    That's why I sold my track bike. LOL It got to be too expensive and I hated chancing the weather. But I miss it some times.

    yep i remember those days quite well.. some of my bolts are still rusted from that shit... i just changed my fairing bolts out..

    i don't mind chancing the weather.. cuz when its good it outstanding and most of the time it is good.. the trick is always do 2 track days because chances are one is better than the other.. and if they are both good you can lay back the first day work on some lines.. practice tricky corners.. and then go balls out second day.. my fastest lap times have always come on the second day..
