My RZ500 with instructors video critique L1 Suday

Next to last session. Thank to the instructor for comments who had a lady passenger. She said she had fun following my scooter. Great to have shock repaired and bike did well. Skipped every other session due to humidity. Beautiful sunrise on Sunday. After getting bike to shop found front tire wore considerably more than rear. Must of been from braking. Also decided to use first gear out of the hairpins, helped. I know the track is expensive, but what a nice surface.

It is only level one but catching the liter bikes at end of straight was a blast.

Out of curiosity what speed were you able to get up to on the back straight?

I have no speedo. I would guess the bike would do 130 to 140ish. Bake straight is just too long and boring. A chicane or another turn would be nice for my little bike. Great brakes though for no engine decompression.

Yeah just curious what a 500 2 smoker could do. I liked the straight only for the intense braking zone it provided.
