First trackday.

Well it is happening, I am starting another addiction this Monday October 1st. Trackdays. The wife, who hadn't been supportive of the idea of a track day, decided to do some research, talk to done of my racing buddies, call some trackday providers and proceeded to buy me some trackdays and a GoPro for my birthday.

I was a previous addict to automotive trackdays, so I know how it works. Do one and you won't be satisfied...

The first track experience, moto wise, will be at Thunderhill, very excited, can be a very fast and thrilling track. First time I ever ran a trackday was here in reverse.

Well post some pictures and videos after I am finished editing them. Very fun stuff!

Anyone here ever ran their SV1K at Thunderhill?

I have raced my SV1000, an SV650, a GSX-R1000, and my RD400 there. Great track. Brutally fast on big bikes just after the Cyclone. There are a couple of sweeping lefts that are blindingly fast that take you up the hill in the back! Take it easy through the Cyclone, loads of crashes through there. The flat right hand corner (t3?) can be tricky at speed too

Great track though. I can't wait to get back there

Was awesome, had tons of fun, ended up dropping 15 seconds off my initial time, and am definitely going again.
