I was running 1:51's on my CBR F4 and just put a little too much upper body off the bike...lost concentration and busted my ass! Happened right after The Launch. I think these were some of my slower laps too as there weren't many people on the track at the time. Man I miss the track.
I've done two trackdays, and both have been at msrh. I'm a bit biased, by way of never going to other tracks, but I really like it. I'm running 2:15's give or take.
Oh man... The launch. I hated it the first time out, but on my second track day, I loved it. The lefty coming out of the launch into the key hole is where I was leaning my lowest.
Speaking of the cbr f4.... I have one that needs quite a bit of work, but with no title, I'm gonna either make it a track bike or a stunt bike. View attachment 79906
I feel like if I made it "track" ready, I would prolly perform better being that it wouldn't be my everyday rider, and I would be less worried if I crash it or not. Bringing my r6 out, I reckon that's my biggest fear. Crashing my everyday vehicle and being screwed out of transportation. But damn does the Ol r6 look good in her track attire...
The last pic was taken coming out of the launch into the lefty before the key hole
My F4 was the second bike I had on the track. The first was my daily driver Buell 1125R and although it was much faster and way more precise than the F4, I was definitely faster on the F4. It's the exact reason you're thinking. The fear of wrecking my daily held me way back.
I slapped race take offs on the F4 and didn't look back. Tons of fun.
I modified the F4's rear suspension though and made some other modifications. Check out my track bike build here. I'll post a link in a minute and it goes through everything.
Thanks bud. I'll definitely be checking it out...
First time I did Msr I was on a buddies 04 Gsxr 750 track bike. I've been told it was bored to 800, but don't know for certain. I guess the fear of wrecking someone else's bike was strong with this one... My slowest lap times were put down with this pig of a bike....
I was told that for 1500, that Gsxr could be mine.... Always a possibility.
