Thanks...the OEM bags are a great addition, w/ a relatively straight forward install.
As far as the track, she was a good girl, if not a bit portly out there. Handled solidly, very stable and predictable...had to jack the pre-loads all the way up, but it seemed to work out well (I was also a solid 30 seconds off of the course record, but who's counting???
). Great fun.
I was amused by all of the smaller bikes shifting through their gears. The big Bandit could be ridden in 3rd almost the whole track; ride the torque wave w/ a bit of over rev for when you stretch it out between corners
Never missed a beat, and I learned a lot about her.
