Bike from my first track day!!!

Only did the two 20 min sessions in the morning since it was free. Had a great time. Left the house at 5am and go to the track around 7am. Unloaded and got her checked in. Lot of attention and the inspector did not want to have to place a sticker on her. Had a blast on the track. Never got a knee down but I did scrape the toe of my boot once. Here is a pick of the tires. I only got into one corner alittle hot and had the rear end . While trying to slow down. Had to take the corner alittle wide but not off the track. Will do more in the future
