I did my first track day at Grand Sport Speedway with Fastline Motorcycle School.
Once the instructors got my ass off my nice big seat and started working the body position I didn't grind the pegs at all, it felt great, the bike felt great with me, it was a timeless moment, like flying. I didn't think about work once. Perfect!!!
if your interested
I really thought I knew how to ride too....if you have never done a track day you should
Also, I earned my track time by corner working for the motorcycle school for a day
I'm running Michilin Pilot Road 2ct's, love them on the road, and they were plenty sticky on the track for me. It's my second set and I will buy them again. The tire guy at the track suggested about 31psi for both front and rear (for the track only). The tires did get much warmer than they ever did on the street. I never measured the "warm" pressure but they told me it should be about 4psi more than what it is "cold."
Everything else is stock. I had the suspension adjusted by a pro at the track. It cost me $30 but was well worth it. I don't know what all he changed, but if sure felt better in the corners afterwords.
Breaks were fine. Most of the breaking was engine breaking anyway.
the versys is a fun track bike
