Thanked 6 Times in 5 Posts
I had my second track day on Wednesday at Sydney Motorsport Park, it's a great day to have with a couple of mates.
This time I was on the smallest bike in the group but the CBR shows it strengths through the corners. It just sucks to be overtaken every lap on the main straight.
Last time out there was a Diavel that I would pass by the second corner, but having 6 times the power of the CBR, he could just roll on down the straight and leave me behind.

Thanks. Pretty similar to Aufitt - "Holy crap, I didn't know I could do this on a bike, weeeee..." and then "Where is my next target to pass?"

Its impressive how fast the transition goes from ecstatic disbelief to adrenalin saturated aggression. But the fun quotient just keeps going up.
