Check out Team Hammer trackdays at Daytona. March 1, 2007 - www.teamhammer.com

I can't recommend the structure, organization, or with anything about how the day is managed, but it is an opportunity to ride Daytona.

I went to the Team Hammer session at Daytona a couple years back. I wasn't too impressed with their "class". But you can just do a straight track day with them for a day and I'm sure that would be just fine. They DO break up the riding in a weird way, but like Jet said, atleast you'd get some track time! Weeee.

Take it easy on that track, those banks are intimidating the first time around.

+1 on the Team Hammer trackday and -1 on the Team Hammer class. If you have the bike and the balls, you can go as fast as you want! A couple of us will be there on the 1st. See you there???

"Kink" as in the connecting rod snapping and the bike coming to a screeching halt? Hopefully not. Fresh motor with Wiseco 810cc forged pistons & bulletproof bottom end.

Kink as in winding out 5th and leaning it over to keep the bike on pavement!

Give the Full Course a VIR a try sometime. It's got even longer "straights". edit ** or what Lord Duckhunter said**
