I run bitches down all day at the race track...I especially love passing the liter bikes hardparking it in the corners. The full range torque on the SV makes riding and tracking soooo easy. I run the majority of Mid-Ohio in 3rd gear. I upshift to 5th during the back straight, then back down to 3rd entering the next corner...then just have fun. An instructor got away from me at my last track day, and there were 2 or 3 liter bikes that would hang with me for 2 or 3 laps, beyond that - nothing.
In an Amateur class it is very rare to see a liter bike beating a 600. The liter bikes are heavier and you have to roll on a lot later and input is very unforgiving. An SV is a phenomenal bike to learn on and they are comfy as ****. But even a novice racer can reach the limits of the SV on the track in a season or two, depending on the number of races s/he does.
If you're going to be a track junkie, get a 600cc sportbike. If not, get the SV. If you just want to be a stereotypical squid, get at Gixxer.
Anyone in the market for a kickass custom Glock 30? I've got an early-gen no-rail G30 with an extreme grip reduction/re-angle and stippling job from Boresight Solutions, 2 mags (with reduced and stippled bases), melonite-coated Heinie Straight-8 sights, a Ghost Rocket transfer bar, a mild trigger polish job, and a smooth-faced Glock trigger. Plus 2 holsters, 1 kydex Raven Concealment Systems, and 1 leather OWB (don't remember what maker, might be UBG).
I've always been suspect of the "government mandated" switch to digital....I really want to know why they feel the need to have the analog signals and what they plan to do with it. Elighten me as to what your ideas are?
The FCC wanted to condense the frequency range used by broadcast tv and sell then no longer used frequencies to the cell phone providers. Frequencies were divided into blocks and sold to the highest bidder. This was never a secret. The wireless spectrum auction netted the FCC nearly $20 billion.
Bah, I ordered the logitech G15, and the ******* Z key takes twice the effort to register. Now I have to send it back and won't have a replacement sent my way until the faulty one arrives at their wharehouse.
