I'm hoping you have some high speed turns close by. In slow turns or swithbacks your GS will have felt lighter and easier to throw around. But once the speed gets up or the cornering angles get REAL extreme you'll be very happy with this bike.TheJoker said:NakedRider, yeah... finally It's a bit too early to go into details, but the KR feels so planted, but I don't think I had her up much beyond 7,000rpm... It feels like sitting on a huuge engine. My GSX-R1000 days are coming back to me :teeth
Sounds like your bike is REALLY shaping up. Here's my bet on your ride with the sportbikes today. You won't have any problem keeping up with any of them. Unless the speeds get 120 + I don't think anyone is going to be pulling away from you in the turns or the straight aways.Ignore Amos said:but it's suppose to be another 75+ deg day again here in Tucson (like about the whole previous week) and I'm on my way out to meet up with a dozen or so sportbike guys to ride (my dirtbike buddies are wondering why I've abandon'd them...). Just put on the Schnitzer headlight cover and bellypan- so here's my mod's to my KR so far...
Evo peg lowering kit
Evo billit clutch slave cyclinder
Evo intake kit
Evo Blue light kit
KTM 950 Handguards
Schnitzer Headlight over and Bellypan
I'll get some pics up sometime later today.
Thanks! Even if it was slippery salty and wet yesterday I did enjoy the stability of the bike... Cool! It's the salt that I just can't stand...mattlamotte said:Nice, man. Congrats.
Snow's no good, but the R does fine in the rain. I commute on it every day and w/ the exception of the occassional puckering manhole cover, it's solid.
Come on, springtime.
