Hi, one year ago I purchased my first motorcycle, a Honda Cbr 600 f3!:thumb: One month later it was completely disassembled and I've sandblasted the frame and powdercoated it in charcoal, sprayed the motor in black, resprayed the fairings and added an airtech solo tail as well as aftermarket mirrors and blinkers... :p Yesterday I went to a track school and had so much fun and adrenaline I can't wait to get back there... :smilebig: Unfortunately, as can be seen on the last picture, I've had a minor issue with the bumpy track and the front brakes, which caused the front wheel to lock up and the bike to fall down...:crying: But then I went back with my scratched knee and torn pants to finish the day! ;)

It was at circuit Ste-Croix, in Quebec, Canada. The center of the track was flooded of about 3 and a half feet of water as can be seen on 2 pictures...

Too bad about your tumble. Upgrading your suspension and tires will help prevent that from happening again. :thumb:

Yes I used rattle can to spray the engine and it seems not too bad. I was really happy when I realized that I was able to hang with zx-10's and 636, and was faster than sv650s... I know it was more about the pilot but.... :woohoo:

The real thing is, next time I'll get frame sliders and race fairings. I really need to get friendly with my suspensions adjustments in order to make it work perfectly. And on the track my brake lever came spongy which means oil began to boil into my calipers... I had fresh Castrol Dot 4 brake oil but I'm gonna flush and get Motul RBF600. There's a big difference I heard of...
