This was an experimental video I took of another rider in the intermediate group. I used velcro to affix the bullet cam. Bad idea with all the vibrations.

No, good grip in turn 1. I'm uploading a video of me at speed in Turn 1. True 156 (speedo corrected) on the front straight, a bit of engine braking by letting off before the transition and then maintenance throttle across it. Would estimate 120 at the transition, grab two gears and then across some snakes to get close in. Knee typically dragging and never slipped a tire.

Turn 6, however, slid the front pretty good one time.

I know who that was too.

He's a big guy... I think a 600 is too small for him. (i say that because I hear peeps all the time say..I'm 6"2' 225 or Im this tall or Im that fat and I need a 1k) well... I am 6"5' 250lbs and as you can see, the only thing lacking for me was skills and ballzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!) 600 is plenty strong for anyone!

2nd track day and 1st time at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I have alot to work on by had a BLAST!

Thanks Curt! I know it toook every ounce of self control not to just blow by me!

1st 1/2 lap I was warming up the tire...after that..sorry folks, thats all I have in me. For now

AHhh, Grasshoppah,
Remember, to use your Zen mind. To go fast you must first go slow. When the time is right the blossoms fall from the cherry tree and the cherry will be fresh no more.
Your purpose is not to show the other warriors your strength, but to show the child inside how to control fear...
