My dealer in Ajax Ontario (Endras BMW thank you James & Adam) had a track day at Mosport last Thursday.
What a great day having 2 racers show us what we can really do with the bikes. If you haven't taken a track day, I urge you to do it.
There were 2 1200GT's, 1 1300 GT, 2 1000R's, 2 800 Sports, 1 1300S, 1 R1200S and a 250 Ninja.
Never a scary moment and I built up speed slowly (the instructors kept us in check at the beginning & show us the proper lines etc.) to the point where I had gone past the Metzler Elephant lines on the tires and scraped the pegs!
No mishaps took place and everyone had the time of their lives.
I have taken 20 of these courses since BMW introduced them here (the K100RT was good, but the 1200GT is unbelievable!) and have also continued with the FAST Racing School, various track day events (Ducati Club & GP Bikes) and recently the Lee Parks Total Control Program at the Americade Rally.
They have made the world of difference to my riding, my confidence and safety.
Try it ... you'll like it!
I'd love to hear comments from those who have tried their bikes on the track.
We have fantastic machines that are capable right out of the box for track, street and touring cross country.
My legs and hands were a little sore afterwards, but you still can't get the smile off my face.
