Thanks! It's a GPR. Not much to compare it to except my Termi from my 08 I used to have. Quality is really good for the price and the sound is perfect with no droning at all.

nice pictures , but wrong line

at left turns you should not use left side of your lane (not at the beginning of the curve as long as you can not see the cruve until its end)) so you and your bike lean over the opposite track.

Good point, but I can see all the way through this turn. This is the correct line. I have taught Motorcycle safety for 15 years.

Cheers

Headed to the dragon in 3 weeks. I think I'm going to pull off the center stand for more clearance.

sorry, did not want to offend you, but i see wrong lines all the time, on pictures, videos, youtube and of course, most time in reality.
hard to detect it in a picture

Sweet! Have fun down there. Ride safe! no contributions to the tree of shame.

Funny, for all the complaints about ground clearance around here, I have had no issues. I'm an expert road racer/instructor. I weigh 130 pounds, but I can push a bike extremely hard. Center stand has never touched. Foot pegs occasionally graze, but that's at pretty silly lean angles for the street. I have dialed in some preload on the stock rear shock. That's all.

I guess for bigger guys getting the springs sorted would be key. A lot of it is likely down to turning in quicker. using max lean just before the apex, and never after it. These techniques are key to going quick, and too much lean too late in the corner is the #1 mistake I see in my students.
