the new 10 works well. It not that fast with my skill level on the seat. I am still getting used to it. When I get on it hard it's got a bit of a head shake... not sure why with the ohlins dampner but I am guessing it's the setup or I am just not used to that much pull.
Man, I've got one more big tournament at the end of April, and then I'm done until June. That's when the tournament season starts.
From here on out, I'm just going to mainly focus on mixed martial arts. I've gotten away from that for a while, and since I'm paying for the membership, I might as well start going again.
As for the new 10, maybe Krystal could handle the power better than you.
I'm not surprised that thing has headshake on acceleration, Andrew. That's probably like saying 'hey, this damn NASA shuttle vibrates on liftoff.' That bike of yours is wicked, bro. What is it...170 hp on 375 lbs? That's scary. Fun, but scary. Can't wait to ride it. Also, I went on the Kawasaki website, and sportbikepics.com to look at photos of that yellow bike: that looks pretty sweet, man.
Damn, I meant to tell you: I found a new dealership 20 minutes from me. It's called GSP Performance. I plan on going at the end of this week. Shouldn't take but a few minutes to put the tire on and change the oil. Can't wait.
Shit: I just remembered that I don't have a NH driver's license or registration yet. Crap. Guess I'm doing that next week, too.
Hope you had a good ride on Friday, Andrew.
