Ahh...MD. Now that's a road trip I would not mind doing. So send me some pictures of your bike and let's talk about some figures. I'll have you on a 2013 bike before you know it! :)

Not aggravated, just don't appreciate silly comments about what technology can or can't do. not as fast as you at tbolt but I can run a respectable 1:37-8. I have a day job and kids now and can't afford to low side twice at the track as you mentioned happened to you and be out of work. The extra few seconds are for guys like you and the pros.

Suspension changes and valving. They don't tell the general public that stuff, but if you talk to very experienced triumph suspension guys they can tell you the minor changes.. They were made for a good reason too. I've heard if you are racing a 2011, you need the thing revalved... If you are just doing trackdays or street riding, no need.

i wouldn't be opposed to picking up a 13 for a track bike. I mean shit, with track plastics the ugly headlights go away!

It's ugly plain and simple and they failed the aesthetics by not using projectors. But the upgrades are very nice and who wouldn't want to have them?

I'll stick with my '12 and I am happy that I did not hold out for this one. And now that Yamaha is talking about triples I would definitely wait to see what they put out before buying this bike.

But, if you are tracking it, it wouldn't be so ugly because all the bad stuff would disappear with fiberglass fairings.

I could see WHY they got rid of the projectors, they SUCK! It's why all of us were getting aftermarket HIDs.
