We’re home safe and the bikes are relatively intact, no harm has come to the Honda, but a few of the lads suffered from mechanical and “wear” issues. It’s incredible how tired and beat I was after each day at the track. But it was extremely fun and worth every soaring muscle.

The Hornet (919) did reasonably well on the track all though the track is a bit faster than what I had tried previously and that was a bit too much for the suspension at times. But I think I would have felt it less had I been a better rider. I’m determined to have some more track time on the Honda to reach a point where it’s me riding the bike to its capacity, and not the other way around.

Having a good day at track PoznanSome moments I found the right rhythm and position on the bike, and came out at much higher speeds. So I know it can be done with the right concentration and focus. One of the lads told us the he heard a track day veteran say that you should never ride at more than 90% of your capacity. Sounds like a good idea to me; there will be lots of tracks days, and speed will come eventually, it’s the choosing and holding the line that matters.

    There is nothing like the feeling of “nailing” a turn. I would expect that that feeling is multiplied when on a track where you can concentrate and not worry about dbris, drivers, animals . . .
