Talking Calif Speedway track day

I just completed my first ever track day at Calif. Speedway on the AMA course on my KTM 990 Adventure. It was great even though it was a little hot. I rode with Fastrack Riders Association. You have to do the novice school if you've never done this before. They give you basic info to get you up to speed safely. All but the first session is done in the slow rider group. Some guys, and girls, are not that slow so you have to get used to not having any mirrors and people zooming by. You get lots of track time. I did 9 20 minuet sessions which ended up being 114 miles. I could have done one more but I just couldn't do it . I ended up showing 120 mph on GPS. It's a fast track but very safe since if you mess up there is ample hard runoff in most spots. I tried several . I was on the biggest/heaviest bike but I was far from the slowest rider so I showed some people that adventure bikes are still pretty quick . Maybe best of all I got this great picture:

It was fun and I'd recommend it as I plan on doing it again.

The picture or the trackday?
Picture 11X14 $35
Trackday for Cal Speedway $269
Novice School $115
Ktm Motard leather suit $450

Time had at the track.....Priceless

Other tracks are less money, but may not be as much fun or safe for a newbie. http://www.fastrackriders.com/prices.html
