You can see a gap through his sleeve, might just be the draft of that big ol' windscreen.

A BMW rider without the PowerRanger costume? Surely this is a sign that the world is coming to an end!

NOTE: I have a BMW in my collection as well as multiple PowerRanger costumes.

Actually, Maroon and Moron have similar connotation and in the context of the above posted... it works just fine assuming your are referencing the meaning to be about smarts rather than race.

Moran is the last name of the actress that played Joanie Cunningham.

Here ends today's english lesson.

I know. I have only done 7 track days and only recently moved out of novice into intermediate.

It FEELS like I am hanging way off, but then I see the photos and I'm not.

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
