Great article, makes me wonder what if I hadn't ridden like such a squid on the 1000cc shoot-out last year...oh well.



And speaking of the shoot-out, is that the same Bandit I was riding for the 1st part? Hope you replaced the brake pads...and the clutch. Neat bike.

Great article! every year i say im gonna do a track school and every year i fail to get off my lazy Butt and "Just DOit!!!! I live about 4 hours from Summiit Point and I believe they have a couple classes each year. My problem is access to a suitable bike.My son wont let me use his GSX for a track day...hes afraid Id wad it. He thinks my tendency to override my skill level and crass at least once every MX race will carry over to roadraceing. At the risk of drawing flames,do you think taking a track class on a Buell Blast would be a reasonable thing to do or are they just too Damn slow to learn with? I know my wife's Blast is more fun to ride on the narrow twisty road I live on than my son's GSX,but Im not sure how that willtranslate to the track.

A good friend of mine and fellow WSMC member rode a Buell Blast to two-digit plate status and several podium finishes a couple of seasons ago. It seemed to work well for him (1:38 laps!) You'll be grouped with riders of similar ability and bikes of similar displacement in any rational track program so take that Buell Blast and have a blast!

I think the Buell should be great for a track day, a Blast!

Steve, Martin, Fonzie, I can only say that you all have mastered the single most important quality for any MO employee....



a preternatural capacity for self-congratulation.



I would tell you that y'all did a good job, but you seem to have that base more than covered. No wonder the freakin' vaseline ran out so fast!
