It was a blast! plan to do it again. This was put on by my dealer. Had the bike up to 135 mph on the straight section. It is a fairly new track so very smooth. The track does have some good elevation changes to keep things interesting.

That's so awesome!!

I've only driven a car at The Ridge track... need to take the moto out there one of these days.

Have you done ORP in Grass Valley, Oregon?

With the center stand on! Awesome. Keep those toes up high on pegs in the turns.

I haven't been to Grass Valley but did have a track day several years ago with my BMW 325i and Pacific Raceway.

Yep the center stand removed. I did that shortly after getting the bike to make it easier to get the side stand down.

I dragged my toes a couple of times. I had to make sure to keep my foot on top of the gear shift lever when leaning into the turns on the left. The tires are the stock Scorpions and they held the lines well. Shredded the sides a bit though.
