I enjoyed the ride there much more than the parade laps. Those corners with the decreasing radius weren't great for my first track experience.

I love your ride, clean the rims! I know it's a pain in the neck on the old bikes, i used to have a vf 750 1985 with gold rims and...!

About your first track experience, as long as you want to try again, you are fine

Highly encourage you who haven't done a track day, to do so. Gaining confidence in what you and the bike can do will only make you a better rider. I'm still slow but have much more confidence in my abilities as a result of riding the track.
