Yea those 2 left turns will take me a while to master, I just can't manage to ride through them smoothly and @ a decent speed. Love the slight rights before the hill, not sure though if I can go through it full throttle up to the apex (it felt like I could do it as I was riding but chicken out last minute lol).
Did you take any vids? I'm assuming you were at level 3? I'm curious to see how you took the 2 left's we were talking about. It might help me out on the next outing out there.
Their fun, it was my first time on that track, and no I'm a noob! Super slow! Although I was told that by the end of my 1st ever track day at streets of willow that I could definitely ride the middle group. When I go back, I'll be signing up for the slow group, an hopefully move up to the middle group around the middle of the day. I think i got all the track day butterflies out of my stomach, and I've had my first track crash already so the way I see it, is I can only advance from here!
Nope, no video. I really want to get a recording device but I'm broke and have to pay the county for tickets that I got in my dumber days hot rodding in my car before I knew what the track was lol.
On Sunday, the ambulance broke down so we were an hour behind so that cut us down to 7 sessions. Ten first session out I was with instructors because I wanted to learn so our laps we're extremely slow an only did like 3 or 4 so I didn't really lean the track. Then next session out, I crashed on my second lap into turn 1, so I missed the rest of that sessions. Then the owner told me to fix my bike and bring it back to tech and that he's going against their zero crash policy by letting me go back out there. So I promised him I would clear my head, miss the next session and get the bike going which I did. Then I got to go out, and I practiced the single gear drill, which helped. So now let's see. So that was the 5th session out, and at this point, I've barely learned anything because 1st session was too slow, 2nd session was missed after 2nd lap crash, 3rd session was missed because I kept my word and fixed my bike, 4th session was ridden but doing the single gear drill, and the first session of the day was missed because of a late ambulance.
Now I'm comfortable on the track but there's only 1 or 2 sessions left..... And I didn't want to crash at the end of the day, so I rode, but I took it fairly easy.
That's how my day went. Not ideal, but it was okay.
