yeah but still not as cool and picture to prove it.

Vid from the same day following my mate on his 1299. I had no electronics all weekend so my dash looks like a christmas tree with all the warning lights. The IMU and speed sensor were out which turns off everything; TC, WC, EBC,etc. The bike was savage for the first few days until I extended the shock which really helped to get it under control with the shorter Bridgestone V02 I was trying out so I was able to push a bit more on the last day. I put the usual Dunlop slicks on and immediately knocked two and a half seconds off my laptime! Turned out guys are using 22psi with the bridge stones instead of the 26psi factory recommended that I was using so that might have been part of the problem but the Dunlops definitely help to tame the angry R a bit.

Thanks from Twistedracer
