Took my bike to my second and last track day of the season at Buttonwillow.

I've got a lot to work on but man is it a freaking blast being out there. This is the fastest I've ever ridden and it's only C group. I can't imagine the speed the guys in B and A group are hitting. Totally wild and amazing experience. And the bikes!! There are some sick bikes out there.

Welcome to the addiction, John! Yes, the pace of A & B groups will be a bit quicker, but don't underestimate the capabilities of the R3. Pay attention to your instructors, develop/practice good technique, and you'll make your way to A&B. Yes, we get big biked on the straightaway, but who cares! We don't go to the track for the straights, we go for the curves, and proper technique on a small bike will outperform poor technique on a big bike all day.
