That's no fun--seeing how left turns are my favorite.

Are you left or right handed?  I'm trying to narrow it down to see if there's a pattern.  My friend is the same way, I'm partial to rights.

I'm right handed but here's the thing, I can hang off, lean harder, going right then I can left but I can turn faster going left.  Also, my form looks better left than right.  Weird, huh?

Damn what track is that?  Every track I've been to so far is all rights.  I need a track to wear out the left side of my tires.

Pocono East Course, funny how I want a track to even my tire wear on the right side. Pocono FUSA would be a good one but it's scary fast, 2.5 miles with 2 long straightaways (banked) probably around 150-170 balanced with slow rights and lefts. I would probably do that track after a couple more on the small technical East.  BTW, I'm right handed but I love both left and right corners.

I'm doing the FUSA course on Aug 13th and the East Course Sept 9th (I think)  You should come out to some NESBA events Madmanu.  We'd love to see you out there.  I should have known you were talking about the East course, cause I've been on it before.

I'll try, I'm between Reduc and TPM right now. Also with a couple friends, were planning on going to VIR North in October (also with TPM). Definitely love to hit the track with you all someday.

hey there are 3 lefts at beaverun.  I'll try and get mine up later, the photographer doesn't organize them at all so you have to sort through 6 pages of crappy thumbnails to find pictures that "might" be you.  I'll do it when I get home from work.

Get with the program!!!

You're really looking great Fret! Nice form  :thumb: You're probably ready for the advanced group 8)
Did you like your suits feel while riding ? What tires are you on there?

Thanks Bummy! I'll go Intermediate for sure next time, advanced people would squash me :P

The suit was awesome, sucks to walk around in but on the bike it feels like it's part of your own skin! :thumb:

I got the Powers and had absolutely no traction issues like my weekend last year on Dunlops. I'll never switch again ;D

I'm working on it, I'm working on it.  I spent the 2nd night in a row working on damn GSX-Rs again.  Maybe someday I'll actually get time to change my own oil and do a little work on the track bike.  But I will sort through the pics soon.  Mine aren't as good as Frets, I'm warning you.

So humble, and modest.

Just post 'em and we'll be the judge of that. :thumb:

Ok boys and girls, here are mine.  Like Fret, to save space, I just posted links instead of putting in all the pics.  I didn't start to actually figure out body position until later in the day so my body is all crossed up in most of the pics.  The first picture is of our group which are all really good freinds of mine.  Have it at....

This is my favorite pic.  They have a very strict "no wheelies" policy and that's a damn control rider/instructor.  I saw him doing it at another part of the track as well right in front of his "students".  Just one of the reasons I'm not a big fan of STT.

That's awesome, Marc.

Keep them for reference--study and learn from them.

That's the instructor!  They say no wheelies and he goes and pulls them.  That's not cool.
