what a beauty. I still love it and thought about buying a used one...

but it seems maintenance and spare parts are just way way too high.

If it was in the Panigale (S or R) range then would've done it.

Exactly! The one owner offered me a great price on his that I could've scraped up but maintenance and repairs would've been too much for me. Waiting for parts, I have patience.

You know that wouldn't happen. He'd just tell them to fill in the dollar amount on the blank checks he gives them.

It was something along the lines of a douche bag showing up at a TD with one and wadding it up on lap entry.

That is a one shot you'll never see often if ever...that would be fun to ride.

Never been to that track yet. How is it Twisted? Worth make the trip out there?

It's an older track, not as safe as the Ridge. But I really do enjoy it still. You drop downhill from 2-3-4 and there's a blind rise down the back straight to 5. Uphill from 7-8.

Worthwhile doing at least once. I enjoy tracks with elevation changes. I've done Portland once and found that flat track boring for my tastes.
Join us at the Ridge July 1st with OPRT Flo if it doesn't coincide with OMRRA. WMRRA isn't racing that weekend.
Thanks from flobrandx

Thanks for the track info/description!

I agree, PIR is flat and boring but it's close for me. I will definitely look into meeting up with out there and at the Ridge too! Can't wait for spring!
