Now for the instructor that went down earlier in the idea what happened there. He just laid it down and the next thing i know i saw the bike upside down mid air.
I agree, I think a lot of people there had never done a track day despite it saying "experienced." We were going so slow to moderate pace you didn't even need track experience to keep up, very little lean going on, just enough to feel the bike out and it felt super comfortable.

BTW, where were the pictures posted from the track day?
