    Thunderhill East (California) 3 Days!

    Just packed up to head out tomorrow afternoon for Thunederhill East.  Alternating days with the D765 and the RC 390 race bike.  First time at this track with full data acquisition (AiM EVO4S).  Got a couple of buddies joining me.  This will put my count at 6 for the season so far.  D765 is sports the SC3/TD and the 390 wears the TDs.

    Did you measure the length of the bikes before you chose that pick up truck  :084: :152:

    Absolutely!  The F-150 Super Crew with the longest bed option (6.5 feet) + heavy duty tow package works perfectly.  Two Pit Bull trailer restraint systems, tailgate closed, travel trailer hitched!

    Just joined.  Hilarious. I have the same bikes.  KTM390 RC CUP.  Where did you get the fairings for your 765?

    Awesome!  Iíve since sold the 390 and replaced it with a Ninja 400.

    My fairings are from MotoXPricambi.

    I'm happy with them for the price.  It's not the same caliber of material as SharkSkinz or Armour Bodies (not as flexible) and with ~75 track days on them, mostly A group, I do have some hairline stress cracks in the tail piece.  I am ordering a new tail from Armour Bodies but will have to figure out getting it painted.  The nice part with MotoXPricambi is that they have a painted option available so when it arrives, all you have to do is drill out the dimples and mount it.  I opted for their higher-grade paint option which has held up exceptionally well.  At the time I ordered, it was ~$1100 USD delivered, premium paint, seat pad, and mounting hardware.  It's hard to beat, even if the quality of the material isn't quite as good as the Armour Bodies.  With the MXP tail, I did have to tap two bolt holes near the front of the subframe to mount it securely but if you have a drill/tap set, that's not a big deal.  The paint has held up exceptionally well with only a couple of chips, even after having lots of rubber and rocks flung at it at a pretty good pace.
