Regarding the "lap" of the track. I was right behind the "follow me" guy on my ST. I hit over 80 mph on parts of the track staying with him. This was about 6:15.
My daughter didn't get to come with me so I sold her tickets about 6:45. The guy didn't want her lap ticket so I went back at 7:43 just as they were about to close. It was the guy and me alone on the track. He was game and I saw 100 mph on that lap!! Laughed in my helmet like Jeremy Clarkson the whole time.
