Was that the warm-up lap? You weren't even dragging your elbows! :twofinger

j/k looks good. I'm jealous. I plan to be there for roughly 7 days in the car this fall. I really need to get off my arse and take the bike there. :(

Actually that was the last race of the weekend and I was TIRED!! :D I could barely get off the bike when I came in the pits lol. I am getting a lot better now about relaxing while racing-its easy to get super tense...

Hey spoon try not sticking your kneee out so far it just wears you out many of the pics you dont have to lean off at all. I learend that from following you arround with the video camera sitting strait up wile using your lines. If you are to tired to think you might hit your lines and markers but you wont be able to think well enough to get faster. I got the same advice from the CRA champ a few years ago. Yes it is not what you have done in the past and it is not as comofortable but if you want to go faster you will need to try some things new.

pshhh..what do YOU know :D

I know what you mean, and I feel like I have gotten a lot better about it. I really need to do a trackday so I can work on some different things like that. Now that I race, all I do is a practice session to scrub in the tires and make suspension adjustments, and then I just go for it in the races. Now that I am going faster though, I really worry about running out of lean angle. I hit my shifter in turn 5 at mam, and in the turn at HP that the first pic in the thread was taken in, so that is kinda freaking me out too. You should come to the trackaddix day with all of us on sept. 5th to help me with some stuff :brick

The club day can be very compeditive so trust me I know how you feel. Sometimes I wish that the fast guys dont show up so I can work on my form braking etc thre just is never enough time. I would like to go to that track day it has ben a wile sence I rode with you guys. I dont know how fast I am now I pass everyone then I get complacent. The GSXR doesnt suit my normal track riding style ether but I would be more than happy to help. It would be a real hoot to see you or rich beating Rob in a race. You are always welcome to go with us on thursdays if we go too. There are a few real fast guys there too though that is always a treat. You find yourself going crazy speed even on totaly shagged out tires.

No wonder I think I suck. In two days of riding with them I've already seen them set the standard and the bar for me.

Only can get better.

I can. I brought the cycle into work. I am working until 10 if that's not too late.

Although your comment completly confused me. Usually when I have to get up in the morning I go home and sleep. :p I guess its a 3rd shift state of mind thing.

Good news though it looks like my days off are going switch to Friday and Sat now.
