I don't actually have any pictures of the bike. This is the best I can do:



See? It's in there somewhere.

Yep and at the tire test the big bikes were  pushing the front tire->   Chris Ulrich "about 187 in the tri-oval, and the front is tucking!"

The track really needed to be paved many years ago, wayy back when I was racing your chest would get bruised from the bumps on the banking with turn 4 the worst. I would love to go for a few laps  ;D

They used to run part of the course on the beach back in the day.  I guess over-steering was the problem back then.

Found a couple more pics





This is what happens after hitting a armadillo at 90mph, just as I went to pass a semi he came flying out from under the rear tires, thankfully pre-tenderize before I hit him.


Wayy back in time  :D I'm the guy on the bike in the bottom left pic during a pit stop (EBC 3hr race)

The wife has sat next to me operating an automobile at 130 mph on a public highway.....

There are very few very hard and fast rules in our marriage..... not screwing around is one of them. Me staying away from bikes is another......

No offense to anyone here, the whole "murdercycle" crowd can go pound sand. You're never more alive than when you're flat out flyin' on a sportbike in the twisties.  ;D
