Chris and Riley trailered their bikes (wimps) from Montreal and Cuz'n Charles road from Toronto like a real man. Fantastic event and we all learned a lot. The event is not about lap time but more about proper cornering technique. The organization was fantastic and the instructors on the track and in the classroom were top notch.

Awesome Players! Woo!

Inspiration there. I have all the pieces in place to take my 800gs to the track and I keep thinking, 'why?' I think 'why not' is more where my head is at after watching this.

Based on the experience you guys had that day, do you think it's possible for someone with track riding experience to get their knee down on the 800gs? Has anyone ever done it on this bike before? I've looked but I haven't found anything.
