looks like the big did pretty good too. I wanted to go out there but the gf decided going to NH to visit her family and dragging me along was more important haha. Next year for sure though...and going to TSW. You planning on going to more track days next year?
I'm addicted now, definitely going to TWS next year, been there many times watching friends ride bu never went out to ride it. From memory, it looked rough as a corn field. Have to get some real suspension work before going there. Holler at me when you go, I'll meet you there.
Is it just me, or judging by your tach/speedo/etc., you really weren't 'pushing' it much at all?
AND, I can certainly understand- AND- not to be uppity- 'cause- I've never had my bike on a REAL track like that. I know it was your first track day, and if it was mine too- you probaby would have been passing me!
Edit, and I could see from your vid there were many slower riders, that you were being real careful about on the entries to corners, etc.- I would have been every bit as 'non agressive', if not more so.
I can't 'afford' a dedicated track bike, etc.
Thanks for sharing
Yea, there were riders there that looked like almost new riders. Their track rider's meeting I think intimidated a bunch of people. I just tried to wait until plenty of room to pass, and get by quickly on the outside. That track has like 21 corners, way more than most, anyone who thinks they'll memorize each corner and all the turn ins in 2 sessions is going to be running off track. Some of those turns were more than 90 degree corners also.
I'll be way faster the next time I go there if I can keep my speed up and not be "people braking" every 2 minutes. By the way, my bike is my streetbike, Im on the fence about just making it a full time track bike
I agree, that looked particularly slow. Thats a huge issue I encountered in the level 1 group at TWS. I want to switch to level 2 for this reason but feel that because the range of skill is so vast in level 2, Ill become one of the slowest riders in that group. COTA is on the list next year, that is if I survive another track day before I make it there. I dont have the budget for another rebuild lol oops
Like I mentioned to marcadamski, give me a shout, I'll go out too.
