<div align="right<{POST_SNAPBACK}>
only in some parts. there are actually some very killer twisties in the US, in my area as well as others. We do have roads like "Deals Gap" which is i believe 318 curves in 11 miles or something to that effect, and canyons in california, etc. good stuff!

and as for the exhaust, the whole reason i like it is cause it resembles the 2 stroke GP500 style exhausts that i've always loved!
I rode the Dragon on my 2004 Honda VFR in 2012. It was Amazing: like being on a Rollercoaster. I am def planning on going back.

I Ride: Suzuki GSX-R 750 / Kawasaki Ninja H2
My current ride is a K9 GSXR 750, Ive done some upgrades to it (listed below) including a custom fuel map with figures on the dyno showing 140whp. I use it for riding in the mountains and for track days at local race tracks. its a pretty fun bike, nimble enough to throw around with enough power to chase bigger bikes around a track.

Akrapovic full race exhaust system
K&N filter
Bazaar Zfi TC QS
quick shifter
traction control system
braided brake lines
Pirelli Supercosa SP tyres

I Ride: Yz250, rgv250
Here is my rgv250. I did a few races on it a few years ago, it's a track bike now and daytime mot

Its motor is pretty standard apart from racing pistons, bigger jets, air filter, drilled air box and I run premix.

Has some nice bits, ebc discs and hel lines, arrow system, tyga fairings and subframe, talon sprockets, rk chain, andreani fork dampers, gsxr 600 rear shock.

Smells beauty and goes like stink

Thanks heaps mate.

Yeah it sure makes a lot of noise, I wear earplugs when i ride it. It does that really cool pop when you change gears with the quick shifter at full beans which always makes me smile.

Man does that bring back memories. Before my son could ride, i used to ride him like that on my XR600R through rugged enduro trails. He would burst out giggling every time we wheelied over a log or through a mud pit. Camping and riding is one of the best things a man can do with his kids, they remember it forever and there are so many teachable moments derived from both

Maybe the best overall production track bike ever for novice and intermediate riders.. Best of both worlds, handles like a 600 with a bunch more power

The Gap was our personal playground for years, then the internet ruined it. We still ride it a couple times a week, but you either have to get there at sun up and get a few passes in before the cops show up and the Harley procession starts, or after 6pm when they go home. Probably make a run through tonight.There are tons of great roads in the region that get a lot less publicity than the Dragon and thats just fine with us.

Awesome pickup! He did that kind of a ride on an Iron 883? Holy god, props to him on that since that thing was built for bar-hopping more than anything. Tell him that if he decides to stroke it out to a 1200cc engine, it'll actually be cheaper in the long run than it would have been had he bought a 1200cc Sporty. I can definitely see the perspective shift those experiences give.
