First Track Day

Had an opportunity to go to the trackday today and it was definitely worth it. Started out at 530am and road to College Station (Texas World Speedway). You quickly see how slow a Guzzi 750 is when you hit the straightaway. Tuono, Dorsoduros flying by like you are standing still.

Going through the corners I was quick to find the lines and felt smooth, it is nice to have room to corner.

But it was my first track day and I had a great time. Saw a few people I knew, got to ride a Zero electric bike and a Tuono (the power was awesome).

Three guzzis hit the track
V7 Breva
Centuaro
V7 Racer
AF1 and Aprilia did a great job hosting.

You are correct about that. Learning how to correct on those slippery snakes was interesting. Turn 10 was the most difficult for me. Came in a bit hotter than I should have but I did learn quickly that getting the bike leaned over to make the turn was not as bad as i originally thought.

Would have been nice to see another guzzi. AF!supplied all the guzzi riders with a guzzi flag.
