First track day of the year and first one on the R1 yesterday. It was fucking awesome. Bike has insane stupid amount of power. Had to really work to keep it in check. Was a little tricky getting used to it on the track compared to the R6 but it was so much fun. I was grinning ear to ear every session. Well except the first session when I had a panic attack and was telling myself this was the stupidest idea I ever had I should just sell the bike and quit riding - but that is my typical first session. Settled in after that and had some great control riders I got to follow. Lots of great video from yesterday.

I can't wait to get back out there. The bike is so much fun to ride on the track. Super challenging. On the street it is a totally different beast. I feel so comfortable riding it like it was made just for me. Figured track would be an easy transition after 5,000 street miles - WRONG! It was nothing like I expected. Exceeded every expectation I had.

Looking at possibly doing a twilight at Mid-Ohio on Sept 15. That would be awesome.

Sweet. I'd go if I already wasn't planning on a ride...
