Since I know the motto - no pictures then it never happened -

It was an absolute blast!!  Started in novice group since was my first track day and after first session they bumped me up to Intermediate which had a few of the other Intermediate's scratching there heads and asking what I was doing in there class with this big bike...  but I quickly quieted allot of them as I passed them on the track :)  I still have a ton of learning on body positioning and running the right lines consistently etc..  but it was a blast and the Concours while about 250lbs heavier then most of the bikes on the track certainly held it's own.

So, what will you change next time?  If it's any consolation, what I see in the pics is the norm, something that can be corrected with more days on the track ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the vote of confidence..  I need to lead with my head so the rest of my body will follow and do so before I am in the corner.  As well as run tighter lines...  but I was not sure if my lines can be as tight as the 600cc sport bikes due to the extra weight I am carrying...   or if it is a faster line for me to take a little more wide then they take.
