Smile First Track day on a VMAX.

I did my first track day with the Vmax at texas World Speedway with Ridesmart.The Instructors where great,They do a great job of criticing and showing riders how to improve there skills,
I had a blast.I was really impressed that my big heavy bike can lean and corner better then I ever imagine.[YOUTUBE][/alex track day on vmax].

Yeah, I felt like we all slotted into single file through there though. I didn't see the big deal really as I didn't see anyone freaking out or anything.
