It was excellent. The Instruction was very good, The logistics and organization was very well done.I was apprehensive about having a sportster on the track with much faster sport bikes but everyone treats the experience like school and not racing, so it was fine.

From the beginning of the day to the end of the day I felt like a completely new rider.

As for my nightster it performed perfectly and there is a whole lot more power in a nightster than you ever use on the street. I had never even tried to run that fast and it was impressive and thrilling how fast and well it ran on a track. I would do it all again in a heartbeat, and I probably will.
