Great time, bummer about the low-side.
Just got back from an awesome track day at Arroyo Seco. Unfortunately it was a two day event! Day two was cold and windy. I didn't mind too much until I low-sided. I'm fairly confident that it was too much throttle before I got the bike off of the edge of the tire.
Day one was fantastic, though. 70 degrees and sunny. A little windy in the afternoon, but awesome! There were some crazy-fast ducatis out there in the morning. Rumor has it they were WSB spec. The track owner was trying out the new Michelin Power Ones and he was insanely fast as well.
I got my knee down for the first time and I was feeling pretty comfortable at the end of the day. I should've called it a weekend at that point.
So now I've got some fiber-glass work to do and I need a clutch lever, stator cover, clip-ons, and some replacement Sato rear-set parts.
Overall, it was worth it! I hope I can round up the parts before the next track day!
Did you see what God just did to you?
