Just did my first track day on the F4 1k. It was good. I did a personal best lap time with it (1:34). I'll have more to say in the "On the Track" section, but for now, here are some photos
I would say get TOTALLY comfortable and consistant with your current pace before you push any harder... great job though.altoon said:it's hard to draw really good comparisons to the R6 mostly because those bikes are in different classes (600cc vs 1k).
let me say that the brakes on the R6 are better. everything else, the F4 tops it.
my personal best was a 1:35, so i was only able to knock off 1 sec. however, my average lap time was WAY more consistent. with the F4, i was constantly doing 1:34's and 35's. it was easy to maintain that pace. on the r6, it took a lot more work.
i was a little dissappointed in myself. i was hoping for something in the low 30's (like a 31 or 32), but it was not to be. i had a chance at it, but a big slide in turn 2 spooked me and i backed off.
bottom line is that i need more time out there. this bike has all the capability i need for those kinds of lap times.
it's just up to me to find it in myself.
