Looking good dude 8) That is getting down real good. That is one advantage of the real NASCAR pipes, you can get that good lean into the left turns. On mine, I chew up the pipes first, they are both flat on the bottoms.
That is a very cool photo Lamont. What is the deal? Is there a couple of photogs standing around taking pics of all the riders and then selling them on the internet??? If so, that is a very creative and original way to make a buck.
I was looking at that photo again. It really isn't much of a lean angle and looking at that car tire there really isn't much rubber on the ground either. If there was a car tire on any other bike that you could lean down you would be in deep do-do. Doesn't look like it was made for the twisties.

I had the same problem with my pipes. Hated that, because the bike bounces back when you hit with the pipes. After adjusting the rear shocks about 4 full turns stiffer, I have a much better ride and hit now with the (flexible) footpegs first. A LOT better.
Just did the gap three more times and guys are flipping out yea I'm draging pretty good but I'm leaving a 4 to 5" wide patch about 4 to 5' long when I throttle it out of the corners. I even had some sport bike kid say that was the coolest thing he ever saw and he got it all on video Theres a lot more meat on the corner of that tire than it look. :wink:
