It looks pretty awesome if you ask me.
Anyone done this? If so what are your thoughts?
Rent. I rented a well set up Ducati 900ss for $250.
Otherwise, some track day events are pretty mellow and you can just go out and do your best, have fun and don't worry about it.
It's fun regardless of what you are riding. Actually the V-Strom acquits itself surprisingly well.
