PSA - check your bikes!
Check all of your bolts and safety wire that which is most critical. I was working on my bike last night and checked my levers on a whim - turns out both my brake and clutch lever bolts had vibrated loose enough that I could twist the bolt by hand. They weren't "falling off" but another day or two on a rough track with a lot of vibrations and I may have been leaving a rear brake skid mark off the track. I always check my caliper and fork pinch bolts, but I will be creating a full checklist and following it before every trackday.
To the long time TD pros - do you have such a list? If so, what's on it?
All required safety wire
Bar ends (not critical but I've seen many fall off at TD)
