TPM Pocono East Trackday Aug 25/26th Pictures!

Saturday Photos Some Pictures may have bad form, they were more in the morning. I started to correct it in the afternoon sat after seeing the pictures and then even more so with my feet positioning on the peg on sunday. I'll be adding more as i upload them.








getting back in the game.

Sunday Pictures




Being Evaluated were i learned that my feet position was wrong. I always rode with the balls of my feet ON the pegs instead of on the edge.


My Personal Favorite

That's more of a preference thing. I ride with my foot flat on the peg. Others prefer to pivot out on the edge of the peg. If either works better for you, then it's the right way to do it.

You need to get your upper body down a little but your definitely making some improvements.

That crash sequence must have been fun for you, it is a good thing you didn't run him over.

I agree with Dave. Maybe try loosening the inside elbow or maybe sit back in the seat more. That both helps my chest and head lower to the bike.

o and the crash scene was crazy cuz it was the first lap of the session and i didn't think we were even pushing it, i was just getting the tires warmed up again but it was just us 2 and when he crashed and the red flag came out basically everyone got off track but me cuz i was in front of him so lets just say it was a long trip around the track for me lol.

getting back in the game.

No doubt. So difficult to get a trackday around here. I just tried, and they told me before I can do a normal trackday with them I need to go to the instructed training. Fine by me, except that the only possible time to go is a week before my wedding, and i'm pretty sure the fiancee wont like that too much. Sucks.

Congrats on your trackday though.

Myself and a few Members will be there on the 8th and the 13th! The 13th is the FUSA track and we will most likely be getting A LOT of track time in. During the week there aren't nearly as many people there as on the weekend trackdays.

getting back in the game.
