A group of work colleagues occassionally take their sports bikes to Eastern Creek for "Ride Days".
One had to pull out at last moment for last Saturdays Ride Day, and I had the joy of filling in on TYC.
Now I'd never been on a track day before, but had heard tales of "others" who had taken their LT's out and had a ball.
And I have to say... SO DID I!!!!!
Very cool seeing the rev's redline, while screaming down the stright trying to hit 200kmh (which I think I did once, got it to 190+ a few times).
It was amazing experience learning just how well the bike handles at speed, really feeling the pulling power (especially when passing a few sports bikes),
and even throwing it into turns.
Now the LH pegs are scraped just like the RH ones!
I'm told TYC and I were pulling "consistent & respectable 2'15"s" around the track.
If you're interested seeing some .avi's and some pics of how the LT travels (I know, they're copyrighted, but I'm in the process of buying the originals from the photog...!) click on link below & download...
I'm still grinning...
