That's cool. I've been a corner work at Laguna Seca for MotoGP & WSB for years. Totally fun. Best seat in the house and all access to boot.

Did Seca for the last 4 years including WSB. It's the best seat in the house and the experience of a lifetime. If I didn't have serious schedule conflict, I'd do CoTA.

Goodtimes on the XR650L

Since it was a quiet night I thought I'd give you something to pass the time. I recorded this on one weekend adventure.

Barstow to Primm - at Night

You may recall me pondering whether to take the CRF450X or the XR650L. I decided to take the XR. It's like the Class C motorhome of dirtbikes.

My guess is your tire pressure is lower? and/or your rear shock is softer or front stiffer thus making the back ride lower and slowing the turn-in. Just guesses.
