Leathers, better protection. MX helmet and googles because it is cooler.
Weigh the outside peg as much as you can. Ride aggressive.

Edit. See if someone can set the suspension preload for your weight. You might need some damping justment during testing. The fronts are prone to chattering in high speed corners or under hard braking from high speed.

Ok, here's more... I have been given the Kawasaki Teams worxs bike for the day (WOW!), and I have leathers that should fit! 

Racing is on the RedStar short track including the Dirt section.... so tar and dirt! 

I'll have 5 or so warm-up laps, followed by about 8 laps for qualifying... then 2 races of about 8 laps each...

I'm hoping that I may be able to get a bit of practice in on Sunday afternoon... on our dirt skid pan... and then we'll see...

Flip this is exciting! ;D

When Motard started I was offered the same deal with Linex Yamaha CPT.  :o  :o  :o  :o

Dammit it was fun, but I sucked big time at the highspeed stuff. Get leathers and road gloves.

you are either very brave, or 'slightly touched in the top storey'.... :biggrin:

Just kidding, enjoy it! I would be mad to do something like this, but you have a lot more experience so I'd say you're the brave one to do it.

Kawasaki works bike, nogal, it should be a hoot to ride it under 'normal' circumstances and you get to race it. Lucky blik..... ummmm bast....... ummmm gir....... ummmm woman!
