I bet coming out of the corner, the order was reversed.

J/K. That's some cool stuff, I noticed you have your head tilt the farthest and looking well ahead. And in front of the more powerful bikes, which I think is a ZX-6R and RC51 at the back. And not sure if the blue gixxer is a 600 or 1000.

Are you in the powerband or near it?

Very good shots.

The gixxer #53 is a 1k...right after that turn is the front straight..and yes, they went by me... , but...once we get into the tight stuff, I catch back up, sometimes I'm able to pass some of em..although Dan, on the green Kawi, is a good racer, and pretty fast, he also does on track vids for people, and races with WSMC..at Willow Springs..

As for being in the powerband...I should be, I'm rolling on the gas and prolly at about 9k rpm's....just a guess, as I don't look at my tach.

Oh, as far as the looking through the turn, those guys were checkin out my new custom leathers...

Oh man, I get brownie points for getting some of the stuff right.


By the intensity, I figured you'd be somewhere in 11-12K with a higher revline on the gixxer. I was like whoa, supreme throttle control. I tried going above 9K entering a turn, freaked me out being leaned over and everything happening so fast, thought of highside on a residential road wasn't appealing.

Nice pics

I've seriously got a jones going on to get back on the track. I just did my 12th day last month with The Track Club and I'm thinking about trying another club that uses Willow Springs as their home track. I don't think I can wait till Feb. for some more fun.

You look at your tach going into turns..?

Don't worry bout the rpm's...there's other things to look at..

Once again, I'm just guessing as to the rpm's I'm at..Once I'm tipped over, I'm back on the gas...roll off when entering a turn, no reason to be on the gas at that point..
