Technically a thread here, but no one has really replied. http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=349995

It's a CMRA race weekend in NOLA, so it will mostly be non racers this time at cota.

I'm running L2b on Saturday. Going to ride the Hyper this time. May switch to the 996 at some point. Feel free to park next to me and hang out. I can pm you my info.

I saw one at MSRH last month with a L1 sticker on the front. I really wanted to see that thing run around the track. Although MSR is a little tight and technical for that bike.

Well, it was wet.......very very wet, but still had a good time. I learned the track much more today than I have before.

Nice meeting up with you, yesterday.

My Minnesota neighbors have already text me to say the track is almost dry already. Hope they have a better day today, than yesterday.

I feel I got my money's worth regardless of weather. I learned just as much yesterday as I did from my first two trackdays

Exactly. I learned a lot about the track yesterday and how to corner in those conditions. Looking at my rear tire today, I did actually get some heat going.

All I heard was the weather was wet, and some folks overcooked it and crashed.

Is there something I'm missing?

I had some slip n slide action...

Frame slider did its job, well. Only rash was on the exhaust and tail fairing, both VERY minor.
