This ^^

I moved from my gsxr 600 to a zx10r at gss and loved it! It took a few laps to get a hang of the bigger bike but once I did it was insane.

I think it depends on your personal style/goals, those who love top-speed and big sweepers hate it. If, like me, you love tight technical corners, getting off the bike, and cows (oh wait, they fixed that I think ) you will love GSS.

I ride my stock geared CBR1000RR at GSS. It's 2nd gear in the tight sections, 3rd gear on the front and back straight, maybe 1:02 or 1:03 a lap, 125 MPH max speed, an absolute blast.

On a Ninja 250, race prepped, 1:07 or 1:08.

On a Sumo, DRZ400SM or WR250X, about 1:12 a lap


Just watch a (famous) video, fast forward to 4:44

slow people don't like GSS.... GSS is the type of track that separates the "I'm so fast on a 60' wide track with curve radii in the 1,000's" vs say "I'm moderately fast on a 30' wide track with 50' radii".

yep. can't wait to hit the pipe again Timmy!

I have ridden my ZX10R there and actually had a blast. The going back and forth between the Tard and 10 made it "interesting" but still laughed my off.
