Great looking bike too!

If you are not smoking your pucks and scuffing your sidewalls, you are just not livin'!!!

Great pics. Just wondering... why no knee on the ground? You did say that your ZX10R railed on smooth pavement. Why won't it lean over any farther than that? Is that one of the fastest corners, or a slower one?

The photos are from both higher speed and lower speed corners. I just don't move as much as I should on the bike. I continually strive to be more athletic on the bike. I am dragging my toes but not my knees. Having said that, I do out corner several of the bikes in my run group and all of those guys are dragging their knees. It just isn't my style.... Yet. Shoot, before I got the ZX10, I wouldn't even buy photos from the track days. The photographers only took pictures of me that looked like I was out riding around looking for a parking space at the Wal-Mart. I keep trying to learn from those guys with the white number plates. Maybe some day it will sink in.

keep at it. remember, some of us (me) are just starting and hope to get to your level (I only have one track day to mention). It's all about perspective and loving the growth.

about dragging your knee in pics... it does seem like the pictures the photographers always take are when you're just entering or exiting the turn. Yesterday I looked at about 200 thumbnails from previous trackdays at TWS and I don't think I saw one knee touching the ground. I'm just hoping that the photographer from this past weekend at TMS got one of me with my knee down... he's not the usual guy, and we're still waiting for the pics
