R said goodbye streets, hello track.
 
Itís been a busy year. Been building the racebikes and being the crew chief for my buddy going after a second Open GP Twins championship in a row. Mission accomplished.

My 16R just felt so happy on the track that it said goodbye to the streets this last March.

Off came the stock bodywork to be replaced by Armour Bodies. Just painted flat black as they are just a stepping stone in my plans.

To keep the mod list short, Akra race exhaust, Motoholders fairing and subframe, Ducati Corse rearsets, and of course Phlís valve cover bolts and pinch bolts.

Unfortunately with this years schedule I was only able to hit the track for a couple sessions at the end of the season.
So much rust to knock off.

So now itís on to the next stage as money permits.

Fullsix carbon subframe and fuel tank already done. Still need more $$$ for the nose and sides.

Apex Racing switches ordered with the ignition delete.

Lots of small details done to the bike but Iíd have to pore all over her to bore yíall with the details.

These are the pics as she sits at the moment.
