    Next time try to mount the camera more nearly level and don't babble so much.

    I did. Other than the riding position it's great on the track.

    I just got back from VIR (North) taking my 16 XSR for a nice track day. My bike has a Hindle pipe and a reflash from Vcyclenut. Otherwise, it is stock. I ran on brand new Q3’s at 30/30.

    The bike’s engine, clutch, transmission and brakes were superb. I ran with liter bikes much of the day and never felt overpowered by them, even on that sweet, funky front stretch. The suspension is sub-optimum for track use, but it sufficed. The bike certainly got out of sorts a few times when my throttle control was flawed or when my transitions for body position were clunky. I found it to be a non-issue when my technique was sound.

    The position given to a 6’2 rider with the stock bars is a biggest issue. The front is too light and the position too upright at high speeds. If I take this bike back to the track, some Woodcrafts will certainly be in order. I believe this one change would be the best value improvement to the bike for track use.

    I also am considering some tank grips, which might also be a benefit but they all look so freaking ugly.

    I agree with the woodcrafts comment. I failed to mention that except for my first time out, my bike has the GP cartridges and Penske shock. I spend 99.9% of time on the street, so my LSL bars stay.
