Gosh no - I sold that after 2-3 years to someone who stripped it for pure track use. I used the proceeds to buy DJ equipment and became a full time DJ for quite a few years - several of those were as the resident DJ on Scotland's Radio Clyde Roadshow (a whole 'nuther story there!). It was DJ'ing that funded my Jags!

I should add it was also hard to top a bike like that so it was time to move on to something different. Might be reason I am still alive today. I have driven faster on two wheels than I have ever on four - despite the Shelby.....

forgot to mention in my last post they other reason i haven't been to one yet. i'm on second shift, lol which SUCKS some days, that and i work noon to midnight on both saturday and sunday, otherwise i'd be at the one on april 20th, and the one thats going to be in the parking lot at Madison Square mall.

---------- Post added at 10:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:16 PM ----------

which is the other reason i'm trying to get the college in, so i can get a better job with better hours....i'm starting to hate being on second shift, and i'm really hating my schedule, it has its positives (like i work 4 days off 3) but a lot of negatives too

I have a 98 GSXR 750, and I love it. I ride almost daily. Even if its rainy and cold, it still comes out at least once a week.
