Thanks for hosting the pics Ed!

How many times in 400 posts have I said that I love this bike? Not enough! I LOVE THIS BIKE!

This is my friends new RS250 (ex-Blackmans/Himmelsbach) in new paint livery and my 2000 RSV-R ready for the ride up to VIR South course yesterday (May 12)

WHOA Nellie! (Braking for turn 1 from about 150mph - look at the fork travel, I think I need more preload!)

Here's the apex of Turn 2

This is turning into the left "bowl" at the bottom of the Spiral turn (reminiscent of the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca but smaller)

Nice Bike!

I'll have my 00 rsvr at laguna on the 22nd for its 4th time this year. my tuono will also do some time, being that its run-in now.

Laguna Seca (screw that Mazda Raceway crap) is a legendary track that I hope to do some day. I'm considering going to the Keith Code school just to do that.

The titanic Schwantz/Rainey/Lawson battles there in 80's GPs were amazing, and I look forward to being on that same tarmac.

Maybe next year...

I did my superbike school at laguna in 1977, and started afm in 78' on my 78' rd400.

laguna in 10 minutes from my front door:evil: :smokin:
