Am I nuts? Anyone done it? Taking my 07 R12RTP to a trackday this Monday. Debating on tires to run - Its on Pilot Road 3s right now that are coming off, Im debating a track/race tire but not sure how the extra weight will deal with that. Any ideas or other tips anyone? Anyone else done this?

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to run my RT on a Nascar track at Watkins Glenn in New York. My self and approx. twenty others were hell bent on thrashing each other for the win. Thing was, there was no race, just alot of testosterone. I was running with PR3's and had a great time. Opening up the beast on the straightaways was a treat, and leaning into the curves an exilarating feeling to say the least. But.....I don't ride like this as a rule, my RT is a daily driver and not a race bike, and I still had to drive it home, preferably in one peice.
If you have the chance and feel confident in your abilities, I say give it a try.
The five laps I drove was worth the price of admission...
