First Track Day Of The Season.. Pics/Vid

Recommended Posts

Its been a long winter of waiting, but I finally got out to the track today :naughty: I was feeling really rusty today, but that will go away with some more seat time. I didn't want to push too hard on the first ride and have a wreck.

And I have some helmet cam too... I usually clear all the jumps on this track, but the faces didn't have enough lift to clear them good so most times I didn't bother. http://media.putfile.com/Gopher-Dunes-First-Ride-March-31-2007

Thanks for the pics Fiddyguru :bonk:

nice pics and nice video but here is a little construvtive critisism. I couldn't exactly tell from the video but it sound like your coasting alot comin into the turns. Practice stayin on the gas till the last possible second then getting on the brakes and it will help your lap-times out alot :bonk:

Ya I was taking it pretty easy... like I said it was the first ride of the year and I've had 4 months down time. Just trying to get the feel of the machine again without killing myself LoL. Its amazing how rusty you get when not riding for so long. Next time I head there I will try for lap times. Plus those corners were brutal! Big honkin whoops in the middle of them, if you go too fast its brutal on the body after a few laps. My endurance isn't the greatest right yet either.. I will be working on that over the next few weeks.

What numbers do they have on their bikes? Maybe I have some pics of them. Ya the track was amazing considering the snow pretty much just melted.

Doesn't living in the north suck? We usually have the same trouble down here in PA too. The first ride of the season is the worst:thumbsdn:

When I uploaded the Helmet Cam to Putfile it expanded the video size to double. Right click at play it at 50% and its crystal clear.

Its mounted on the side of the helmet. This was the first time I tried that view and I'm pretty happy how it turned out. I like it better when you can see some of the bike, that way it gives you some idea whats going on. I had it top mounted before, but it gets kinda boring to watch with that view.
