Just sharing some pics and vid. Still on the stock tires. They're toast--will be picking up some BT016s next week.

The photographer I like wasn't there so didn't bother buying the pics so sorry about the crappy quality.

Rode in the Intermediate Group rather than the novice group this time.

Here is the vid: Don't make fun of me...I'm slow! :D

Looks awesome. Next time drive right over the curbs in the esses. Much faster that way. Can't wait to get mine on the track at Buttonwillow! Like the others, what are the camera deets?

Thanks guys!

I wish I had the camera all sorted out before that one because I had some sweet battles before. Oh well. Glad you guys enjoyed it.

If you look at the pics very carefully you'll see the camera mount on the right side of the bike. All it is is duct tape + foam beer holder = INSTANT CAMERA MOUNT that absorbs vibration!! :D

As for the camera it's the Aiptek 1080p HD camera. By far the best bang for the buck!

Yeah, thanks. I usually take a straight line through those esses but I had no idea I was throwing it around like that that session.

beautiful video... I'm actually very impressed with the little 250. I would like to see a whole pack of 250's going at it. I think that would be one of the most enjoyable racing that could ever be.

We have a kart track here in Marshalltown that has a class that the ninja can run against motards. I haven't seen an 08 run against them, but the older gen 250 was fairly competive with some susension mods and some sprockets... I can't wait until next year. Hopefully the track will reopen. It was closed due to track ownership issues...

check out www.ciamr.com for more infor on the track...

To the OP: Nice pictures and video. How did the brakes hold up on the little guy??
--David
The brakes held up A LOT better than I anticipated. I was surprised how late I was able to brake. And the harder I squeezed the harder it grabbed.

Next mod is to upgrade the lines and the brake pads.
