We can't see were your going, tell what happen unless you tell us all in all, it worthless and a bit ghey.
Let's you evaluate and critique your own body position/style. Let's you see perfect what you would be doing right or wrong.

My suit and bike looked good. My left rearset bent about 45 degrees away from the bike, but didn't snap like my last Vortex set did (yay MotoBits). Barry/KFG was able to heat it up and hammer it straight so I could get back out there.

Wow, thanks for the video. As someone that just does track days and doesn't race, I actually learned quite a bit from it. Nice consistant lap times too, 1:48 except the last one was 1:49. Too bad there's not a view of the instrument cluster as well for speed and tach readings. What bike you riding (1000 right)?

Way to pull it out Dogo. I think I'd have trouble picking up the speed again after that heart pounder.

Thanks! I'm actually on an old and tired 04 ZX6R (636) but it's been getting the job done!

Did you get it fixed Steve, or does it still have the upper rpm issues??

Thanks for posting that Stevie!... Sooo much fun!

Congrats on graduating... Though I really wish you'd stayed in Novice for the next round.


Sorry for the thread derailment, Dawtips.

Glad you made it back out man. Those "bumpers" are not to be messed with. That ended up being a fun day... until the oil incident cut our day short. Good to meet ya Jared, and looking forward to next year!

Yes. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't go over one and nearly wreck.

Next time you are there take a good slow look at the curbs, until the track gets the final layer of pavement, they curbs are not something you want to get close to.

Yeah the tar snakes that are there to make a smoothish transition from the lower surface of the pavement(which will be brought up by the final layer of pavement at some point) to the higher surface of the concrete curbing are starting to peal up. The surface of the track itself is also starting to deteriorate. The sweeper had a mechanical issue on Saturday morning and shed metal wire all over the track which would have been realy bad for motorbike tires so before practice all the racers had to go walk the track to pick up the wire pieces and man I was supprised how bad some sections are already looking, looks like all the bad sections are in the heavy braking zones from the cars as well as the corner apexes. Hope it gets its final layer next year!

Coping is on the edge of a swimming pool or skate park, curbs are on the edge of roads or tracks.

Lol "coping" Yeah, I've found a lot of coping all over the track. Coping gets more intense as you ride over the curbs at the ridge for sure. One day I'll stop coping and start riding like you big boys................one day..............maybe
