Went out Saturday morning a bit early to beat the traffic. I wanted to go up the mountain again. Had to pull over once I got on the freeway because I got cold!!! Had to put on some insulation under my vented jacket. Once I started up the mountain I looked in my mirror and there was a sport bike on my tail. Couldn't tell what it was but I "put some coal in the fire" to see if he was a wannabe. He's on my tail!!  OK, my competitive side comes out. Sort of like Jeckle and Hyde. I start paying attention now and we're past the "sporting speed" limit and I haven't ridden this new to me GSX S1000 this fast yet. On the brakes hard, pouring the gas on as early as I think the tire can handle, hit a couple of relines in the lower gears and this guy is still on my can! I can pull him a bit on the very short straights but he gathers me back up in the corners!!         So we get to the top and have a very nice discussion. He rides a Kawasaki Z900 with sticky Michelins. His second Z900 after many 600s and such. He says he lives on the mountain and rides every weekend up and down. Been doing track days at near expert speed.

I'm mad now!  I have to get some good tires!!


Green beats Blue... why doesn't that surprise me?   Bigsmile

I hear you and agree. I am planning a track day with some friends soon. I "usually" ride nice around cars because I don't want to give me and other bikers a bad name.

We see eye to eye on that one ---   same reason I don't drive like a bat out of hell on Va, WV, Tn, Al, Ga back roads with caver stickers on my car...  I may one day need to ask those locals for permission to hike on their land.  

but on the bike, if someone wants to be the rabbit on a mtn road, I'll sometimes follow at a safe distance...    Embarassment

unless they're riding Blue -- 'cause that's no challenge for a kawasaki...    Bigsmile

I been giving you a pass on this constantly promoting green! I may just have to trailer up the Slozuki and come over and give the Kawalski a go!

I think he owns three bikes. Unless his info is wrong. Besides, he's always popping off about his ZX10. You know, it's green.      Hurl

Tell you what -- get sticky tires and I'll let the guy on the 900 keep smoking your 1000 -- maybe THEN you'll get frustrated enough to sell the thing at a good discount...  My garage has space...

         Man! I ain't ridden in 5/6 weeks. Got on my GSX S1000 this morning and the clutch wouldn't work. Then I realized that I was pulling in the front brake lever!!!!!!!!

Went for a beautiful ride to Los Alamos for lunch. Very nice and colors too!

On the way back I ran my buddy with the modified MT10. My stock ECU, decat pipe Suzuki handed him his lunch!! That is with my TALLER gearing. My 5th gear is HIGHER than his stock 6th gear!!
I just love that Suzuki. Got 54 mpg too.

I have been busier than a one armed wall paper hanger this past week. I will try to go for a ride today and take pictures of our color.

I am leaving later today to go to Dallas/Fort Worth area for my nephews wedding and when I get back I have to go to Las Vegas for my granddaughter's bday.      I work harder now than when I worked.
