    The Mission

    I finally made it to the track (Mission), and it was a super blast!
    A little wet, but still fun!
    With the new 40 over law, it is a great way of being able to let loose, and not have to worry, plus it is a great place to work on building skill and setting up a new bike.
    I'm playing with the new editing software, so my video is a little rough around the edges.

    Nice one man. I sold my street bike because I can't lose my DL, sad to see it go but that's life can't risk it. Bought a konker ksm 200cc for the street/offroad trails then I am going to pick up a track bike for next year. Hope to join you all next time.

    04 Kawi Z1000,
    You learn SO much more by riding in the rain. But you'll never commit when you know that you're riding your street bike. This is why a lot of regular track riders, be they racers or just occasional track day buffs, go for a dedicated track bike which they not worry about dropping.

    The great thing is that it doesn't need to be the latest and greatest. Get some 5 to 10 year old track bike that is sorted out and spend a few bucks getting the suspension set up for your weight and you're golden.

    And virtually everyone that rides track on a regular basis will tell you that suddenly they found themselves toeing the line on the street and not caring that they weren't rippin' around. Ride the track for a while and showing off on the streets just isn't as important because you KNOW where the real deal is.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
