Default Trackday!

Well did my 2nd track day ever this last weekend. 1st time really riding the 6 since I broke my hand. And it still felt all natural to me! Special Thanks to Fastrack riders for giving me credit from the last track day I missed due to my broken hand.
Kinda funny that this track day landed on basically around the same time I started riding 1 year ago.

And of course. The obligatory highlights video!


Here's some photo goodies:

Agreed. Best and most controlled way to truly begin to understand what a bike can be capable of, as well as safest way to improve skillset at an accelerated rate.

Glad you had fun

Just curious. Is it that easy to keep a bike up if you enter too hot and push out wide into the grass like that? Most times I see a bike go into the grass they go down?

Looks like fun - a friend of mine was there on Friday (19th). I'm without a suitable bike at the moment.

Don't brake (with the front), don't turn. Keep your weight back & on the balls of your feet and use a little rear brake if possible if you need to slow down. Follow that and you'll be fine.

Its a lot more scary for me when the back tire lost traction on corner exit. Upgrading to pilot pures next trackday.

It sure does. So light and comfy. Didn't realize how nice the liner was until I had to use my old scorpion for a couple of days it felt so scratchy by comparison. I'm now a suomy fanboi

Fun fact: my spell check wants me to change suomy to sodomy. Would have made for an interesting last sentence.

I'm really anxious to finally try the brand. Excel (formally the Spec 1R Extreme) in Wall Street graphics should be here by Wed to replace the X-12 I bonked my head in couple months ago.
