my first track day willow springs big track

woow!! it was amazing ! it was willow springs the big track just yesterday!. i realized how great my machine was!! my buddy in his cbr1k thought he was bad cuz he kept passing me on straights but the first turn would come up and i would pass him up!.. i think i found a new hobby.. will post some pics up soon. and i ran with pilot powers held up great on turns 120+. i just felt them stick. didnt think i would feel comfortable knee dragging but it felt just right

edit : sorry for taking for ever to get back up.. almost a week..busy working no good pics at all.. photagraphers sucked that day haha 1st pic was my first lap going into turn 3 warming tires up... was draggin knees a few laps later. and the other bikes in the pic were my 2 buddys i went coming out of turn 4b.. cbr1k behind me haha but dam that bike on straights! the last pic was after my first session first time i dragged kneees... fun.. got destroyed

Re: my first track day willow springs big track

i went with trackdaz and it was 150 plus gas. i only ran 91 oct fuel i was gonna run better fuel but it slipped my mind till it was to late to get it. i just filled my bike up and used 6 gallons after that. and for tires i ran with just regualr pilot powers and they were sticking. and i was doing 120 +on turn 8 100+ on turn 2 dragging knees. i got hooked up on tires only 100 bucks. its worth it man.. i have an 07 r6 about 8800 miles

HOW'D YOU GET PILOT POWERS FOR $100
AND CAN YOU USE THEM AFTER THE TRACK OR ARE THEY TOAST?

Re: my first track day willow springs big track

my friend had a new set laying in his garage with tags still on them for his bike but got totaled. and they had about 300 street miles on them but the edges are pretty toast maybe one more track day. the middle has many more miles left in them. looks new in the middle.
