Stock seat... Figured I'd prefer to have that as long as I can. Then eventually switch to the SBK tail with a foam pad...

It's night/day difference IMO you really get a great feel for what the rear wheel is doing-when your ready anyway

Yeah, wish I had that when I highsided. Course, from what I've gathered, just got that 2ct hot and pressure too high, which caused my highside...

Upgraded tires since then, and def cut my times down!

I just realized they don't setup apex or breaking marker cones. Definitely makes learning the track trixier.

No cones but they're are 3, 2, 1, little signs up for the few turns that need them... The rest you do just kinda judge yourself... It's a fun little track and I'm def getting faster each time out. Learning the tracks ins and outs, and getting more confidence helps... haha

Yeah he was fine. He just said the front end tucked coming out of the Esses onto the back straight... Wrecked the first lap, then raced the rest of the day sans fairings...

Can't remember his name, real good guy though, pretty fast too. This 2nd race I was back row, and they're were a few experts, and real fast Amateurs... A couple of them caught up to me and lap'd me last lap... But they are crazy fast!
