    I replaced my coolant in prep for track day with distilled and water wetter. Swapped my tires checked my brake pads and scuff my tires on the way to the track (one hour away) very excited.. Removing the fairing and replacing the coolant wasn't as hard as I ecpext

    Yes.. But it was canceled due to weather. The dealership I work at is hosting at high plains. I have not been there. I have been studying it. I look forward to it. Have you been?

    I've been there once-it's a challenging course. I was the only one to ride there on bike bike and ride the track... How long did you take to swap coolant by the way?

    It was a teachable moment. I work at a shop so had access to lift tools etc plus a mechanic we did the tires and coolant plus two beers so about hour and forty five.
