Awesome dude!

 Wish I could get to the track that often. I have to wait like 3 months in between days (No $$). Lame.

It was a noob day, of the 30 or so riders only about 5 of us had ever been on a track. People were crashing all over the place, lol, hell I crashed my first day.  Mostly people would go into a turn to fast or at least think they are going to fast so then they just get on the brakes real hard and run straight off the track. A few crashed twice. One guy locked up his front tire while turning, it slamed him into the track, and he was out for the count, they life flighted him, but he is ok, just can't remember crashing or about 5 hours prior.

Actually it is a dark one, I bought yours before I ever tried the camera using the dark shield. It looks ok through the dark one so I will just leave it like that. Now I got an extra clear one.

Got some pics, turn 17 only, the only place spectators can take pics. These were taken by a guy that is just getting into photography so they are still free, but we do support him with donations.   Let me know what I need to improve on.

Yea! Its called 'his left hand' :P
I bet he likes it fine, he has been perfecting it for what, like 26 years or so? :P

Cherry as in mint or as in cherry red. And if cherry red, wine cherry, wild cherry, black cherry, or mint cherry? Actually do you have some mint tires in minty green, or mint & chip?  ;D

btw, you're low on fuel...

I have a HDD camcorder, the hard drive will not take the vibration from the bike, but the camera does have an SD slot so that is what I used. It is a JVC camcorder, since I was using a SD card I had to have the camera set on economy video setting which gave me about 1:15 on 1Gb SD card.

Low on fuel? Yeah, I dont need a full tank for a half hour session, as long as I have 2 bars showing when I get on the track then I have enough, even when the last bar starts to blink you still have almost a gallon. Not having a full tank is alot less weight to have to flick back and forth at a high center of gravity.


Slipper clutch, No dont have one, like grady said, just the hand.
