Re: Made the podium
At some tracks it is an advantage to be on a 600 but there are some that are all about speed. Our 1000 is an ex AMA bike that has more HP than we need (more than I can use) but two of our members (myself included) are in their first year of endurance riding. The others are 16 year and 7 year experts. The 600 is easier on tires which is a plus since we cant use any kind of quick change setups on our bike for this class.
Dont get me wrong, the 1000 is reliable, three out of four members like the 600 better though.
I just checked the teams in our class. What I saw were two GSXR750s, an R1, and a GSXR1000 that finished ahead of us in the previous race. We are running an 05 GSXR600 and an 03 GSXR1000.
I think next year will be a much better year for us.
