Thumbs up First Track Day & CRASH! Video.

https://youtu.be/Q8CxExImY6k

Did my first track day last week. It was really slippery most of the day, and I ended the trip with a lowside on turn 9.

Filmed at Portland International Raceway, 1080p/60 so check your viewing settings.

Thanks for looking!

Perelli 's Angel GT street tire.
4 of 5 riders in the performance school went down that day (all street tires). The one who didn't went home early.

Body position could have been better and throttle/body pos. could have been smoother + a slick track. Learned loads. I am great. Bike is pretty good, need a rearset and it cracked my rear cowl.

Bummer about your lowside, but it was pretty ballsy heading out in the wet like that your first time on a track. I would have said No way, and tried to get the booking changed or a refund... ***** me.

I would have if it was allowed. If you see it 5 days ahead of the track day you can reschedule to the next event date. But the weather man didnt see it in time. I dont regret going at all.

You made it out unhurt and learned some valuable knowledge while in the rain. Plastics can be replaced. Knowledge is forever. Just glad it wasn't worse.

You are absolutely right. Learned a lot. Plastic damage wasn't bad and I already have paint to fix if I choose.

I just discovered recently that I was leaking brake fluid onto my rear tire. The main issue was my fluid level was too high. Once it heats up it needs somewhere to expand to. Glad it happened on the track instead of the street. Still don't regret the experience.

Yeah they usually don't check the rear in tech. That sucks man. I had a GSXR that had a clutch cover leak and it surprised me one day.
