Doesnt matter....ride your own ride...dont worry about other ppls speeds....when you "actually" do a track day you will find out for yourself and what your comfortable with...


there are also a billion threads on this subject as well at the track vs street thread you started.....

GPS indicated top speed just before braking into T1 on an s1000rr, turning :44's, is 165mph.

I don't know about T7 but I could pull the data.

If you are looking at the speedo you are not looking in the right place, plus on the odd person looking at their speedo you have to take in account a vast majority of us are not running stock gearing which means our speedos are already way off. Put tape over your speedo and go from there.

at the speed you need to be going in there you can not look at your speedo.

How many feet per second are you traveling at say 150 ? edit 220 feet per second. 165 = 242 fps

turn 7 no joke either.

That was my thought....if you're looking at your speed, you're doing it wrong.
