1st trackday with my F3

took it slow though...
still in the break in period. just over 600 Miles.

sorry if its painful to watch. I need to find a better place for the camera..

Maybe just a higher mount?
Glad you had fun.

There were a few MVs at my track day at Road America this Monday

That is probably the most unsafe motorcycle track that I have ever seen

That's a very cool track.
Mike you need to rev the bike out a lot more, you're short shifting far too much.
Have faith, it's a good tool.

I was mainly speaking of Palmer. Thompson looks unsafe but not at much as Palmer.

donsy,
100% right..
it felt to me like it didnt have much power past that point..
ill try to let it go longer.. i did do that 1 lap and hit the rev limiter.

is the factory setting for the reve limiter at the right place?
if so ill try to remember where it is and bring the RPM up close to that point before shifting.
I know im def shifting too soon.. for some reason, to me it seemed like it stopped pulling after 11k

i could only get into 4th gear on my gsxr before i hit the break markers.
