Track Bit

Hey MotoHouston, I've been reading this forum of a couple of weeks and thought I'd finally introduce myself. I recently purchased an '08 GSXR-1000 with the intention of using it as a track bike. In the past couple of weeks I've managed four track days and still no scratches on me or the bike. Still pathetically slow - today finally down to 2:02 in the reverse direction; 2:05's normal direction at MSR-Houston.

Great group of people here. Several motohouston members have helped me already.... Patrick and Brandon @ Motorcycles Unlimited for bike set up, race pads and leathers; Memo @ CycleGear for street leathers and stands; at the track Alan (a huge amount), Rory, GixxerBill, Doug, David and Larry (MSR instructor); and off track David and Brina.

Looking forward to meeting more of you at the track.

Ohh, and for what it's worth, I read some reviews stating that the Gix1K is easier and sometimes faster around a road course in the middle power setting.

When I get another track worthy bike, maybe we can turn a few laps together one day. I'd love to check out that white 996 some day. I've been looking for a good deal on one just like it.
