A couple of you asked about the track and track days. Here's a map of BIR:
Good website for track information just about anywhere: Trackpedia
Another good website for track day info: TrackDayMag
Their calendar has more info on track days in various regions. Some have lap videos. The track day websites say "sportbike," but just about any bike can run a track if it'll pass tech inspection. I've seen pictures of full-on Harley dressers, old Honda cruisers, motards, etc.
If anyone's interested, a couple of us are looking to go out again somewhere later in the year.
Soon as I see that the pro photographer has posted pictures, I'll put more glorious "ME" shots up.
