How much different is the bike running without plastic? Does the fairing give you a lot of wind protection? How does the lack of plastic effect the aerodynamics? Does it feel different to you?

O it feals 100% different. Going down the straight at 140 my head is a little bobble doll.

Aerodynamics, im very un areo. I chased another 06 r6 completely stock and i could out run him in the straght but i also have a full exhaust and pcIII, but it does help a shit load to have everything on.

I was waiting on my race bodywork that will show up this week. I wouldn't recomend riding without it all on if your looking for speed, cause it cuts it down a lot from what i noticed.

Figured as much. I know on my bike I get tossed around quite a bit. Fatigue sets in quickly at highway speeds!

Kind of interesting to hear if from some one with direct back-to-back experience on the same bike for a direct comparison.

Is that a bike off in the infield on pic 4? Just dont remember an infield barricade at that part of turn 3.
Hmmm that is true, im not sure really. I wish i had different angled pics to tell.

Pretty sure it isn't a bike, cause the yellow flag would have been out and i wouldn't have been pushin that hard through that turn if that was the case.

Turn 3 at Grattan has got to be one of my favorites there such a technical corner. I remember my first time around it *you better stick, you better stick* Definately a pucker corner the first time.:thumb:
