Never really appreciated the brake fluid change thing until my last track day at Palmer in blue group. Was really cooking the brakes and had the lever get mushy on me. Pitted, let the bike cool down and it was back to normal. Interesting part was the fluid wasn't even terribly dark but it was about a year and a half old. I think part of the darkening process is actually brought about by UV exposure (at least that's what I've been told before).
Same thing happened to me earlier this year. Not confidence inspiring to have squishy brakes halfway through a race.
