Consequently heavier bike, lighter rider, poor tire profile and higher speeds all require more lean in same corner.


Finally terms I can grasp. Makes sense now. I am 146lbs. riding a motorcycle that weights roughly 600 lbs. Physics alone would tell me I need to some how off set that weight.

Get with a member of MSRH, there are a few on the local boards. They can take you out there any day of the week. Cost is a bit higher....

1.) Basically safety workers at key corners on the track during a track day event. They are often compensated with a free track day for one day of corner working.

2.) By lay of the land, I mean it is nice to see how everything works out there before heading out for your first track day. Calm the nerves a bit.

Only suggestions. take it or leave it.
