I have heard those goldwings can lean over pretty far. Good for the twistys.

I'm biased, but I thought #29 on the F650GS was looking pretty good out there. Makes me more confident that my tall "beast" of a bike can do it too.

I'll be out there on the 23rd - pavement instead of CW!

Maybe some kind of bright sticker or taped "X" on the helmets? Everyone starts to blur together after a while...

I had to delete a whole bunch with only half a bike, or sometimes only a quarter or even just the track. I guess I'm not used to shooting while being so close to the track.

Hopefully I got most of you.. :confused1

lol

you do take some really good shots though man

I forgot to mention that you can also grab the full size image of yourself by clicking on the thumbnail and in the upper right-hand corner you will see a link 'full size: 3072x2048' click that, then you can right-click on the image and save it to your pc.

Arturo, thanks for the pictures dude. I saw you snapping pictures and was hoping some one would get a picture of me with a more deeper lean, but all the pictures i found of myself are all either coming out of corners or on the straights, but thanks a lot buddy!

Here's a picture of me - i'll always be in those leathers, so if any of you guys see me please come and introduce yourselfs!

Any one going to the one on the 23rd? I need my bike to tag along with someone as my car's too small to have a decent hitch

No problemo. It was hard to miss your kickass leathers and helmet.

I get asked this quite quite often by 1st timer trackday riders (either in person, or by email) if I can get a pic at full lean... but in all honesty, they usually are not leaning any where near as much as they thought they were. Sowwy! :icon_bigg


Quick Reference: You & Efmang at the same point in T4 (beginning of the curbing)
Pics - RideSmart - TWS (Texas World Speedway) - 2006-09-04
Pics - RideSmart - TWS (Texas World Speedway) - 2006-09-04





Efmang: Well before the yellow curbing and already near full lean. (note: nascar turn 4 in the background)
Pics - RideSmart - TWS (Texas World Speedway) - 2006-09-04

Next shot int he sequence, darn near full lean, still not to the curbing
Pics - RideSmart - TWS (Texas World Speedway) - 2006-09-04


One more from a Level 4 rider:

You'll get there man.... baby steps!

Efmang, work on getting the top of your body and head over. That elbow needs to be closer to the ground. Also looks like you are off the line for T4.
