Looks a lot like No Problem Raceway.  20 miles from here.

If you ever get the chance, that was an intense ride, even on a 600CC Scooter. I am sure your buddy has heard about it. You too have probably heard of it..
Do not watch these if you do not want to go.

The Tail of the Dragon is intense in a car, I can only imagine going through there on a bike.

There are definately some CRAZY bikers down that way.

I was down there last year and went through the entire thing in the dark - talk about a hell of a ride.

Yes, I've heard of it, but have never been.  I'd love to go one day.

Well if you do go, make it a point to be there in the daylight.    Do not attempt at night.

Well, there goes your post count!the12voltís New Toy, 2009 Yamaha YZF R1 - Page 2 -- posted image.

I know, because I bought my bike in November and started buying my car audio stuff in December.† Well, as you can tell if you look at my installation progress pictures, the bike gets all my attention!† I never imagined a car stereo taking over 5 months to complete!† But then I never had a brand new bike AND brand new car audio gear to install at the same time!† Some of my friends wonder why I'm not online as much anymore.† They just don't understand the hypnotic powers a new bike has on its owner!

That's awesome that you got a bike!† Nice choice too.† Just don't get too crazy on it.† We still need you to keep us in line here!

And speaking of bikes, I just discovered a bike I never realized existed that I have to buy soon: the Kawasaki Z-1000.† Had I known about them or even heard mention of them I would have bought one instead of my current bike.† But I never stumbled across any, and obviously there weren't many used ones out there.† Now when I get my huge settlement from my parents' estate in the next few months, I'll have a new Z-1000 in my garage!† I never rode a sportbike but always said if I ever got one it would be a ZX-11 until the ZX-14's came out.† Now I don't know.† Perhaps an R1? Tee-Hee!

Here's†MY "car audio installation avoidance tool", a 2007 Honda 919. Bought new in November 2008 with zero miles. Over 7,500 on it already, even though Winter just wrapped up here in Washington State...

I'm slowly getting new parts in for my bike. I'll post some better photos when the rain stops. Here are a few I took with my phone...

I guess somebody is having trouble with their copy of PhotoShop.  So I did this with Paint.
