...To FINALLY do my first freakin' trackday already!!! :bigclap::biggrin: Time to see what the ol' girl's still got in her..... hopefully she doesn't blow up, hahah

But yea, some arm twisting was involved by my buddy being I wasn't planning on doing any trackdays until later this summer, but it was really too good of a deal to pass up. Basically a free trackday, it's pretty much just gonna cost me gas to get there and back (1400 mi round trip), and my buddy offered to help out with gas even just cuz he wants me to get out on the track with him so bad, lol. I've just gotta work tech/registration/whatever the dude running the trackday (a buddy of mine) needs help with for a little bit to cover the cost of the trackday, then the rest of the day is mine.

I must say, I'm pretty excited! Should be a good time :thumbup: Doing it at Palm Beach Int'l Raceway in West Palm Beach, FL on the 20th of this month. I'm gonna feel like a n00b all over again!

Congrats on you're first...might as well prepare for the addiction now.
1,400 miles round trip...damn, that's commitment! My helmet's off to you 3G!
I think it's not much farther for me to drive there from Texas....WOW!
I guess I won't be bitching about a 500 mile round trip anymore.

Take pics, and make sure to follow up in this thread and let us know how it goes.
Have fun, be safe.

PS: What kind of oil are you running in your bike/vehicle?

Yea it's a long drive for sure, but it'll be worth it.... free trackday, see lots of old friends (I've been wanting to get down there and see everybody again anyways), and apparently it means a hell of alot to my buddy to get me out on the track with him (he said he's prob more excited about it than I am, haha). My car gets 25 MPG towing, so it won't kill me too bad there. I'll def have lots of pics, and videos too I'm taking the GoPro (even though I'll prob be slow as s**t, lol). I'll post them all up when I get back

For oils, I currently have Shell Rotella T6 in the bike, but this is the first time I've used it... working great so far though. Previous to that was Mobil 1 10w-40 or 15w-50 (the car oil) since 5000 miles. The Accord has been running Mobil 1 5w-30 since 2000/260k miles (at 407k now). Good stuff!

I've seen some bmw's with 120k and I though that was great but 206k is very impressive. Can you post a list of what's been repaired on the bike, any issues, rebuilds, tips, oil type you use, etc.

Do you usually rev the bike high? I'd rather see you do 200k more than blow it up in one day.

u should send your videos to honda jered.
they might actually be impressed to see that you have your RR over 200K
i mean come on! a fawking RR lasted 200K thats incredible, says a lot of the machine,
but really it says more about the owner and the TLC you give your bike. kudos to you man, thats an accomplishment haha.

but really if i were you i would write a letter to honda and tell them your story, you might get some magazine coverage and perks.

if so i want in cuz it was MY idea!
