Did my first track day on the XSR900. Broadford track, near Melbourne Australia. Perfect day, about 25 degrees C. Bike was fantastic! I was hitting over 200km/h and occasionally scraping pegs. What a hoot! Overall only about half a second slower than on my last bike which was an Aprilia RSV4.


View up the main straight to turn 1.

Looking good!
Tire is shredded!

Also agree with taking those feelers off. My very first ride on my FZ I dove into my first right turn and scared the shit out of myself. A combo of hard turning and spongy rear shock made that peg hit the deck. Was terrifying haha.

Impressive if lapping that close to an RSV4 times. I trackday a Tuono V4 - it's so accomplished - never had a trackbike that lit up the rear around 70mph in 3rd out a corner - seriously quick bike!
