Tire warmers

Should I rent tire warmers for the track day? I don't expect hard braking nor out of the corner acceleration like the 600/1000 bikes.

I'll be lucky to get past 90mph in the straights. My tires have about 1300 miles on them and I want to prolong them as much as necessary.

Thanks!!

Did you do your track day already? I believe by now you should have, right?

I thought it was Sept.

I guess I was expecting a "first-track-day" post from you. Did I miss it?

You lived. Didn't die. Didn't horrifically crash. Right?
