I can't remember, but I think it was the same day you posted the original thread.

When is Longhorn doing their weekend event? I need to go ahead and register for that one before it fills.

I ran in level 1 for a little while (that's the only place I could get in) and then moved up to level two. Got a knee down and had a blast...I ran off the track going into turn 4 though - I grabbed a downshift just as I was dumping into the turn only to find a false neutral...needless to say I wasn't expecting it. I was expecting v-twin engine braking when instead I got a nice launch straight through the corner. I had a blast! did anyone get any pictures?

Umm - I was hauling just coming out of 3 and wanted to slow down a little before the turn...I dunno , I was just having fun. Not all of us are CMRA racers that can dump into turn 1 at 160 MPH.

I got air on wheelie hill once, and got a little shake as well. The biggest I got was when I was coming out of 15 onto the front straight and I grabbed throttle and it started lifing on me.

you can try staying in third, or downshift a little earlier or just work on keeping the throttle cracked open a little and roll through it in fourth...

be careful... that sv backend will break loose on you...

I did too. I wonder if I went to an ohlins damper it would stop that. I didn't even try to wheelie after a while it wasnt' a fun headshake especially that close the side of the track.

If you dont land with your front wheel croocked, the bike wont shake.
