So I took my 1300S to a track day again -- the fifth such event for me -- and I spent the better part of the day wrestling the bike through the turns, wandering off the race line regularly and fighting to get it back on line. Is it me or does this bike not like to get tossed around at a track? I suspect that either way there's a good percentage that I'm responsible for and I know the bike is more of a "giant slalom" machine but can't it be ridden aggressively at the track?
Despite my performance, I did have fun and it certainly howls on the straights -- I got it to 133 mph (GPS-verified) before having to stomp on the brakes before a 120 degree right-hander. Lot's of fun but I wish I was doing better and I'd like to hear from some of you K1300S track stars (especially those that have ridden other liter bikes who have something to compare to).
