Thought so.. I haven't got them down yet, I get all scared when I can see the front fender in my vision when I do them. I can't say I have tried to do the staggard stance yet either.. It is easy to do them? more control?

I am familiar with Crabb and Cow Creek, but not CR42 and the Plant Rd. Are these roads off of Crabb?
The plant road is right across from George Ranch. Tell me you have never been down it!!! There is some good turns, kinda feels like a lil race track. CR42 is off of 1462, a few miles south of 762. Only a few turns have nice pavement but it's nice to cruise down regardless. See for yourself.

OK. I didn't know that was a true road. I thought it was just the plant entrance. I will try it out next time. I will also look for CR42. Thanks.

I've always done sitdowns, but not for very long distances.
I tried staggards a few times and they always felt weird to me but check it out. . .I learned them on a little Honda XR50 I bought and it took about 6 tries on the ZX-10R and I got it. It's actually pretty easy for the most part. I honestly thought it would be harder but it's not. Good times.

Mine is dual-lock velcro'd to the ram air duct, I hate the location but too lazy to make a bracket so it will be right next to my gauges. It's kinda hard to see cause the clutch cable is in the way.
