Trackdays: 5

'08 ZX10R - The Mistress

At my last trackday would have dumped it if I didn't have help. Wasn't paying close attention unloading and my foot slipped off. Some how I had one foot on the ground and one foot in the bed of my truck still holding my bike up at an angle without totally dropping it. I was using 2 ramps to walk it down.

Never have problem at my house alone b/c of slope in my driveway and less steep. I bought another ramp for the middle, this time 1500 lb. rated arched, so I can ride it up and place the other 2 on each side so I can keep my feet down. Hopefully it will be safer than walking it up and down. Always use the safety straps.

Seriously, back into a ditch, or up to a curb, or at least at the bottom of a driveway... all will greatly reduce the steepness.

I can walk mine up... I don't LIKE doing it, but never had a problem. But I sure as am not gonna try riding up... especially on most of those guy's ramps.
thats not me , i was taking the pic, no ramp needed.... after dec 2 trackday
