Starts out it just sort of happens. First tail hop. Then tail wiggle. Then tail slide...longer and farther out Then as youn get used to it it becomes a great tool to get wide (harder to pass) and get deep.

Also makes dudes around you check up in the amateur ranks so can be a weapon too lol.

Not always the fastest way though honestly. Actually often not the fastest at all.

On my 1000, I use to bang gears down fast and just let the rear slide around. I like to think I control my rear wheel a little better on the brakes now.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I do it the other way, make the front end hop. Spooks everyone around me, myself included. Then I ride off into the grass in turn 1 and lock the rear brake. I highside and break my wrist. I need to work on my strategy more for next year.

True. But eventually you get deep enough that the rear wheel is so light in certain areas it is almost inevitable. Shock setup helps a lot to stop it too though.

The only places I can't seem to stop it from happening no matter what is t5 at barber and t10 at road Atlanta... but everyone does there who is fast.

I can force it other places though by deliberately dumping gears and letting the slipper sort it out.

It's unfortunate that my last time at the track, when I won the 2 races, was also the last time I would be at the track this year. I had some eye opening moments that helped me realize where I was making mistakes in my riding, mostly in the vision department. Hopefully I don't get too mentally detached from the track over the next 6 months off season. I was ready to take it to that next level.

Jennings.... makes the off season shorter


But I feel ya. I've been there where I leave a weekend learning something on accident and can't wait to go back to apply it.

Gomotocoaching is one on one. Who else offers that? Custom tailored instruction to your needs. I'm trying to get bob to go to Jennings with me.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Disalvo will do one on one.

He charges like $1500 plus expenses or some shit though

I think Dwire will too, but he gets like $800 plus expenses.

Those dudes are there to try to get really fast dudes even really faster though.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Bob needs some MakeMoneyFaster coaching.

Tom, I was really planning on saving some money this year to go to Jennings this winter, but my "1 race weekend or trackday per month" this year turned into "2-3 trackdays a month plus race weekends", so I am out for sure.
