Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

was the guy IN THIS VIDEO using rearbrakes in the turn and then let them go and so high sided? or do u pros think it is something else?
my second take is that he had taken a wrong line and so tried moving to right bcos otherwise he would have gone off track on his left. me just wondering...

He spun his back tire up causing it to lose grip... he then chopped the throttle (let it off) and the tire gripped suddenly. This cause the catapult action that caused him to go flying like that. He was on a corner exit, there is no reason he would use his rear brakes on a corner exit.

Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

Yesterday was a blast, but the downsides were the heat (SUPER HOT) and the crashes. I got a little scared when I saw Arturo's bike but as I was coming around 3 I saw him get up and give a little wave. Glad you're ok dude. I think your helmet is a good example of why gear is good! You should post up a pic of it. Sucks that Syd went down, his R6 is pretty messed up this time.

There are some fast guys here on this board. Gianni and Carlos can mooove on their litre bikes. Henry was smoking on the FZ1 and James and that 636 are FAST in the straights.

All in all, yesterday was great fun. It was cool finally meeting all you guys and can't wait to do it again.

thanks.

patrick did a greay job on tuning my bikes suspnesion that i had to get use to it since ive been riding with it stock settings on the back roads and track for the last year. ive adjusted my riding style to how my bike handles and near the end of the day after talking to gianni and syd i finally got use to it. thats why i pushed a little harder exiting and crashed.

when starting every session i wanted to make sure nobody was behind me going into turn one so i could get use to my bike dipping and rebounding before going deeper into the turns. i wanted to come into my second track day to get my body position better which i did. next track day ill do my lines and speed will come with that.

Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

Art, turn 3? Good to hear you're somewhat ok. Were you wearing your KBC lid? Ain't it a to wreck and have that helpless feeling? Steve O, sounds like you had fun as usual. Hope all our friends that are racing today and tomorrow do well and stay in one piece

Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

man, our whole pit was crashing and messing up bikes pretty badly, I'm surprised nothing happened to me. I also had my suspension worked on by Patrick and it helped a lot. I woke up today feeling sore, but it's all worth it for the good time I spent at track yesterday. I did way better than I did last track day. It was good spending time with all these dude (gianni, carlos, steve, syd, arturo, james, henry)

Too much throttle and too much lean angle... the further over you have the bike leaned over the smaller the contact patch is. Thus making it easier to spin up the rear tire.

Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

I had fun myself but that heat was too much and I wimped out after three sessions. Didnt feel like pushing it my first time out, but that definatly wasnt my last time!* WAY too much fun! Now I just need to drop a few pounds and work out some and I should do better next time. Though I think some rearsets and trackbody work may be inorder along with some better tires. I scrubbed these in good though! Good luck to all those out there racing this weekend!

Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

Yesterday was a great day besides some HEAT and some CRASHES. It was great to meet everyone and put faces with names. Arturo. . I am glad you made it out okay, most highsides come out with broken bones. I spoke with Gianni earlier today and he said that they were doing good and at the moment they were in third place. Congratulations guys right:

Re: Race weekend results 7/29-7/31

I'll be doing the same. Is Syd going to be able to run tomorrow, I've been reading his bike has some bobo's. I wish so bad I was in the race tomorrow, oh well next time for sure, it's probably better that way. Anyways, what are your plans for getting up there? I can drive if you want to meet me up here, I live in Tomball so it's kind of on the way depending on where you live.
