Ummm... NO! I do not want to go fast in a straight line. Almost despise it.
NO OFFENSE TO STRAIGHT LINERS!!! Spraying is a engine killer. and I have no one buying me go fast parts.
I understand about the wanna be's. Ill say this. On my Sun morn ride there are two fellas in front of me with " PROFESSIONAL LICENCES " MAX WRIST has ridden with us a few times. So my strengths and weaknesses are revealed weekly. Ill leave it at that.
Will admit. I am on somewhat of a whim. I LOVE the 12. No IF, ANDs or BUT's. More than enuff for the street. BRE V stacks helped me keep from putting a sign on it. Really.
Oddly, the OTHER guys I ride w/ have BUSA's , 14's etc.
I am now on kinda a budget. And am trying desperately not to give up the 12. Gotten spoiled over the years w/ multiple bikes. I had a number in mind to NOT cross. And if it is in the window ill pull the trigger on the 12. Poss 1287 & head work poss cam(s) over the winter. If not sell and take the diff & get a 1krr. Maybe I have not had it long enough, 11 months. Or I'm being paranoid due to some abrupt life changes. But another reason to keep as it was/is such a GREAT street bike. I'll also do away with the R1. That's part of the pot in either direction. Another part is my ego. Not to mention I can no longer hit the track so I am trying to compensate. Realistically it's only an issue in the tight stuff. Plus the R1 can't REASONABLY be wrung out any more. So I am hoping to get as much bang for the buck as I can. Fingers are crossed to make a purchase and take my chances. Was hoping that they, 10's, were capable of some EASY & INEXPENSIVE HP. If there is such a thing. Similar to ours.
Basically coming down to the possibility of me only having ONE bike.
Trying to make the right choice
BELIEVE ME! I am trying to keep the 12
