUT UP OR SHUT UP or in plain English, pull the fxxxxxin trigger already - you can't take it with you Mr you know what

I am inspired by your incredible track riding day prowess and progess! I am humbled that you even want to ride with me, after your incredible progress the last couple of years, since meeting at SRP. Seriously, I mean it.

Oh, speed is not the problem, by the way, it is those damn blind corners at speed that freak us all out till we learn "The Secret" Ya know, like turn 3 at SRP.

Steve, I really am sorry you are injured--because that gives you too much computer time. Sorry I am so indecisive about a track bike---it must be driving you crazy. I am really disappointed to only run in the top 1-20% of trackdays with my FZ1, I suppose if I pull the trigger and can tolerate something more appropriate for the track, I might pick up a few percent. Fantasy is cheap---other stuff is more expensive---track bikes, deer strikes, etc. Hope you heal up soon, I really need you with less computer time on your hands. Hope you continue with your stellar riding career. Really, I mean it.

Craig

I appreciate that, truly. At this point I am not sure of anything. I rode with Louise to the airport, today. I saw three bikes, two cruisers and a squid on a sport bike wearing shorts and a t shirt - I tell you I can't even imagine getting back on a bike at this point. I/m making no decisions, selling nothing and just going with the flow for now.

I/m sure you'd pick up a few seconds a lap if you had a different bike, like a 600 or 750. But that's your decision and what the hell, who am I to suggest you do something different. You're havin fun the way it is so go for it.

Steve
