loving this bike

So yesterday we had like a 65 degree day so we got a bunch of friends together ending up with 17 bikes 2 rvt's a R1 and a Gsxr1000 and the rest were 600's.. Well we started out easy being everyone wasnt really use to ride yet after such a break. Well about mid day we went lookin for some twisties and we found some and OMG this rvt1000 Corners like a dream i had the bike over so far that i have no chicken strips on my tires now and i had a few guys tell me that do track days that i need to get knee pucks and do some track days All in all we did about 200miles yesterday and i was Smiling all day.

Ive learned from riding yesterday I need a Stabilizer being my bike doesnt have one so thats gonna be in the Plans very very soon

Yeah! I know what you mean, we've had a few nice days here and I've got to really stretch out and ride. I still got a quarter inch or so of chicken strips, probably always will have on the street. Lots of very cool canyon roads to ride, but dense population, wildlife, and cops make it just to risky to go balls out. So I'm looking into track gear, and a school.

I got the scotts damper. As far as I know, you don't need the custom fairing stay like the gps does.

When I looked at gpr, they always come with a fairing stay. the scotts I have doesn't.

How much clearance do you have between the top of damper and the bottom of the fairing stay crosspiece? I ended up massaging a tiny bit off that piece to give my damper .50mm clearance at all steering positions. Before that it touched, just a tiny bit.
