OK... so... my friend and I have always played leap frog OF SORTS,in our lifes. I started riding motorcycles, he started riding motorcycles, I started track days, he started track days (with limted success, 3 days 3 crashes), I got a new kawasaki zx6, he got a 2001 ducati 999, I got a new 1098, and finally he just picked up a 999r!!!!! The bike needless to say is unreal, and now my 1098 (albiet with a million upgrades) seems to be shaded by that 999r! What gives? There is no way I could step it up to a 1098r, but o man what a dream it would be! Just venting!!!
