I need to lighten up a little.
You look pro!
In lieu of results it's important to be color coordinated.
Yup, Agreed. Way too serious.
He'd smile more, if that was a grey import TY250 Mono!
Lighten up Francis.
That's okay, I was grimacing from having to miss that event thanks to work.
See you at Meriden! I'll work on my serious face...
You kind of look like Raga.
Makes me miss my forties
Hey that Gasser needs some Colorado national scratches on itLooks too pretty.
Haha. I had to look serious that day.... No brakes!
Serious isn't bad. There's a guy in our club that sticks his tongue out and moves it around his lips the whole time he's riding in a section. Concentration is a curious thing in the way that it makes us totally unaware of certain things we're doing. :)
On second thought.... you do almost look bored there, not like you're super concentrating.
After looking at that pic a second time, I see why you had no brakes on my 350. One finger on the clutch lever and one on the brake lever. I use all my fingers, plus my thumbs on both levers to stop that bike. (Or at least, slow it down.)
Another thing I notice is, you look more pissed off than serious.
Agreed on all counts. On the TY that pic must have been early on in the day. I gave up and switched to four fingers on the brake... it still didn't stop much
I sold my TY175, to a longtime D4 rider ex-Expert. He's riding intermediate 45 this year on it. He won the first D4 event which was really wet, with lots of up and downhills on loop and in sections. He said the secret was Yamaha Adaptive Brake Technology(YABT). The YABT drums simply don't work, so you can't lock them up and crash!
YABT. Love it!!!
Grant, you know I'm just teasing you. I've tried a few different things on those front brakes, to no avail. There's too much flex at the bracket that's on top of the forks. The stop for the outside cable is on top of the forks. Then you have about 9-10" of inner cable going to the drum. The stock stop on the forks isn't strong enough. I can actually watch it flex, as I pull in the brake lever.
My wife's paternal family does that. Its funny to see my daughter do it when she is really focused.

I used to do that racing BMX until I bit the end of my tongue off. I learned to do it differently after that! It is funny how you don't notice things like that until you see a picture of yourself doing it.
