Sunny Sunday ride

I had an excellent ride on Sunday on my ZR7, with the company of my friend George on his 929.
The weather was excellent and we had a rerally good ride in a nice twisty road.
My latest mods proved to be really what the bike needed!
BT010 front and rear were excellent, ss lines and Carbonne Lorraine pads gave me some braking power, and the Devil exhaust with jet kit and KN allowed the bike to rev to the redline in top on the long straights! Of course my friend on the 929 was just waiting for me on the straights, as the 7 goes up to 225km/h and his 929 can show up to 275 on the clocks, but in the twisties he's not so experienced and I show him the way
At some point I was at top speed and 2 R1 blew past me at 30-40km/h more
Well even 225 is a lot for my neck now that I haven't ridden for a while
I just miss my bike more now (I'm back to Germany) and can't wait until thie Sunday!
I hope the weather is just as good.
Here is a pic with me and the 7

It IS fast Titomike
Of course we know how good the ZR is in the twisties, but I can tell you I wouldn't have a chance if my friend on the 929 was experienced
Whenever I ride his bike and then the ZR, I feel like it has no power, wooden brakes etc
Actually we don't have such a policy, but I alwys have my lights on. I would swers they were on when the picture was taken, but the picture doesn't show it
Here is one more...
Can you see the light
