Putnam Park Track Day 8/23/, Indiana

here are some shots from last saturday. morning fog didnt lift till like 10am, so bad that couldnt see from corner to corner, so flag staff would allow us on the track. first 2 sessions were 15min, rest were 20.
was one HOT HOT day, but we all had a blast!!!!
myself, brother in law, and best friend, wife and other friends tagged along as well. they never miss track days.

so here goes, took a couple sessions to get body position where i need it. I am fully aware that right hand turns im lacking posture for sure, but by last session i was comfortable with throttle side had position, which is like 80% of my MENTAL problem with getting off the right side of the bike.
left turns, im straight!!!! im about 90% confident in my ability

the really blurry pic is me passing my brother in turn 4, LOL thats started a riot in the intermediate class lol. (pic is a screen shot from his gopro) sorry for lack of clarity

i also got him in turn 7 which is called the bus stop at our local track. he did end up passing me and stuffing me behind a slower rider, which took me 3/4 of a lap to pass cause HE WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE lol
after playing catch up for a lap, i came into turn 1 really hot and TOASTED my rotors, the vibration was so violant i almost went straight instead of right..so i skipped session 3 after lunch to come back last session of the day and do "ok"

all in all, was a great day, maybe some tips and pointers from you guys if you have the same trouble getting totally comfortable on you right handed turns

thanks and enjoy!!!!

i don't have the riding gear to be on the track yet. Maybe next summer. I'll definitely try to make it out for some spectating though.

Yes unfortunately, but I've been in contact with [email protected] and will probably end up with a set of Brembos T Drive rotors

Eeeek they are salty though LOL
