Guy looks fast. I think it's legal to race in the twins class.

Pretty sure that's Zack and he's a great dude. Harley owner and R6 track bike owner. He runs the Harley in C group usually. That looks like last year at Thunderhill. I believe it was a mechanical failure that caused everything. Since then has a new bike and it's tricked out more than this one was. his website is www.hdkingsracing.com

And why "SMH" at Harley's a track days man? It's got two wheels and a rider right? Don't see why it matters. I've seen Harleys and I've even seen guys out on GL1800 Gold Wings. What's the difference?

Well then I'd be shaking my head at those guys too! lol It's just not really the type of bike you would/should bring to a track. I'm surprised you'd even ask that lol I too have seen people bring other non-sport bikes to track days (although never a Harley), and although it's fine, I could tell they weren't having as much fun as they would've on sport bikes. A friend of mine started out track days on a Diavel, then shortly after he showed up with an SV650. I suppose it's fine if you just have that one bike and you want to try out the track, but the guy in the video you can tell that's not his first track day, and he knows what he's doing. Leave the Harley home

Yeah that's what I did too. It's not working for some reason. It used to be automatic, whether you used that button or not.

I used to take my xr1200 to track days. but since I'm novice I found it hard to learn on a 600lbs bike. so I bought zx6r.
IMO one has to be a real advanced rider to manage Harley on the track
