It really is such a shame.

Sonoma Raceway is about 65 miles from me but the lack of runoff there always makes me nervous. Laguna is about 100 miles but the noise restrictions are tough. Thunderhill is probably my best option but is 150 miles away. So jealous of you guys closer to good tracks!

We have a few decent roads in the area, but nothing like wringing out the bikes on a track.
Thanks from Twistedracer

On a separate not there is another one incoming shortly. Headed straight to the local dealer for a full service. Here's a hint - it's getting belts done

Will update this thread once it's home.
Thanks from Twistedracer, cpekz and Sherpa23

Mark here on the forum provided a nice lead. Thanks mark! It’s a low mileage two owner bike and just arrived. Getting a full service, belts, valve check, fresh battery and new rubber and it should be good to go. I hear these 1098r’s have a ton of torque. Excited to have a go at it. Pics to come.
Thanks from dsant, Twistedracer and Sherpa23

Well she made it home in one piece! Just picked the R up from my local dealer who brought her back up to date with a fresh service, rubber, belts, etc.

Only was able to cover about 10 miles, but WOW! What a beast. Low end torque is insane. Riding position also fits me really well. Nice combination of the rawness and visceral feel of the older machines and performance of the newer machines. You'll notice a few more stickers on this bike than what came from the factory. These were professionally added by the previous owner to match the actual bike Bayliss raced. They can be easily removed, but I kinda like them.

I'm looking forward to getting further acquainted with her and exploring her abilities.

In the meantime, here are a few obligatory pics...

Ryan, now I just need a 996R and 999R. Oh yeah and a 1199SL and 1299SL!!
And build a new garage... V4R when it comes out.... I guess it never ends.

I'm now at a point where not only is garage space gone, but I'm also no longer able to ride and enjoy these bikes as much as they deserve. I used to go on 40 mile rides pretty regularly with each one. I'll be culling things down at some point - once I figure out which ones I really want to keep.

Unfortunately that list changes weekly!!
