I am just giving you a hard time. I guess that is the theme for the day. Can't wait for TMGP to kick off as well.

This will ground the good technique in him for developing the perfect practice. It is hard to beat the $50 price tag for that. Not to mention, you now have a personal relationship with Ty Howard. Walking over to him and asking a few questions here and there will not be a big deal anymore. You know him, he knows you and so the story goes on.
Good point, BUT..... at this point Cinco has been riding several years, he may have some bad habits or bad technique that trying to change MAY cause more problems then they solve? In watching some of the races it certainly seems like everyone does it a little differently.

I'm not fast, but I'm faster than I was 6-7 track days ago. I think I've done probably 250 laps at MSRH now, and another 75-80 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I may be dumb but I should have learned a little something after all that:laughing6

Hopefully he is receptive to the faster guys input. Otherwise, it was a waste of money.

I guess I'm all messed up cuz I have two schools lined up in the next few weeks. Keith Code at Laguna, and Ed Bargy at No Problem raceway. I believe in proper training, same as I do my firearms training. I still take 1 -2 classes a year even though I'm a very proficient marksman. Practice only makes habit, Proper technique comes from proper training. My philosophy is take a lil something from everyone that you train under then use what works best for you.

I did TWS (Texas World Speedway) in Feb and did ok, but once I was shown proper body positioning at the LMS school my lean angles increased and I was more confident about increasing my corner speeds. Next up is equipment. My 01' R6 track bike feels so much better on the track than my '06 636. The penske shock and properly sprung and revalved forks made a night / day difference. The setup was done by me, I had my wife help me set front and rear sag and I adjusted rebound and preload at the house to get some baseline settings. I didn't touch compression until I got to the track and played with it until I was comfortable with everything.

Next up is measuring improvement. I need to buy a laptimer for that. I know that I'm improving but I cant quantify it at this point.

I would stay away from lap timers for a while.

I usually make some rounds out there and see who I passed and get times from them. Otherwise you can have someone randomly time you when you are out. Then there is the lap timer. Used properly they are a great tool but, if you are new to the track leave them alone. I would say leave them alone for your first season. Work on everything but your lap times and you will be plenty fast.

Lap timers are a very usefull tool for improving riding if you have the basics down.Any advanced riding school will get those basics taken care of,then its just getting all of those things applied while putting in alot laps.
