Went to the track today on 2001 BMW R1150GS

UPDATE:
GoPro Footage
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgPxjDh_Y6k


What a great day of riding. Got in 4 long sessions and did about 50 laps at my local track. It's mainly supermotard, mini moto, and karts but some big bikes go out there too. It was really busy out there but I got some GoPro footage.

A great free app that I used for lap timing is RaceChrono (for Android). The track was preloaded with different sections and beacons along with track direction. You simply start it and put it in your pocket when you do a session. When you come in it tells you all sorts of useful stuff including lap times, best lap, section splits, ideal best lap time... and more.

I had the tires that came with the bike which are Michelin Anakee 2's. They seemed to work really good... nothing special but only felt them spin a couple of times. I met some really cool folks out there and everybody was experienced and some close quarters riding that still felt safe to me.

I'll try to post some of the footage here when it uploads to Youtube.

Mopeds

Nice day to burn some rubber. What are the other Mopeds running circles around you?

Mini moto is big at the track. Guys there run 65cc two strokes or four stroke 100' 110's and 150 and some NSR 50's. They are fast enough to beat any big bike out there but not the top supermoto guys. Nice bunch of guys giving the GS respect for showin up and runnin what i brung

Nice! I use to race out at second creek near DIA and have been to Pikes Peaks a couple times. I've been to this track but haven't ridden it yet.

Cool, yes I will probably keep going out there because the GS is actually great but for me I don't push too much and try to stay smooth. I really enjoy the focus and feeling of riding with other folks out there.

I like riding there, popping off the bags, and gettin it done.
