TWS (Texas World Speedway) First Track Day (Level 1) 4-13-2013

First time ever on a track, I know I'm slow, but I'm learning.

Feel free to pick the video apart, criticize, point out areas of improvement, offer advice, whatever... I'm not easily offended so do your worst . Maybe I'll learn something along the way

First off you used great songs in your video, I approve, good job. Because of the angle of the video it's hard to see your body position. IMO, in the beginning you should work on your lines, body position and being consistent/predictable. Speed will come naturally as you progress.

Good job staying on the line for your first track day...smoothness is a major factor...(throttle control)

The more seat time the better... you'll learn the tracks.

Your BP looks ok, but your head stays in one spot..not sure if you remember the classroom material, but if you put your finger on your head, you'll notice it doesn't move to the inside of your lean angle very much...get off the bike a little more(Half of your off the seat)....get your knee out more, and you can decrease your lean angle and carry more speed...but thats more for later down the road...

Keep at it man! Good Job out there!

If you have stands at home and a friend to hold your bike, you can do some body position exercises...get your vid on a laptop in front of you on a chair of something, and practice getting off the bike. When riding the backroads, or interchanges. you can exaggerate to practice, but the speeds don't usually warrant the "track bp" so be careful if you do...

In my car...














What? Nobody else sticks their knee out while driving?

Definitely going to be practicing this every time I can! Can't wait to get back to the track, hopefully with some track fairings so I can worry less about the very expensive new OEM ones lol
