Second Trackday: Pics Inside

I had my second trackday at NJMP t-bolt this weekend and figured id post a few shots


overall it was a great time but i still have a lot of work to do. I ended up getting bumped to "I" group but turned it down for now

i want to ride "B" one more day to fix my body position


critiquing is always welcome!!!





one from my first day

I wasnt getting off the bike enough (still not!), but seeing these pics really help and i think ill be better next time

its all time...
when i first started i used to over do the lean, but as you go faster you need to get the body over further to make it smoother, generally if you feel like your fighting the bike your going slow.
BTW whats "I" group?

cheers

go hard or go home

Get your upper body down more; looks like you're keeping it stiff. Also, get your fingers off the clutch.

You are scooting your butt off while the rest of your body is not following. It is all about comfort level, it will come in time. JMO Tdub

Great pics!!!
Look at your first pic and you'll notice your butt is off the seat but your body looks like it's straight on with the bike. Pretend like there's a mirror there and your trying to kiss it.
I'm sure in do time you'll get it right.
It's all about practice.

Yea these pics really helped me realize how crossed up i am. its tough to tell when you are out there but next time i will work on it some more!

As for the clutch, im from a motocross background and ALWAYS had my hand on the clutch as my own slipper and for kicking the clutch.. just a habit

The suit is from Ayden Lee Racing, they make some really nice stuff and id recommend it to anyone!!

Try to use more of a pivot movement with your hips rather than getting your ass off the seat. You only need to pivot your hips far enough one directions to move your upper body over and down. As mentioned before, aim your movement as if you were going to bump your mirror with your helmet.

Nice rearsets btw...

Might not be a bad idea to break the habit of keeping two fingers on the clutch. It looks like that's what's causing your whole upper body to be tense since you're not able to rotate your hand on the clip-on.

Typically though, where you think your body is, it's actually inches away. Better to go with thinking of biting your hand instead of kissing the mirror.

I'll have to work on the clutch thing although that will be my toughest habit to break!

You being relaxed is the key, as long as it isn't preventing your upper body from moving freely it's ok.

Typically this is an issue with OEM clip-ons, and less so with aftermarket. Just something to think about.

Right, being relaxed and not working against the front end is important. I find myself sometimes flapping my arms or tapping my fingers when I start to get tense.

yea +1 I do the same thing, I'll reposition my hands, count, walk myself through the section. Anything to help me relax.

Nice suit!

Most have said some good advice. Tuck your head down and out towards the turn a bit more as you hang off the bike.

Btw is that a Micron pipe?

Thanks I love the suit/gloves, I'd definitely recommend them


And good eye on the pipe, most people don't even notice
