    Good call, that should keep Bubbles competitive with the MV Agusta.

    When I used to race karts my dad named our team "RSD Racing" for rubber-side-down. I wanted a more serious name because I was a super duper serious kart racer.....but in hindsight it was a fun name, and I wasn't writing the checks for the parts I broke...

    The last 2 months have been ridiculous.
    It's three of us on team:


    Mark: Absolutely DESTROYED his mint R6 the last track day in November.

    Bought a VERY nice trackday prepped R3 with every fancy tidbit on it already, including a full Suite of Ohlins suspension. Only needs a few safety word things to be ready.
    But has never thrown a leg over it, or any bike its size before

    Bubbles had to order all sorts of race bits right at the start of race season, you can imagine how that went.
    Barely got the last Hotbodies kit, and painted it herself (Bubble wrapped for safety), while we prepped, added, and wired all the bits up. Her precious first-brand-new-thing-shes-ever-bought is now a chopped up 'race bike'.


    She couldn't be happier!

    And the last member of Backmarker Racing? LLC is an Idiot. Me.

    I did buy Marks neighbors Ninja 300 with the intention of cheaply converting it.

    Found out right away there was NO WAY do get it done in time,

    So I bought a fully modded Ninja 400 with one season on it from a super nice guy a state away.
    Sight unseen. And the shipper disappeared for 1/2 a day. Called at 1am "I'm here!"
    No kickstands on these anymore so I had to get a hot one

    Put it on my car scales at 313lbs! You can seriously feel a full tank of gas slosh around.

    We're not turning back now!


    I'll edit the post, to post the post race report on post haste (obviously didn't die) and spoiler, it was EPIC.


    BTW, anyone wanna buy a stock Ninja 300? Daddy needs race gas and slicks.

    I wound up buying a clapped out vintage GSXR from some homeless person in a silver El Camino over by this place. I didnt know you could fit that many empty beer cans in a car, but this guy did.

    He kept blathering on about all the "sweet mods" that were done from "back in Florida when he used to race". Damn thing was covered in "Steetshock" decals. I was going to ask him what a "Steetshock" was but I could tell he was eyeballing my truck to see if I had locking lug nuts. No sir, these will not fit your El Camino.

    I think svracingparts.com sells fuel tank foam to prevent the sloshing around. I dont want you getting dribbles of gas on your rear tire.

    Nope, its spearsenterprises.com
