First time on track with V4R

I think this was my first session of the day when my improperly installed gas cap wasn't spraying fuel all over my visor and windscreen (thanks to Catalyst Reaction Suspension Tuning for fixing my handiwork!). Last year I ran my V4S exclusively as a track bike. Until now, I used my RSV4 1100 Factory and V4S as track bikes. Since getting the V4R last week, I retired the V4S to street duty and have been it and the Ape to the track. First time on the R so admittedly i was taking it easy in A group. But even in chill mode, the V4R is pretty stupid. Had some fun with a beautiful new S1000RR M-package around the 7' mark. For reference, the V4R is hitting an indicated 165mph (~155mph GPS actual) on the front straight without a good launch out of T15 and braking 50 yards before the start finish line into turn 1. This bike is mental, even with me just tooling around on it.
