kent w/onsight, the pro shooter, prints out thumbnails, burns a disc & charges 69 bucks per day. whenever i do a trackday & he's shooting, i just tell him to get allot of me. i buy to help support his work & i'm trying to correct some problems w/body position, so the captures really help

he's been loosing money @ allot of days up here due to printing/ink costs for the thumbnail pages that he used to print. 135 a day & if no one buys anything he just eats that expense.

nice action shots Dodge! the 07 looks tit's! SO?! what did you think of the CZ's? big difference or mildly noticeable? did you lose the chicken stripes on the rubber, or did you take it easy ans feeler her out a little? T.K.

you should be able to top out in 6th gear; so around 160+

noticed the difference in feel rolling down my driveway right after installation. accelerates & turns in easier. i don't use all the rubber on my rear tyre unless leaning is really required. consider them 'control strips' as it leaves me w/a bit of a safety buffer by having another 1/8" or so of rubber available just in case i need more lean angle @ any given time

i don't intentionally attempt to 'drag knees'. it happens, & typically i'm almost out of lean angle available whenever it does happen. whenever my toe sliders are rubbing the tarmac my knee could be down, but feel i actually turn quicker laps, by NOT dragging. some use their knee as a guide to how far over they're leaning, i use my toes. if you're draggin' knees might as well open your elbowz up & drag them too, because you're already there & it's even more impressive than slidin' pucks across asphalt

I agree, people go faster without dragging knee. Those idiots in WSBK, MotoGP and AMA SBK need to figure this stuff out!!!!

okay cling?
next time you view another world superbike, motogp or even ama event; check out just how little time their knees are 'down & sliding' across the tarmac. it's allot less than most realize. they're using their knees as a guide to "feel" where their bikes are as far as lean angle goes & touching quite lightly most of the time; barely skimming the ground.

again, perception is unique to each individual. mine is they're touching lightly. sounds like yours (perception that is....) is the opposite believing they're constantly riding the corners w/their knees down.

hope this helps clear up any confusion

check out shaky byrne & the fellas in brit superbike race @ caldwell, note their knees are skimming, not dragging
