Old guy takes 900SS/SP to the track...
Been 13 yrs since my last track day -had a couple kids- bought a house- you know- grown up stuff- but finally made it back out and went to Chuckwalla in the desert east of Los Angeles and had an amazing day- the track is fantastic- I installed the new Ohlins and raised the ride height about 3/4 inch- feels great and turns in better but now I need to get the front end equally sorted to get it perfect. Was a Ducati owners day and saw a nice mix of bikes- the newer machines where amazing to watch- Mine was the oldest by far which surprised me- 13 yrs ago I used to see more of the old carby's ripping around- it got lots of love from the young dudes though
. It has that wonderful mid corner stability I remember -get's blown away on the straights but my old self was able to make up time and pass a lot of folks in the corners. 3/4 of the way through the day it started weeping oil from the left side around the bottom where I could see a little split in the gasket I never noticed before... so i'll need get that sorted and in the meantime I'll be perusing craigslist for Panigales and RSV4's lol. That Aprilia is so damn sexy.
