thanks
reservations as in just registering online or by calling MSR Houston. they have power outlets, restrooms, and patrick has a good write up on what to do or bring for a track day that is a sticky here in the racers/track section.

dont forget a chair and plenty of water.

If you guys are hurting at your ages, wait til you're 61. I did Saturday's track day and just signed up for the 8th. Age is just a state of mind. (I wish)

Me and CarbonR1 are the same age.

You'll be Ok out there - I just don't get any exercise.

If you're legs and abs are sore the next day then that's probably a good thing. If your arms are sore then you must be doing something wrong out there.

Track question - I feel like the RPMs are always too low in the corners. Can I go down a tooth on the front sprocket to get the RPM's up a little higher? The 600F3 doesn't get going until you hit 7K RPM.

I dropped a tooth on the front sprocket on my 87 VFR. Wow! What a difference 1 tooth makes. The front end actually wants to get in the air now. It was super easy and cheap.

if u think u r in right gear, then drop a tooth. but if u stay in higher gears too much, then it will cost u 0 bucks to start using more of lower gears.

and if u plan on changing sprockets, better take some professional advice. Depending upon ur bike and which tracks u wanna do for, they shld be able to tell u the right settings
