Went to the track yesterday. I wasn't intending on running my bike at all. It's a stage 1 for Christ's sake. After some prodding, I was finally convinced to get out there. I have never been on a track before, car, motorcycle, golf cart (you laugh, we did it), nothing. $10 all day, I finally said OK.
First time out, I stalled out.
Second time - fifth time ran fairly consistent 8.0-8.2 @ 83-85.
Sixth time - saw a Busa rider leave out right before I did. Think I was stuck in "holy poop, that's fast" mode and stalled out again.
Seventh time - Ass end went 45 degrees to the track, let off, finally grabbed and ended up a little longer than my previous runs @ 9.3.
After that, I decided I was done. It's fun to see what it will do and outrun HDs where there can't be any debate about road conditions or curves. But after the track getting slick, it's not worth dropping the bike for bragging rights, those tend to go away if you end up trailering the bike off to a shop anyway.
