First Track Day



Cleaned up the F4 for my first track day, is that a bad omen?

Please don't clean

Thumbs up

Looking good

I have been guilty of not shining my bike up between track days

But, If time permits, I do. Takes away from the other rough edges my old girls got

I'll bet your going to have the only MV at the track, so may as well let her shine. You could get some attention

Bad omen, nah, dropping your bike getting it off the trailer, now that would spook me a little.......

Just ride within your limits, in the right group with similar level riders, don't do anything stupid, and you'll have the time of your life.

Is this your first track day? Or just your first on the F4?

Either way, have fun

Oh, and we like pics

Might wanna grab a file and sharpen the footpegs a bit, or stick a set of knurled pegs in there. The stock set is slippery. I've almost fell off my horse a few times just riding around town before getting grippier rearsets. Oh, and make sure there's no oil catch rule in your club/class if you don't have the belly pan. Have fun.

Enjoy the day mate. If it's your first one, stay calm and breathe.
I've never heard of a track day where you have to worry about oil catch rules on the belly pan on a track day?
Pictures are required too...........
