Yes all Memorial Day. So much more and I can zoom back out a bit. Neil was too fast!


No really he wasn't even using his brakes!

Awesome! I didn't even know you were behind me in that session. Yes, there was a huge difference in speed. Even greater, when we picked it up later in the day when we rode together.

We are both on R6's.

I agree, one of the better L2 track days I have ridden lately. Pappa let me opt out of the classroom after the 2st session, I left my GoPro at home so no footage, did not ride the last session. Had a great time.

Yah y'all went by Caleb on the front straight approximately at 11:50. He said it was the most fun session of the day. Y'all gave him a tow for at least half a lap then he didn't wanna try to keep up or he'd crash lol. Great riding by you two!

1st time riding on slicks at TWS (Texas World Speedway) so I opted out to keep a good eye on what I was doing with the tires and bike. I started loading up around 1600 or so and L2 went out again a little after that. I assumed it was the last session.

What all goodies do you have on that R6? Pulls like a liter bike!

Broken ribs along with lots of rash but he'll be ok. There was seepage towards the end of the day between turns 1 and 2 that caused him to high side and another rider went down hard trying to avoid him.

Oops sorry, i just saw this. I went off at turn 3 because my bike started to cut off, the motor sounded funny and a engine light came on. So i went off the track when it was finally safe to do so. The other guy that was off the track was some random guy, idk who he was. He said something about him running out of gas or something i think lol

Cool tunnel vision effect at 13:40. Also, I didn't know you can pit out at T3, is there a path back to the paddocks from there?
I have a stock r6, its got a bazzaz, full akra exhaust, suspension, and clip ons/rear sets

You can get to the pits but i do not recommend it. Also it wasnt a pit out i was doing, i thought i broke my engine or something

Further proof you don't need a liter bike.. Are you using the bazzaz traction control or just fuel map? I'm seriously thinking of getting one.

Im just using the fuel map with autotune (my ecu was also flashed previously by raceworx), im "trying" to start using the auto tune i have on there but im a little lazy. I just want to ride. I have the bazzaz with tc autotune and fuel. But ive never tried turning on the traction control, i havent even looked at that tab yet, or have any idea on how to use it yet.

I still do like the bazzaz tho and recommend them, but in my opinion it makes more of a difference in a race setting and i could have rode very close to the same without a bazzaz or exhaust.

Do you have a r6?
