To prevent people from completely changing what they wrote. I guess people were changin posts so others couldn't read what they wrote initially.

Well, you know my name and it personifies me very well but, I am a bit tired of people showing up in the racers lounge with all the answers to questions about the track and they themselves have yet to do a race or track day.

I haven't noticed that.

But, I'm not someone who just listens to advice from one person anyway. I'll ask 10 people the same question just to hear their opinion on something.

Don't know if you are referring to me but uh, this thread wasn't necessarily about the track. Just corners and I'll be the first to admit I have alot to learn...if you weren't referring to me, disregard this post.

It was a general ascertion to this thread and your street corner advice is not exactly good track advice. Sorry, but it is not and should not be.

I never made suggestions, only mentioned how my bike reacts and offered what it is that I do (on the street)...

Noctem has done a couple of track days, and does a good job.
I would still say that you have to learn the track, listening to other people may give you an idea but everyone rides a little differently, has a little different setup, tires etc etc.
