Guy on the green 250 (forgot your name) A track day would help you. Stuff like the of your feet on the pegs and using your legs to help you support your upper body when braking.Stuff I noticed Plus those stock tires IRC's I would really only use for commuting.Try looking into better tires. The Pirelli Diablo Rosso II is what I currently have and rock in the track. Here is a ninja 250 forum with everything you could possibly want to know.

http://www.ninjette.org/forums/index.php


YO!! grsa what was that place you mention by downtown to go see.
No doubt, can't wait to get to a track day. Wanted to go to the one on the 30th but going to have to wait till another time.

The of my feet on the pegs was originally on purpose, kind of a self training aid When I first got the bike and started riding on the street I kept wanting to use that rear brake at the worst possible time so I started putting my toes on the pegs. Guess I just got used to riding that way cause I hadn't thought about it in awhile.

I always grip the bike with my legs, not just when I am braking. Have that in a death grip. dunno lol

Definitely need to throw some different tires on her.

I'm sure my 1st track day I am going to be told a 100 different ways I am riding wrong lol

Name was Justin btw

That little stream of water was fun. At least it wasn't by a waterfall

Now I have to see that entire movie. Funny scene. Lesson learned, beware of translators.

Petrol Station that was with hamburgers, (watch for a DORC (dine out ride club) meetup there)

Jim nice vid,thanks for taking the time to put that together

Nice to see advice given and listened too. How we all learn.

Glen the pace was perfect for novice rides. Perfect for riders with less than 1 year experience. One place to improve is watching for traffic behind that is pacing back and forth trying to pass the group. The good practice would be to make a single file and scoot to the far right of the lane or shoulder and let the traffic pass.

Right on point with that.
Get over, let them pass and restart (chris 5.0 is right)
As mentioned at least it was a chevy and not a range rover.

I mentioned Petrol Station, the burger is called Rancor. It's just outside 610, northern heights area.
Good vid jimrad! I got lots of footage.... But a corrupted post lunch vid... Which was most of the good stuff. I'll still post up something though. Wish I had the water crossing, cause I saw most of y'all cross. I really need front & rear cameras.
I noticed the white ninja running wide while making turns... But that may have been giving other riders room & not cutting them off.
This was the first time I've made it for the lunch menu.... I like it! Still feel like riding after eating

Definitely... it's worth it.
Did you get any footage with your GoPro while following me? Mainly post-lunch when it dried out?

My PC screwed up my post-edited footage... so had to start again. I should have something up tomorrow.
