You call that lean? Here's some lean for you! (Yes, this young fellow is mid corner. Hey, don't laugh. It takes all types and I'm glad he's out there giving it . He ain't no racer wannabe poseur!)

479219481 PDET2 XL


If he can make the bike turn without leaning it then he can make it haul.

I noticed that many riders doesn't have helmet numbers.

Rider competition numbers (the number assigned to you on your license, not necessarily the number of the team you're riding on) are required on everyone's helmet. However, we only require it to be marked in one location, which means that some put it on the back or the left side. Now, with that said, I would not be surprised if a rider or two escaped the eyes of tech and pit out and made it to the track without the numbers. New year, new rule - we have a lot of acclimation taking place.

Yes, only one. If you want to put on more, that's fine, too.

No, sir. Always had the 40D. For these I used a standard 28-135 EF IS USM on about the 50 mm focal length setting. I was about 3 feet from the edge of the track.

Unconventional Style

Heh. Yeah, I started out with the normal road-race style in the third hour, but the front felt like it was going away so I started playing with the supermoto style that I learned back in December. Looks like I got my foot stuck out there a little wrong or it got caught on something and kicked back. Later in the hour I had a slightly better style, as it took me a while to remember everything from three months ago.

Generally though, in the wet, I felt like I had a lot more places to go and chances to save slides and such with that style. Later in the day I switched to the normal style in the dry and was 5 seconds a lap faster. I'm pretty sure I would have chucked it with anything like the 2 minute pace I was running in the wet. All I know for sure is that I was passing some of the 250's into corners since I could slide it around a bit and get the bike working around the corner.
