This is my first track in three years. I'm kinda nervous. I just bought my bike and my seat time on it has totaled about a weeks. I'm still super excited though.

Did anyone get my T1 lowside (session 2, L3) on 8/26 on video? I can't figure out what happened, I wasn't even at 60% of my usual corner speed through there and my line was good, lost the front and ruined my day. I had just been here 3 weeks ago, no issues, same setup. Curious if the folks behind me have a better angle so I can study learn from it... Thanks

The track was a bit slippery in the morning, I felt the front move in T12 while leading L1 round robin first time through. Tire temp, pressure? I always run my pressures a little lower in the morning because of the slower pace to put heat in them.

Anyone have an idea what a decent lap time is for a 250/300? I took the Ninja 300 (basically stock) out for the last 3 sessions and I have nothing to compare too, other than I'm slower than when I'm on my Ducati.
