    I was about to say the same exact thing.

    Those first experiences with the track were the best! Awesome times.

    Out of curiosity, what kinda mileage are you getting out of a tank?

    As for the street riding being bland issue... you have stumbled upon the reason that a majority of BoRn is angling towards sport tourers now. We aren't a bunch of old crotchety dudes, we've just realized that that riding has a place on the track, and that street riding is a different animal, with different enjoyable aspects. So we're trying to make the most out of those "other" aspects
    You're all a bunch of pussies.

    Yut ughhhh!!!

    God help me man - dare I ask what trailer you think would have too much tongue weight on the TSX?

Now that I've got a taste of that sort of rush I'm thinking everything else is just going to seem that much more bland. Can't wait to get back out there and I'd love to try it out on my other bike just to see how much of what I've learned can be transferred to a different scoot or a different track. Should be a blast at Palmer! (if I can swing it)
    TTD is probably the least douchey trackday experience you will ever have.

    And, yes, everything else won't compare now. Welcome to an empty wallet



    Finally, though Brendan will always officially be "Crash Bandicoot," I think you've taken the title away . Congrats on a successful first track outing.

    Before the K&N filter, ~90 before I was on "E" and blinking (<1 gal left). Now it's ~100 before I'm at "E" and it's not blinking (1 gal left). Picked up some noticeable mileage with that little change which is strange because there's no O2 sensor to trim the fueling...but it's definitely there. Checked it over 3 tanks and it was a consistent improvement with the same kind of riding.

    Was guzzling gas at the track though Went through a full tank plus a whole 5 gallon jerry can in two days

    Try riding with absolute cycle for the full bro experience, stay with Tony's for a more pleasant one.

    I'm not sure if I'm happy, sad, or other about this statement.

    I was gonna ask WTF does that mean?
    Is that where every riders body is better than their track skills?
    Get comfortable being uncomfortable.
