clayton likes stunting his track bike and tracking his stunt bike, clayton also likes to stunt his tunt bike and track his track bike, he also likes long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners.

stunting = cheap fun that is ALOT harder to learn/do
track = expensive fun that is alittle bit more fun, but not as challenging.

ralphs answer was on point. i'm not giving up either anytime soon. I have contracts to fullfill in the stunt world. maybe next year I can get those stunt contracts changed over to track contracts. or maybe both......

Not as challenging? The challenge is getting your times in the low 40's. And if they ain't challenging enough how about the high 30's.

guess u missed my other post somewhere on mh. I wanna get the stunt bike in the high 40s and the track bike in the low 40s maybe high 30s. I don't see it being an issue. I got the stunt bike to 155 in 3 20 minute sessions. and on a side note. that was my second track day ever. and I guess u also missed this. the stunt bike has hard compound street tires, tops out at 120, (and I topped the gsxr out on both back straights at 145ish so I know I can knock off a lot of time with a higher top end) and the suspension I just set to 5 on all settings (1-10 on a f4i), it had dirt bike handle bars on it that are turned forward for stunting. and many other factors.
if u think my time on that bike is not respectable, ... I don't know what to say.

controlling a bike at high speeds is not as hard as learning slow circle wheelies, not as hard as holding a wheelie and jumping around all over the bike. that's what i'm saying. maybe different for some guys.

Not a bad time at all dude but some dudes get those times on SVs. But the next few seconds off your time come expendentially harder to achieve. Trust me. I agree slow speed circle wheelies are challenging but they don't hurt near as bad as when you mess up on the track. And if you do crash on the track you will see your times drop according to how fast and how much pain and money the crash cost ya.

looks like he had a decent line through there....going all the way to the left won't help much, just leaves room for people to stuff you.

Well, in my experience (and that's only one TD CW) I was able to carry quite a bit more speed into that turn by staying a little more to the left, not all the way to the outside

i'm not talking about pain and wrecking. i'm talking about how hard it is to learn and to actually do.

and are you SERIOUSLY comparing a beat up stunt bike to a SV?
i've ridden a couple SVs i'm not stupid. try again bill.

werd. i like going through it right where i was. dont know who the guys infront of me where, but ralph was running 1:57s that session, (last session i had no lap timer) and blew by those guys coming into the diamonds edge and if you watch between 2:30 and 2:15 (decrements) you will see me go wide on that sweeper before the diamonds edge. and if you watch around 1:55 you will see me just infront of the other 2, then they slow for old turn 1 and i just keep it pinned. i think i was running 1:52-3 that last session until i ran outa gas.

i like my lines, just need to work on my speed through turn 16/17 and get a bike with some top end.
