    Been there done that! I had the biggest highside of my life on my '97 TLS. On a trackday at Cadwell Park, I had a massive tank slapper while hard on the gas coming out of Barn corner on to the start finish straight. The bike tank slapped so violently I was spat 10' into the air just missing the pit wall in the process. My mate was in my slipstream at the time, and had to change his underwear back in the pits.
    I slid from the pit wall all the way to the medical centre ( which was handy) on my back. My leathers looked like suede by the time I stopped moving. The groove where the bike came to a stop on the grass at pit exit is still visable to this day
    The bike was rebuilt with a Maxton rear damper conversion and revolved forks. I returned to Cadwell and went 4 seconds a lap quicker. I raced the bike in New Era SuperTwins for a while. It was awesome. I have a picture of it in the lid of my toolbox. I'll see if I can post a picture up.

    Ewe yamahahahahahaaaaaas No thanks lol ;p its gotta be cheap to run do 70mph easily and be reliable!

    Else I may as well ride the capo to work daily.
    The honda putput costs me 6 a week in fuel the capo 28!
    Ill be happy with a std 200cc as it should not even double the fuel costs etc of the putput
