    First half is poodling around the town I was in.. Second half.. well...

    That bit where I mention a speed camera and look down at my speed, brake, and giggle..
    I was doing 130 MPH. Not proud of it but holy ****, the acceleration was brutal.
    I am a lightweight cyclist but an elephant would be fast on this.

    Who doesn't!

    I was in Ducati Reading last year (Bloke is a proper bell-end - oh well) and they had a bike in there which looked something like this.
    Was drooling. I thought it was an old bike updated... Turns out it was a new order. What was it? Looked very raw and some top spec components on it.

    The pic is actually a 1098 streetfighter at heart..

    Best bike I've ever owned and I've had a fair few, wouldn't dream of swapping it.

    R6 looks lovely mate. Love the look of sports bikes. Those tyres you have don't look rain friendly.

    Quick wash, went over the wheels and the swing arm with hot soapy water and a cloth, alot of road grime sticks in those areas.

    What is it? 750 or 1000? It looks about k3/k4.

    Hi mate 750 k4 came with yoshi can and k&n filter. Pilot power 2ct on rear, mechelin road 4 up front. Lovely bikes, reminds me a bit like a 2stroke when you rev it through the powerband

    Very nice. They change direction with the power of your mind. It is supposed to have a good spread of torque but maybe that little hint of the 600 when it hits the power at 9500/10000 rpm. Although I imagine on the 750 that might be a little earlier at approx 8500 rpm. My cousin has a k1 1000 which he let me loose on once. The spread of power is unreal, pulls forward keenly jolting on the arms even in 6th at 30mph and a mere 1100-1300 rpm. His has the Yoshi end can or is it system with the power commander.

    Thanks mate

    The grip handling noise, vibration between your legs, the smell! Brutal acceleration! It puts power down unbelievably. All these things is why I love this bike. Trackdays is something I'm seriously considering. I am struggling to feel at one with the bike especially through the twisties. Hopefully some days at the track can improve my riding nd I can enjoy the bike even more.

    I'm tall and and about 15 stone but get thrown out the saddle and off the pegs easily on bumpy back roads because of tight ligaments in my lower legs. That's why I never got my mogo down back roads. I did one track day and had a blast. I never got the knee down but apparently another rider said I was scrapping a peg on a 1200 bandit. I found that there were hills near my home that I used to go down quicker on a push bike with baldy tyres than I did on the bandit, lol.

    Track day will be good.

    Track riding versus road riding are almost 2 completely different things , it sounds like you suspension isn't set correctly for your weight, Have you ever had it setup for you professionaly ?

    My gsxr 750 k5, k-tech front and rear internals, galfer disks, brembo m/c, pc3, quickshifter, ohlins damper and a few other bits.

    Owned lots of bikes, newer and older than this, bigger and smaller engines and in my opinion this is the best all rounder.

    If your suspension is not setup for you and your riding style then it wont handle the way you want chap.
    how you setup your bike for a track is not the same as road riding, I used to take my road duke on trackdays and it never really handled the way I wanted it too, way to soft in fast corners and not enough damping under heavy braking...but it was great on roads.
    Got a duke race bike for racing instead , different ball game altogether.

    I’m still new to biking. Does anyone use all year rider to treat their bikes- acf50 etc? Think it’s £70 or so for a full detailed clean and treatment.
    Or do you just do it your self?

    I use an AllYearBiker franchise to clean & valet the bike once a year - it costs me £120 but is nonetheless good value bearing in mind the 5 hours that it takes him. Once finished, a lad at at J&S Accessories store proclaimed that he could eat his breakfast off it.
