A trick I was taught. Try to touch your inside elbow to your inside knee. If you can do it, great. If not, just trying it will get you closer to the right position.

Any burls, , or decent chunks I could turn on the lathe... I've never worked with locust, it would be fun to try

I gasped when I saw the way he was transporting that blade.. If his tie were to fail this could result in very grim injuries.... I'm calling epic fail... This belongs in wtf thread

Hope you like sharpening. It's pretty brutal.

You must have better eyesight than I have, I didn't even notice he was wearing a tie. So you think if his tie came untied it would get caught in his wheel and cause him to wreck? I guess it is possible.

Nope, when you coil a band saw blade it is done with a twist and the blade itself is like a snake ready to strike. Typically one would use a zip tie to keep the blade from springing to life. These blade won't just jump into shape but should be controlled when un coiling. It that thing were to spring to life getting caught in his wheels would be a blessing, decapitation is a better bet ...

Ok that may be a bit over the top, but stiches yeah their a given.. It would actually be safer to carry it teeth down in that position, there would be less energy to the strike

What I learned last track day (with the help of the photos) is I need to greatly exaggerate my body positioning.

The track day before that I learned how to properly break before entering a turn. I look better here:





That being said, I was also taking it easy. The track was still wet with standing water in places.

Shes got it:



this is the guys doing the CMRA school



and here is a link to all the pics form that day should you want to keep looking

Try getting your chin above your wrist on the turns. If you're turning right get your head over your right hand on the throttle. Visa-versa on a left turn. This will help you get your body's central mass off of the bike & into the turn. Just remember, you'll get better every track day. Also remember, at a track day ride every time you can. It's important to build up your endurance.
