a suspension upgrade for your weight and skills and Brembos make perfect sense.
I learned a while ago that HP comes second to setup. If it doesn't turn and stop, doesn't matter how fast you can go. I spent several years beating people on the "slower" bike.
If you and your dad make it out west, give a shout.
Thanks man! That's awesome of you. Would like to make it out that way. I lived in Tempe, AZ for a few years when I went to ASU and still love it out there, especially Sedona & Flagstaff. So hopefully I'll make it back that way sometime soon. Will definitely hit you up if I do!
Never look down on someone unless you're picking them up.
