    :rofl that last pic the guy is so bad he cant' even put his front wheel on the ice!!!

    Don't see too many people riding like that. :dunno it's gotta seem more natural to road racers I would think, but not sure if there would be any benefit. I'll have to remember to watch Lobster closer this weekend to see!

    Thanks buddy! I might have the boy in tow. I'm planning on staying at Shannon's house. Maybe I can talk her into coming along after riding. That would be a trip..:lol3

    I also am trying to get Dave out on the ice with us.. That would be fun too.

    Well, duh.:lol3

    I've noticed that when I get really leaned over, I seem to go less fast around the track. I also don't seem to be able to recreate that spinning traction around corners a lot of people seem to do. When I twist the throttle hard leaned over, the rear doesn't spin up. The bike picks up the front wheel and I tend to go straight. I can weight the peg, shift my weight and pitch the bike around, but it just won't turn the way lesser mortals do.

    I'm guessing I have too many traction enhancers:lol3 I think, fully geared up for ice riding I tip the scales at right around 310 pounds.

    Seriously though, I gave up trying to race people/be the fastest years ago. I just go out and turn laps. Maybe a little cat n mouse here and there but I just don't feel the need to push myself anymore.

    Hi, I'm Boomer and I too suffer from lack of breaking it loose in turns. I fear it may be my damnable sense of self preservation.
    I'm regretting not getting that front turned around now. oh well, i can suffer 2 more weeks or whatever.

    Might you be willing to share any specific information on the shots you displayed in your 2/24/13 Post #961?

    Simply STUNNING photography, looks to be very very high shutter speed (1/1000th?) yet fairly open aperature as well.

    Please share your equipment and settings.

    TIA, Mark

    Wrong thread, methinks.

    But now I really want to take a look at whatever photos he's talking about.
