ZX10r First ride

So, I've just returned home from Jennings GP. This was my first time on my Zx10r. I'll spare you guys the long story and just say that I'm very happy with this bike! Its very power, handles really well. I'll even goes as far to say it turns just as good as my R6 did. I feel like with more seat time I'll be able to turn faster lap times. I was able to turn consistent mid 1:19's. However on the R6 my fastest lap time was a 1:18.73

Congrat's Ricky.
Would you mind sharing the details of what track/race upgrades you did to the bike?

Fugg me, that's quick around there! Only a couple seconds off the lap record! Let me know the next time you'll be going to Jennings so I know to stay away! Don't need to embarrass myself with you out there.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Thanks man, and sure!

30mil
Kyle racing linkage
TTXGP
Guhl Flash w/Custom Map
520 conversion -1 +2
1/4 turn throttle
Bazzaz w/QS & TC
Austin Racing exhaust
BMC race filter and block off plates

I'm sure there are few things I'm leaving out. I still cant believe how well this bike handles! I love the power but I was already expecting the bike to be very powerful so that wasnt a big surprise to me. In my experience you either get one or the other or if your lucky a little bit of both. Now, I feel like I have a bike that has the best of both worlds. The bikes only flaw is me, hopefully in time that will change.

That was exactly my feeling, the bike has terrific handling as well as stability. Neutral, doesn't turn quite as quick as the GSX-R 750 but very close. Very easy bike to ride and very fast, even stock.

thanks brotha! I was lucky enough to ride with Dane Westby on Sunday. He was there testing the new R1, He was turning consistent 1:17's. He's really fast! I honestly felt like the 10r was quicker then the R1, I just ran out of talent to prove my theory I'll have video footage uploaded soon of Westby and I coming out of T2, flying down the back straight! I thought my pace was decent but man, that kid can fly!!

Makes me feel better about buying my 10R instead of paying more for the new R1
