First track day on the K12R, and it's a friggin MISSLE! Took the first session easy to get the feel of this heavy beast (old bike was an SV650), and of the M3s, and then I let 'er loose! Managed 255kph down the back straight (on the GPS) once. Thought my head was going to be ripped off! What a change, the ol' SV could only manage 215 before it ran out of breath.
Had a great time dicing with a few litre-bikes, though the tight stuff is kryptonite to the ol' KR. Oh yeah, there was a KTM SuperDuke who was probably having more fun than anyone else. Damn those are fast! (and light) WOO-HOO! What a day!
I love this bike!
