Thanks for sharing more pics. :thumb:

In photo #21 & #51, you want to lower your upper body and move to the side like the guys in front of you.  I highly recommend the Keith Code school.  In level I, though they don't cover body positioning until level II, my instructor gave me some tips.  He said to first keep your butt planted and learn to lean with your upper body; and once you master that move on to sliding your butt cheek off the seat.  Well, I mastered it that day...lol.

I'll say this for ya, you definitely make an effort to look through the turn. :thumb:

Also, you looked a lot better than me on my first trackday.  I was just puttering around and crawling through the corners (Dabeachbum and CoronaRR were yawning the whole time just following me...LOL 8))

I've been to level I of CSS, back when I really didn't know what I was doing.  I was gonna do level II and III this year but all the bring your own bike slots are full and I'm not droppng the other $200 to ride theirs.  not to mention $600 is 4 track days.

No the wierd guy doesn't even have a bike or know how to ride one yet.  He's gonna "learn to ride" on the track.  That was an EX500 I believe.  I think that was from day one, and they didn't get along too bad for being a 500.

I know my body position is fucked up, I'm working on it.  Anyone else think my frame slider sticks out too far?

If you need some help on that body positioning let me know.....  8)

yeah, the frame slider is out there just a little too far.  IMO.

Great pics guys, keep up the good work!

Bow chicka wow wow..(70's porn music)

I'm gonna tear the fairings off the weeknd and see what I can do about that frame slider.  Hopefully the damn Honda dealer will have some oil in too.

Awesome form!!!  Makes me wish I still had my photo-gear, cause my only critique is of the photos and not your riding.

Thanks T! He did have some nice gear and a platform crane thingy to take overhead shots (which wern't too impressive). I knew he wasn't very organized when I went to check out my photos and he asked "what color bike was it?" Then he told me to look under "yellow" when I checked on the web site, but like Marc wrote...you have to go through 6 pages of small thumbnails to find what might be you...I'm glad I have a yellow bike because I was easier to find.

I figure action photos must be a challenge, especially when it's a big event with fast moving sportbikes all clustered together.

What did you guys think of Beach's photo?  Resolution/Quality-wise?

Personally I thought they were the best I've ever seen.

They're very nice crisp photos, he used the right focal length and F stop so the rider is the focus and not the background.
