    How not to do a track day
    « on: 2019-11-01 17:12:07 »
    31.10.19 Donington circuit. Very cold day, cold tyres, first session out. I'm on my old fazer, my buddy is on the gixxer 2 bikes in front, watch what happens in front of him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmAsXxa5mQs BTW there was a chap out there wearing a polite, think bike vest, on an air cooled RT, by heck he was quick...

      Just imagine how quick he'd be if he was on a LC!  :))

        It's not what you ride, but how you ride it.

        Some guys have all the gear and no idea!

              Let's not turn this into one of those "progressive" riding threads. He crashed on a track day.

                He was a rather boastful fellow in the pits before the session. This was a novices group......Look how much lean he was trying to put on compared to all of the other bikes. On the first corner. On cold tyres.
