Talked to a few trusted minds on the session I ran. My right foot hit which threw me off, then left one did. I need some personal instruction come may 16th to see where my body positioning is going wrong.

Thanks Bevo for organizing, riders for staying in their skill level, GU for having us and Tim as always.

I passed y'all up and did a u turn because I had to finish some work, besides, I only had a helmet on. I was looking at y'all in my mirrors when I turned and almost curb checked. I couldn't help it. It was a spectacle! Again, everyone looked great, just awesome to see that! I hope everything goes well on this ride. Oh yeah, good leadership on this ride too. I noticed how organized it was. Wicked!!!!
that was me that waved u in. work is overrated. should've come to the track with us

Thanks for the invite trilai but all I had was a helmet and a back pack full of books. My visor was tented bit I'm pretty sure u seen the expression on my face was saying "what the !" it was a privledge to ro ride with y'all down 59 for one exit. I wanted to roll and that's why I passed up my true destination. Trust me, that u turn set me back a little. You all looked fierce and combfortable! I'm glad nothing bad happend. Another sign of good leadership. I wish I wasn't riding at that point because I just wanted pics of those sweet bikes. Next time I'll be on the gixxer and geard up. I'll be the lable that has gsxr on my helmet gloves and jacket. True signs of a noob! Lol!!!!!!! Awesome riding out there!

In all, still had a great time! Nice meeting everyone!
If its any relief to you my cruiser with saddle bags is really fast.. LOL Go SBN

Nah, just do the class if they have one, or a novice group. They should have instructors or control riders in all groups. I do not think another parade day would help you with anything.
A: not enough time
B; not enough speed
C: not enough knowledge so you can start working on one task at a time
D: no one telling you how to do the right thing..reference point, body positioning....etc

If I were you, I would watch the video I posted on the previous page, or another video of this track several times to get a feel for the track and what lines people take, then do a track day

Thanks Zax for posting the video and boosting up my ego =)

Bevo for sharing the ride

Warren I didn't see you but I'm sure you did a good job on the track too.
It takes a lot of guts to lean a Busa

I had a lot of funzys!

if your foot is hitting the ground this means that you are not putting the ball of your foot on the pegs. your foot positioning is wrong

You used the right words. I LOL'd because Cali knows to keep the of his feet on the pegs. He's tracked a Busa and scraped the engine case on the turns
