Impressive!!!!! Wayy more of your derrier then I wanted to ever see however. I give you all kinds of respect for the way you are attacking the turns. I know I don’t have the mentality to do track days however. It would kick in the dare devil inside of me I long have tried to keep buried.
How close you figure your arms and legs are getting to the track?June 30, 2009 at 2:37 am #20330zeppelinfromledParticipant
Wow, that’s pretty awesome. I might do track days down the line sometime, but probably nothing serious. It would be cool to get my bike up to triple digits in a responsible manner, but I wouldn’t want to release my inner dare-devil (although as long as I keep it to the tracks, that wouldn’t be so bad).
What kind of bike are you on?
One thing that I notice that you’re probably doing on purpose is that if you take a left hand curve and you lean off the bike for the curve, you stay off center to the left even when the track straightens out. Especially if you know you have another left hand curve coming up. Is that standard for track riding?June 30, 2009 at 4:50 am #20335
Yeah. Pretty much. Less moving around and you’re already 1/2 set up for the next turn if it’s in the same direction as the previous turn.July 1, 2009 at 4:04 am #20357
Sorry missed this question. Not really worried about dragging elbow if that’s what you’re getting at. So no clue how close my arms are getting to the ground. Already dragging knee, but I’m not worried about that either.
It’s actually odd, how going to the track has mellowed out my street riding. I don’t nearly go as fast on the street like i used to. Might not be the same for you, but either way, trackdays are awesome. If you go to one, you’ll get hooked.
