Track day !!!

Hey guys!!

I went to the track day at Nesba today or PIR.. And wow I had sooo much fun!!

Hella people crash...sucks..... I mean hella people crash... one after the other throughout the day.

My rear end slide out twice on me from going into a right hander lean and half way through the turn coming out the turn, my rear end slide or slide to the side a bit and dragged my right boot.. But somehow and just kept on riding.

Then on turn 2 a left hander while chasing a control rider cause he told me too, and I was on his ass... and half way through that turn my tire did the same thing.. slide out....at least no crashes.... thank god!

Sounds like you are reaching the limit of your skill or the bike's setup. If you haven't already done it, get your suspension tuned. And try getting your butt off the seat more in the corners.

If you gotta ask you can't afford it.
