AH- and pipe on the left. Yeah, what he said. They are very much alike. The brake pedal (how many of those have I straightened after a student crash?) even looks like it could be the same part.

This makes it really important to hit my entry and apex so I have confidence I will hit my exit even before I can see it.


I've only had one chance to ride at Loudon... even in the rain, what a fun track!



(This, coming out of the bowl.)

The tread reminds me that I was at a trackday last summer and getting some pointers from the fast guys. I was encouraged to sit on a bike supported by a few guys and get in a hang-off position. So, I did and hung myself off with abandon. The guy running the demo said that I was hanging off too far. And that I would fall off the bike if I let go of the handlebars. So, I let go of the handlebars. And didn't move from the position a bit. He was kinda amazed. And quiet for a short spell. But it was a good lesson/demo and I learned from it.

I could be wrong, but I think a lot of riders fight the bars to much.

We do that with every student in every ARC Class, really helps them a lot.
