    Here's some pics from Sunday at Jennings GP. It was my first trackday and I know I have to work on a lot of things to get quicker, but I don't think I did too bad for my first one. I was running about a 1:40 lap.

    Here's a pic of the track:

    Yeah, I know. When I was riding I thought I was hanging off enough, but after looking at these pics, it doesn't look like it at all. I was dragging my foot pegs through a few turns so I'm definetly getting low enough, just gotta get my knee down there.

    How long have you been riding? I've been riding for a year and this is my first bike and I didn't have any problems out there. Of course I did ride over 15k miles in the past year :)

    :bigthumb: I won 50% off a new Shoei helmet at the track, so I'll be getting a new helmet and that HJC maybe reserved for my female riders only :naughty: Now I just have to decide which one to get....I've got it down to 5 choices.

    Looking good.

    As said before, get off the seat more. Also, try to keep your upper torso down. Pretend you have a string tied from your collar to the tank.

    Your head positioning is great and youre looking through the turns well!

    It'll come with time. It's a lot easier to do it on the track. There's so much more room so you can go a lot quicker. I find that when I try to drive hard on the street I tend to quickly run out of room in my lane.


    Thanks! Not too bad after riding a bike for only 14 months :)
