    i do sit on em sometimes nowadays. Old age i guess.

    That seat isnt comfy at all after half hour and needs some padding. After an hour im standing up riding it..Thats the next job for it, get it padded and recovered.I was thinking leather but not black which gets too hot., so its either red or pink

    Seat modding and recovering is really cheap, and in fairness the Thais are great at it.

    Very Nice JP.

    Have you come off it yet? Everyone ive spoke to on sports bikes has come a cropper at some point.

    I saw a R15 the other day. Is that a baby one, the 15 standing for 150cc?

    Naaah Dill, I owned sports bike in the US. I do not think I have been without a moto in my garage for 20 years. Maybe longer. So no close calls here however in the mountains near Khao Yai I came around a corner and grabbed handful of brake as 2 big Elephants were in the road. We stared at each other and I felt time to grab gears and bail.

    Yes the R15 is the 150 cc. R3 is 320cc. The new R1 is an incredible work of art. That's the 1000cc bike. If you buy one here you better dig deep into the money jar as it will set you back some serious play cash.

    Whats the 0-60 and top end on those 3 Yammys?

    I might hire one but i wouldnt trust myself on a 1000cc. I wouldnt be able to resist seeing what happens if i just pull it a little more

    R15 is probably 5 seconds T/S 135 to 145Km/h ( Guesstimate)

    R3 is likely 2-3 seconds T/S 175 - 180km/h. (I have had mine up to 156Km/h)

    R1 is Good Luck in 0-60 and a TS of 300km/h....(Better bring along a spare pair of underwear)

    I ran my 2005 R1 at race day a few times. I clipped low 10 seconds in 1/4 mile and had a tough time keeping the front end on the ground. The new R1 is likelt deep 9's in 1/4 mile and you better have super 3M velcro on your ass to the seat because you are gonna be challenged to keep front end down.....

    Doesn't matter how safely you think you are riding someone will always pull out of a junction,i didn't see him.Or come round a corner on the wrong side off the road,I crashed an RD350 LC at over 100 mph managed to avoid on coming car got catapulted in to a field .Couldn't hit the brakes until i avoided the car.It was raining at the time my fault pushing to hard.When i was 18 had fast road bikes also had a 500 cc Red Rocket dirt bike i learnt so much about bike control on that bike it [probably saved my life that day,It mghtt be worth riding a dirt bike somewhere off road to learn some bike control.These days i have Gert on the back i do ride carefully but i only ride Pattani these days,more likely to set off an early morning roadside bomb then have a collision with another vehicle.

    Mind you given the chance and a fast 2 stroke still good fun hitting the power band in first and second gear,especially if the roads are wet.

    I have a good friend who had his leg amputated in a car accident(2cars head on)
    He told me when he went to get his new false leg that its mainly bike riders in there.

    JPPR2 the Go Pro would be better mounted on your helmet less vibration.

    Actually Ratchaburi, I have a mount on my helmet. what I have found is that I am a very active rider and always looking around (Probably my racing days). At the end of a vid I'd play it back and it gave me a headache as I was always looking around, leaning over and flipping the moto around and it shows up in the playback.

    Surprisingly the mount location on the fairing doesn't show much vibration. The GoPro and its image stabilization is remarkably good. I am going to try other areas on the moto. I am configuring a mount for the front between the lights and possible one on the front fender. The road height view is such a cool view when watching on my big TV.

    I need to get out more on it. Just no time with work.

    All depends on where you ride Dill. I always do speed blasts in big open road areas. Where I live there are long wide open roads and mostly farm land with great visibility. Where I work is the same. Buzzing it up to 130km/h to 150km/h is easy.

    Anywhere near a town or city I am always conservative. Too many things can go wrong.
