So nice to know there are a bunch of 'experienced' gents still riding/tracking performance bikes. At 57, I'm typically the old guy of the bunch. Big shout out to those of us over 50 who continue to chase their youth on two wheels !

Track days are so great. People who have not done it just don't know what an experience it is. I took Kieth Code's California Super Bike school section 1 & 2 when I was 72. Wish I had done it years ago. Still enjoy my R bike at 75 years now. But my favorite is my K1300S bike, though it is fast it is not as quick as the S bike.

i had a 1300s 2014 in black loved it just a bit heavy to move about.

Yeah, it is a big bike, my Buick roadmaster (super comfortable for 8 or 10 hour days) for long trips. You had a good year of bike.

I've been doing track days for nearly 40 years now. Here's a shot from last December, when I was only 53 years old:

Just keep your head held high
Kiss your fist and touch the sky
