    My husband bought me a t-shirt that says "Yeah, You just got passed by a girl"

    I love seeing bikes being used to their potential, nice job.

    And to add insult to injury, they not only got passed by a girl, but also a touring bike and a BMW no less. That is a triple slap into reality for most sportbike riders.

    The track is at Cresson, south of Ft. Worth. It was sponsored by the BMW dealer in Plano. It was my first experience at a track and i would suggest it to anyone that wants to improve. I had a blast......

    Welcome andf great pics dbarc38. Helen just saw this and said " I want to go!"

    I had looked at this place when it opened...lot better than the oval at Texas World Speedway for sure. Need our local dealers to sponsor a day.

    First track day? Wow! Those pics and lean angle are quite impressive, especially considering the bike. (fairly hefty)

    A few more millimeters and you would be grounding the center stand and/or engine guards. BTW ... what type of tires?

    Kevin,

    I had a Pilot Power on the front, the Pilot Power was not available for the back. The back was more than likely a Pilot Road.

    I have the plastic guards on the cylinders and i did scrape them up. Of course i will not be taking the RT to the track again as i now know the RT's limits.

    We purchased a new K1200S this year, cant wait to get it on the track.

    You're Batgirl.

    I decided to take a spin down south of Houston to the MSR-Houston Raceway to check out trackday schedules this afternoon. No bikes today -- I watched the SCCA crowd practicing with their open wheel racers for awhile. It's a large complex and they let me in for free to ride around the facilities -- not the track -- to check things out.

    Here's the website for anybody thinking of taking a ride over there to check it out:

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    WOW...no idea that was there...isn't that the area the NASCAR investors wanted to build a track? I must have driven by it a lot lately and never noticed.
