I may have missed it, did you do a build out on a 959 like you did with the 899? That was a really cool bike. I remember you got it super light.

Yup, got it last year. I haven't done too much to the 959 yet, just light wheels, brakes, bodywork, Blip-Box, and suspension. I LOVE this bike, it's ridiculously easy to ride, great on tires, can still rip when it needs to, I think it's the perfect track day machine.

Im surprised by how quick my bike is on the track, But on the straight (1.2km) and a fast section, it does struggle.

It wasnt untill 2 Pro's for the national SBK series came visit (one on a 959 and one of a zx6r) for track time ahead of the round at our track.
While being very stock track bikes with slicks, their skill level had them doing insane corner speeds compared to other racers. It was impressive to watch.

These guys were 2 seconds quicker than the next bike (HP4)
