2nd track day
Had a blast at the track. Took me a long time to get it but I can say I didn't go down, had enough at the end of the day, and had my best run on my last run.
Lessons learned: 1. How important it is to connect the dots. As soon as I saw my marker look for the next one. No need to look at a marker once you saw it. 2. Get a good tire guage. I set my pressures to 32F, 34R. Used a cheap pressure gauge. First session went on the grass and kept sliding the rear all over the place. Buddy came over and checked my pressures with a real good gauge and found them at 42F, 44R. Almost wiped my bike out 3 times because of being cheap on a pressure gauge. 3. Suspension set up transforms a bike. Evan Yarnall saw I was having problems going wide and started turning screws. Major benifit . He was nice enough to come over and offered to fine tune it but I didn't have the expertise to tell him anything other than it was a lot better so chose to leave it alone. 4. Don't look at the train wreck. Turn 1 is really fast. 2 guys went off and instead of looking right for my next marker I looked left at the guys going off and almost ended up joining them.
