Thanks for writing this up! Very informative for me, now I can see just how much clearance a Katana really has. Like, not so much.
I'm planning to take a Track Time class myself so, yes again, very informative concerning what kind of ground clearance I should be ready for, and that I should position my butt way over inside.

Also, I like the color choices you have on your bike.

I was planning on hitting up one of the classes at the end of the month, but I decided to take some leave instead.

Were you at Cpl's Course recently?
