Mostly track riding in the A Group with NESBA about mid pack pace. I bought it used from California Superbike School a year ago with 17,500 miles and it now has about 21,000 miles on it. They never changed the fork oil, so it was certainly overdue. I did 14 trackdays this year at various tracks from VIR North and South, Summit Main, Road Atlanta and even did Barber a year ago a few weeks after I got the bike. VIR is my "home" track and I'm generally in the low 1:40s on the North with a few 1:39s and even a couple of 1:38's when I was chasing a rabbit. I plan on changing the oil every year since it's fairly easy and saves me quite a bit from having to take it to a shop. I'll be glad to answer any other questions too!
