How did it go? Did you use the RC?

I understand, it's understanding that makes it possible for me to tolerate a person like yourself!

It went well, thanks! I did take the RC51 and it treated me well for a noob at the track. The fork springs are too soft and it would bottom out hard under agressive braking which would cause the front tire to chatter, but by the third session I was getting a rythem down and feeling much more comfortable. By the fourth session, the 'kids' on 600's weren't passing me anymore. I'm sure I was still slow, but a huge improvement over the morning!

Here's a few pic's
