Seems how its just a school/track day and not a race, I run my street bike in stock configuration and call it a day, but that's just me.

My friend ran her 300 bone stock at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and did just fine, and I ran a gutted 250 without any problems. Gotta watch the big bikes running hard in the straights though

What level are you running?

Just level 1. Still trying to get form and function down. I was very much in between gears running around the track when i ran in June. Now that being said! I'm sure was all me and not the bike. Was not sure if stock gearing was the way to run.

When I was on my buddy's 250, I have no clue what gear he had in there, but I do know spinning the out of that motor and leaving it at redline made all the difference.

Looks like I'll see you there. I'm running L1 again, too. I decided to stay there so I can ride with a friend of mine that will be a first timer.

We should be there Friday evening in my travel trailer. The last few times I parked behind Randy's trailer near the classrooms and that's where I'd like to be again.

I'll be on the bike in my avitar too, my ducati 996s.

I think there are some electrical outlets along the fence, but I'm not completely sure. I just run my (quiet) generator.

Yep, I have the Honda EU3000is. Previous to that was my even quieter Yamaha EF3000iSEB (it got stolen). Both run about 50db at 5'. You can talk in a normal voice standing right next to it.

Only uses 3-4 gal of fuel in 24 hours with ac on, too.
