I must say I am addicted to ride in circuit. Some say I fall in the category of “track day junkies”. Well, I simply can not help it, the “rush” of riding this fine machinery as hard as you can in a control environment is really enjoyable for me.
I started to do track day since 2007, with my new hobby of sport motorcycle. Got my self a Ducati 996 just for track day, the story is in this link. Being hooked by the experience and found out that the term “Superbike” means the bike not only cool looking but also super fast and powerful I step back a bit and learn track day using smaller bike in this link.
I finally sold the Duc and bought track only bike, the 2008 CBR600RR in this link. Off course some modification follows as in this link. If you want to know what I’ve done with the CBR follow this link.
For sure there were crashes, plenty on the smaller bike (this link) yet fewer on the Superbike (in this link) and Supersport (in this link). I do hope no more crashes in the future, but crash is inevitable and if I do crash hopefully nothing major! Both to my body and to my wallet!! :)
Track day is also the place for me to learn new technique, like reverse shift pattern in this link, downshift in this link or kneedown in this link to pivot steering in this link. Also about my routine before hitting the track as I share in this link.
I hope you enjoy reading my track day experience as I enjoy riding in circuit, do follow bellow link for more…
