TBBT Tim 01 Ripped Green 12, Venom Adam 00 Red 12, 220 mph speedo, And Ninja Dude, Rob 01 Silver, me Norm 02 PMB 12,

We had a 12 for each year and almost every color. We needed a Blue one to have finnished it off perfectly.

We went for a Saturday Ride. Down in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky.

We frist went to a Dealer Cycle Spec, In Cinncy, They did'nt have any 02 12's They had a Silver 01, ZX12R Your not gonna believe price. 10,995 Not kidding.

We then got in a gawd awfull traffic jam, We then headed for the playground. KY. Route ? I'm afraid to advertise. You will have to ride with us to get this one, This route is awesome Short stright's into 15-35 mph corner's and decent road. The paint on the center line was thick and caused some wobble's on acceleration. But that would be my only complaint on surface. No gravel, No pothole's, There were some minor area's of patching, But plainly visble.

Adam took the lead and held a real fine pace. With me following with Rob and Tim, behind me in that order.

I think that route is one of the best I've ever been on, 30-40 mile's of nonthing but turn's.

Too many driveway's, So on the stright's I tried not to exceed 70-75, Also so the local's don't call the cop's.

About 2/3 the way though we stopped at my crash site where the 01 Silver of mine was totaled.

Frist time I'd been there since I totaled the Silver Beast. It was difficult also. But I'm glad I had waited this long to return.

The right hand turn had dropped over an abrupt hill, Into a 15 mph turn. The pavement was also chewed up, Which probably caused the rear wheel kick out hard. Making me believe it was going down. After looking at turn I realize I could have made that turn, If I would have kept my head and just stayed with it.

Enough of that,

After we left there Rob switched place's with Adam, And the pace picked up also. Rob was hammering those turn's, and I stayed with him untill we came down a hill into another 15 mph turn. Damm thing just about gave me a heart attack. I had a serious pucker on that one. But the 02 PMB 12 stuck like glue.

We soon later crossed the bridge back into Ohio and I had to part way's with Adam Rob and Tim. All the bike's were clean and waxed to a shine but mine.

I had been riding the last three day's and busy as hell, drag strip Thursday over 150 mile's, picking up dampened 17 Friday and installing another 150 mile's, So by Saturday All I had time for was a quick wipe down before the ride.

Tim's new pipe looked awesome on the Green Ripped 12, And that was the frist time I had met Tim. Good people, Adam it's alway's a pleasure riding with Adam and fun, Rob was there and quick to tell me to get outta the road I was standing in the middle of looking at crash site,

Rob said" Hey get outta the road a tractor was comming. Turned out it was a Harley. I replyed same thing as a tractor<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

Can't wait to get together again to do that route again. Thank's for the company guy's, It was a good time. About 400 mile's Saturday.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

By the way I checked my Powerball ticket and not one number matched.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":(">

Next time all of us need to buy ticket's<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Hey WD, We figured out why i cant carry the corner speeds you and ND do. With out it getting skittish.

After seeing you're tires. I got to thinking "hmmmmm i have more miles on mine than he dose. Why arnt mine worn like his?" So i said some thing to ND, that i thought i might have a harder compound tire. Sure as shit i have the hpx's!!!!!!!! No wounder when i lean her over good and far she starts scooting around!!!!!

Time for a call to mamba!!!!!!!

Venom I forgot about our short ride that ended up with you and I doing wheelie's.

We pulled out of gas station where we all met up. I noticed my fuel gauge was on last bar.

After telling Adam and getting turned around Adam And I are sitting next to each other at light. We cross intersection when light turn's green And we both go WOT same time next to each other.

We're both on the back wheel only and we're still not letting off. I told Adam later that, I was not going to back out untill he did. Thankfully he did. and I could come back down also.

My coach at the strip has been telling me to stay with it and clutch and use throotle control to bring it back down, Easer said then done with the weight of the 12 and power though.

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Adam I've never had a set of tire's that cornered like these. Dunlop's give good feedback but like to slide, The Bridgestone had great wear for stright road riding. But both the Dunlop's and Bridgestone's spun on hard accelration,

These Corsia's don't spin and corner like your on rail's.

That Michelin of Rob's is awesome too the way I seen him scooting around the corner's also. I've got to try em.

Tire's make a huge difference Adam. My rear did'nt kick out once and not once did it slide.

I wonder if ND's Michelin's kicked out or had any sliding?

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Yeah it was a great day for riding! Had a blast! WD Saturday i had a total of 4 slides 3 of them were when you had to split off and i was chasing ND. All of them except for 1 i can deal with. That 1 though was bad enough that it spit me out of my seat. After that i was shit for the rest of the ride. So i backed it down and pretty much just chilled. I know why it slid and i cant blame it on the tires. I was pretty tiered by that time and just gave her too much coming out of a right hander.

On a different note I just got home from work to find a shipping receipt. Alex ordered me a 16 tooth for our anniversary.


HMMMMMMMM.......................


Any one ever try a 16/47????? Bahhhhhh Bahhhhh

Yeah Tim the outside of my leg's were hurting. My only pain,

Surprised my lower back held up.

After I split off from you all I got real tired and ,real hungry, real quick. I struggled to make it there by 6 pm, I bet you all were wore out on 41, When I got to Ripley they had a big bash in town, 15-20 minute's stopped in traffic<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":(">

I was thinking you all probably stopped to have lunch at diner in. Pretty good place to eat about mile from where I split off from you all.

Vozizm same distance to Ohio that is to NC. You are welcome to ride here as well<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.
