Im Addicted!

Did my first trackday in June at Nelson Ledges and ever since I'm addicted. Turned my 10 into a full time track bike after my first trackday ever. I can't believe I waited so long to try a trackday. Six years too long! Mid way through my first trackday my buddy and I got bumped into intermediate/open. Just did my second track day yesterday at Beaverun, and it was awesome! I was amazed that even at the beginning of the day and on only my second day i was lapping faster than everyone else out there and there was tons of traffic. I didn't realize I was turning the fastest laps of the group until one of the staff told me they had been watching me and were considering bumping me to Advanced. I guess they decided against it after I told them it was my first time on that track and only my second day. I was fine with that though! It got crazy towards the end of the day, lots of people going down. I ended up switching onto race rubber after my second session as the 10 was spinning like crazy driving off the corner. After a pretty big power slide and a near high side I decided to try some race rubber (bt003s) before the 10 got away from me. All I can say is WOW, what a difference! So confidence inspiring! At the end of the day I was beginning even to find the limits of traction with these. Pics are from the first trackday, no riding pics yet of Beaver, only the one I took in the pits with my buddies 6r in the background. I am still working on my form which I definitely made improvements on at Beaver but being 6'5" it can be a bit challenging. Basically, I'm hooked! Should have done this so long ago.

It is slowly bankrupting me! It is crazy fun though! Hopefully you'll be out there soon.

No doubt! I was pleasantly surprised. I guess those years of being a fully geared squid in the twisties was of some benefit! Still have my 919 for the street but its hard to ride the street after being on the track.

They were ebay fairings - kind of deceptive because they say "if you like catalyst fairings..." in their ebay add, but its catalyst formula. Fit and finish is ok and it definitely took a little work getting them fitted but for 300 I couldnt complain. Turned out pretty good. I have to wrap my exhaust and buy heat shield matting as i burned the lower fairing after the first session and had to remove it so it didnt burst into flames lol
