chances are the bike can do alot more than you can. all your going to learn at the track is what can YOU do, but that is a good thing!

have fun out there, congrats.

Do you have any experience on bikes before this one?
Don't forget about the Longhorn trackdays right here in our own backyard. Buck (runs Longhorn) puts on a great day at the track. You can have fun, open her up "safely", and learn a LOT if you go into it with the right attitude.
The next trackday with Longhorn is Dec 9th. Email slowboattx@yahoo.com and Buck can get you signed up for it.

Don't forget to be prepared with all the right gear and equipment. Check this out...http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=16218
and this ...http://www.motohouston.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4310
and contact Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited (check his spot on the forum sponsors section for contact info) to rent any gear if you don't have any yourself.
