I ride a very flickable old GSXR 750. I get the most fun from Flip flopping the bike thru chicanes. But at the track, the rush of flying into a high speed sweeper comes a close second.
I agree with"DAD" too. When you nail a corner just right... Its all good!

Guess I wasn't the only one who had a difficult time choosing because it's all good.

Chicanes used to freak me out, but thenI learned to line myself up with the exit corner, and she flies out (sometimes in a wheelie). Woohoo!

33 degree banked turns followed by some sweeping infield turns for me.

It was a tough call between sweepers & chicanes but by a small margin I went with chicanes because of the zero degree camber element. Add a little bit of camber though & i would have leaned towards hairpins

As long as there is a drive through window for expresso, I am fine.

How do you manage that?

Straight roads are for fat guys on Harleys. Hitting a sweeper at 100mph or a hairpin at 50, corners are bike Heaven.

Wow, I tend to roll my bike going around hairpins at 50mph.
