Ha! When my 400 was new I rode it there with just a set of Dunlop Q3+ on it. Still totally street legal. Best I could do was only a 1:35. :)

at the end of the day it's about having fun and getting home the way you left ! @sbk1198 did pretty good his 1st time out !! better than his parking job :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
Sounds like there鈥檚 a story there. :)

In my defense, that parking job turned out to be awesome! I just didn't know that it wasn't allowed, and nobody there to tell me that! LOL It was my first time. I will always try to park my trailer such that it avoids having to walk on grass or dirt if possible. At least I didn't show up at 9:05 in the morning after the rider's meeting like the HOST of this event...cough* @jetpilot01 cough*! ;) I showed up at 7 pm the evening before, and had almost the whole paddock to myself! LOL

But I had fun before the rain started in the afternoon. Managed a 1:28.4 riding by myself which I'll take for my first time there and having done about 25 laps in total only. With a new rear tire, a different sprocket and in a race, I have no doubt that 26s would be manageable. I just wish I would've got a bit more seat time on the ZX6R. Got like 4 laps because I went out at the end of the session, and then the rain started after that. There's always next time though!

So when is the next track day? Austin and I would love to be able to make it if we can. I keep telling him how much fun I had there and how the traction is like 200% better than what we are used to.
