My current bike: '07 GSX-R750. Bought it new in early '08, traded my gsxr600 for it. A decision I still regret a little. Not getting the 750, but trading the 600. Should have kept it and still got the 750. This is my favorite bike so far of all the bikes I've had though. It can be a temperamental pain in the ass sometimes, but mostly it's a really great bike. Does everything I want it to do well enough that I haven't felt the need to replace it or buy anything new. I can ride it literally all day and still walk when I get off of it. It's fun, handles and runs well, has been reliable except for one issue with the reg/rectifier.

Mods:

ASV shorty levers
Galfer SS FR brake lines
Vortex clip-ons
Vortex rearsets
GP shift
Yoshi R-55 slip-on
PCIII USB (Mapped & dynoed by Dynoworks)
K&N air filter
Techspec tank grips
Swingarm spools
Woodcraft Frame sliders
Fender eliminator
Suzuki gel seat
Yoshimura case savers
Power socket
Gas cap mount ring for a Bag Connections tank bag from Twisted Throttle
I had the suspension set for me, for track riding, by Todd at TTR (RIP) when the bike was new. Still need to rebuild or upgrade it, which is what I said the last time we did this kind of thread.

An older pic, but it still looks pretty much the same



More recent pic all loaded up for a road trip

KTM supernonsense .. Absolutley barking howl at the moon madness in bike form .One of the first with the steeper steering angle for twitchyness and light switch throttle for ummm more twitchyness .. Akras , tank from an 06 , Pazzo levers a shorty for the brake standard length for the clutch, starter sprag upgrade done . ....the rest is top notch out the box and hard to improve .. brembos ,WP ,domino etc . Wants to stand on its back wheel , hates traffic , will punish you for unnecessary traffic light revs by coughing out and making you look a right twat . Handles like a sports bike , rides like a crosser ,clutch is only for getting going after that it much prefers clutchless shifts . enforced rest breaks every 70 - 80 miles . Total pig to do a service on till you get the sequence down . Full of orangey goodness ...Worth every penny , keep it forever bike )))))))))

OW-01 is so cool. - as I recall they only imported about 20 - and Reggie Jackson had one? Do I remember that right?

It looks looks like your RC30 is a Canadian or European model?

Reggie used to race an FZR1000 at Summit Point raceway with WERA back in the early 90's (I've been racing since 89). I don't remember him racing an OW-01 but that doesn't mean he didn't have one in his garage.
All three (RG500,RC30,OW-01) of mine are Canadian models -bought separately from different people as well. They never sold the RG500 or the OW-01 in the United States.
Racers had to do dealer trades with Canadian's to acquire them and they were expensive at almost twice the price of an RC30. MY RC30 is serial#23 and has about 7kms on it now. My OW-01 has about 2km on it. The US model RC30s are the only ones with RC30 on the tail. Rest of the world has the VFR750R sticker.

Yep, I knew the about the RC30 tail stickers - that is the first thing I noticed. I think the tank wing decals are a little different. The light blue body color looks like a different color on some of them as well. I know some of the the very early production bikes had tiny headlights compared to the later models. Mine has 47K miles. (I have always wondered if it was the record.)

http://www.sportbikes.net/photos/sho...&ppuser=117895 Here is a pic of the OW-01.

I am having trouble linking back to my member gallery images. Anyone know the trick to drop the actual pic in here as opposed to manually linking it. The insert image icon and the link icon both give a blank photo when I try to link back to photos I have already uploaded to this site. Any help would be appreciated.

I put as full termignoni on mine as well as factory jet kit which really opened it up. Penske Rear shock upgrade as the oem shock is not ride height adjustable to allow the use of a 17" rear from an RC45 and keep the correct geometry. I have a 3.5"front rim as well. (the stock one is a 3" and cups tires prematurely)Of course I keep all my stock stuff in boxes. Check out my u tube video at Road Atlanta during the Walter Mitty weekend in 2012. GOPR00571.mp4 - YouTube
The sound from the Go Pro camera is awful and does not do the RC justice. Keep in mind I am on 10 year old sport touring compound tires as well so I took it easy in the turns. The stock gearing was too short for Road A.
