Nevermind that reply. For some reason that pic wasn't showing so I had no idea what your comment was regarding. Then i went back 10 mins later and all of a sudden the pic loads. Fucking innernets.

PS, yes thanks, super awesome pic!
And no, there is no poop involved with my right foot!!!!!!!

Awesome day left the track with my bucket of knowledge and skill just a little fuller yesterday
fighting the winds all day was a little challenging , this was the first time on a set of real track tires pirelli superbike pro's even though they say you shouldn't need tire warmers I still gave them about two laps to warm up good , but I was getting so much more lean angle out of them than the Q2's by the second session I found myself dragging knee in 2, 4, 5, 6, 11, 13, 15,and by the end of the day 12 and 14 my goal isn't to always drag knee through the turns , its just that I felt I had so much grip that I could take the corners a little faster and push it just a little more , only lost traction once yesterday going through turn 12 , took just a little different line through turn 12 and as I was throttling out the back spun up a bit and slid it through , I didn't panic , just maintained my body position and stopped giving it more throttle and waited for the tires hooked right back up this was a first for me and I think I did a good job handling it after that session I needed to adjust the rear tire pressure just a little no more slip n slide
I wish I had more footage of yesterday but both my Contour's were acting funny and I was only able to record 3 min of a session the whole day


oh and I burnt through my left toe slider lol good thing I brought another set

Nice video Matt, to have the rear slide is part of going fast, its just sliding the used rubber off to get to the good stuff, you wont even notice it after a couple more track days

Wow that was fun!!! I don't know what kind of arrangement Mark DeGross has with God, but he sure gets special treatment when it comes to weather at The Ridge. Don't you just love it when you're pushing your bike/tires right to that edge........................You know where if I push just a bit more I'm going down??? Then Mark and Rob go by waving and laughing in their helmets.

Sorry about that. That must be me. I just think that the Ridge is a fun track and it would be foolish not to take full advantage of the wide track and awesome corners.

I asked a guy from the Ridge about this. He said that it's alright to bring a tent (or maybe an RV) and sleep there. He even said that some guys slept there last Friday night just to get a good spot (Is there somebody here who slept there Friday night?)

I had a little get off too and my bike decided to go park itself on the other side of the track.

Not much damage done thought. Sore neck/shoulder muscles because I think I landed on my head (need a new helmet). And my right side Vortex rear set mounting bracket needs to be replaced. Overall, pretty easy get off.

Yeah, that was fun. I had fun chasing you down a couple sessions earlier too. Get a real bike and I'd bet we all would have some real fun.

I stay at all the tracks the night before...

You fell at the top of the Ridge(13) near the end of the day right?

Yup. Parted out the honda already and picked this guy up. I bought this for a hell of a lot less than what I was going to invest into a supersport engine for the cbr! (After money from parting the honda out of course).

SDS Quoted me $3700 for a supersport build because of the price of Honda parts. :(

I was the slow guy in Expert trying to figure out the -1/-5 gearing on this 750.

Once you do, you'll like it. One helluva lot less shifting on a busy track. I can't believe I waited so many years to switch. Oh well, a day late and a dollar short as usual.
