Thanks, the paintjob came with the bike. I believe it's supposed to be one of the NASCAR paint schemes. Cool looking, though. Unfortunately I just got back from another round at Loudon this past weekend with the left side thoroughly rashed up, so we'll see if I can repair it without losing the paintjob.

The second pic was taken by a camera mounted a few inches off the ground and I believe it was triggered by a motion sensor while the photographer was in other spots snappin'. Pretty neat setup.

Hey I took that shot...that is back in '91 from the old turn 11 at Sears. I was using a Minolta camera back then.

That is Pat W. on that bike....It is a Ninja 600 that he had painted like the Kawi KR-1.
