The title about sums it up. Heartland Park is doing open track days for the first time, and it's great! I can say I am a little more sore than when I normally ride.

Anyways, the whole day went very smoothly, except for the stunt exhibition, where a rolling burnout turned into a broken leg for one of the stunt crew. The only bike down all day was a new 636, but it was ridden through the grass and dropped >20mph. All in all a great day, sunburn and all. I guess it's REALLY time for new tires now.

The track was actually in decent shape. Being a novice, I can't remember corner numbers :p. But coming from the last turn into the long straightaway (drag strip) is VERY slippery, a couple of the 'experts' were sliding halfway down the track, until they all started using concrete strip down the middle. Other that that, it was looking fairly nice. Hopefully not much else is going on this week, so the lines will be clean for you this weekend. We had nearly 50 bikes, and came out even for the money spent. We hope to do it again soon.
