It would be nice if you could take some photos or even some video...

The CT must be a bike that behaves well on the track...I'm sure.

Keep us informed.  :002:

First of all I have to say that I had a great day, and that I had a lot of fun. The big advantage was that it was a small track (1.9km). So, never very high speeds. Max 190 in the straight line, but that's good when you drive a CT and not a Fireblade.
Tires are suffering on such a small track with 6 curves.  It also takes a bit more fuel ;-)
Approx 9,5l/100 km.
I have almost everything on video, which is a lot of GB on your pc. Filmed 7 of the 8 sessions of 20 minutes. So it will take some time to make a selection. (I always struggle with these video editing programs)

But.............after the last curve of the last session something went wrong. Once of a sudden I was rolling on the tarmac, the bike sliding away. I will post some pictures tomorrow from the damage. My speed at that moment was around 80km/h.

You all will understand why I am / was happy to have the Givi crashbars!
More tomorrow!

I get the impression that the damage was minimum. I hope all is fine with you, bikes are way easier to fix than people.
average on my VFR1200X
