Discuss or start a topic about sport bikes
Given that Sean has rebuilt this forum with the hopes of bringing back the sense of community that we had before, I’d like to encourage everyone to use their real name rather than a nickname. Just my $.02
(maybe there’s a way to do both?)
Pictures and videos of bikes, rides, etc.
Sometimes 160+ “indicated”… my braking area is a bit tough since I have been there 3 times in 7 years lol.
Ah. I have a 2012 ZX10R, and by default the bike does the exact same thing. Thankfully I had the ECU flashed which allowed the bike to remember the last setting so mine is always off. Granted on the lowest setting it didn’t intervene much even though I’m a very spirited rider. However, the bike remembering to keep the TC off is probably the best thing that came from the flash.
Discuss whatever you’d like here - open to all topics.
I’m thinking about the epoxy kind with the little color flecks in it and the abrasive texture. Worried it might be good when wet - but a bitch to sweep or clean.
To all the women who ride sportbikes - this forum is for you!
@"-Q-" Great! Let’s spread the word!

Helmets. gloves, jackets, etc. You need to protect yourself from everything and anything. So what should you buy? Check out what others have to say.
I was die hard shoei fan, they make great helmets, but made my switch starting in 2012 to Scorpion. I run the track with the R2000 and street with the T1200. R2000 was great since it came with a clear and tinted visor, while the t1200 came with an awesome helmet bag.
t1200 also has cutouts for my sena as well, but at over 70mph, the wind noise gets a bit too loud to hear the sena. Still cant complain regarding either helmets and most of their lineup. They do exactly as advertised and quality is great. Price point, I don’t think they have any competition even remotely close to their price range.

Hey Murph…That bike is so beautiful but I think I’m going to stick with the Glady for a while longer. Apparently I’m not done with her yet.

Mountain Time Zone states.
Anyone around in Utah? Planning a group of us to head over that way for Sept 7th full course track day.
Central Time Zone states.
Hey, Just saw that your in Oklahoma. Where at? Name is Redd
Moore here. I have an 01’ RC-51 for the street (don’t ride much) and an 03’ 600RR for the track (although I haven’t been on it for 2 yrs).
As far as curves go, don’t know a single one in Oklahoma.
But nobody has joined yet? Guess it is too soon. Welcome, to all Triumph riders that eventually come in!
Pit limiter, launch control, and quickshifter since the ECU already has it… a simple flash to get it unlocked currently. Projector headlights, adjustable electronic damper would be nice, go from street to track instead of having to purchase the Ohlins race smart scu. Also some of the electronics the R1m has would be nice as well haha.
Of course a higher line model would be nice with upgraded wheels/suspension.
