GSS CLOCKWISE....

I ran GSS today CCW and took me a while to get a good flow going...

HOWEVER, when I ran it CW, I picked it up quick, and everything seemed to flow alot better. Maybe its just me... But, I tell ya what, Ive never dragged FAIRING untill today...lol That track is sooo smooth Ive got the confidence to lay it over and ride on my leg/knee more and more.


That track is sooooo smooth, it sanded off all the roughness that MSR-H and TWS (Texas World Speedway) put on my tires. Dont get me wrong, I love the other 2 tracks alot as well, they all have they're own "character".

Only rode CW in jeans on the "parade day"... but I loved it!

My only question is... coming down the front straight (along the wall) do you have to do most of your braking BEFORE the quick left, or is there time to do it after the left and before the 5mph right?
