Track Day

Took this when i first got the bike. Only had it a week and spent that week rebuilding the forks, brakes and many other things.

Taken at Hampton Downs.

Its was mid 20s c. We get a lot of nice clear days like that but being so close to the coast weather changes fast around here.

Here is another one, this time playing with one of the instructors who was on a RC51.

Taking the big girl out for her first track day on August 30 at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in So Beloit, Il. My first track day on a bike. I've raced cars there for the past 4 years so I know the track well. I've been watching the "California Superbike Series" on youtube for the past few days. Can't wait!

Looks like great fun, Rob. Looks like the camera was getting shaken around quite a bit. Was it a windy day? I like the "Blaatt" sound the bike makes at 6K rpm. Were you running open baffles on the exhaust?

Something about the bike makes the camera vibrate. Mount is solid. Not windy at all. Its a contour camera. Pipes at that stage were baffled. Only had the bike a week then.
