[Pics & Crappy Vid] Track Day: Part Deux

I got to go to Hallett again over Labor Day weekend for my second track day. This time they were running clockwise, so it was like a completely different track. On the downside, it was their big Motorcycle Appreciation Weekend (read: crowded), so I only got to run 4 good sessions. It started raining hard in the 5th one, so that kind of sucked. But, hey, any day at the track sure as Hell beats a day at work!

I didn't know at the time, but a friend of a friend was running an onboard camera in my class and I got a copy of the DVD afterwards. I had some trouble capturing a clip from it so the video quality is not pretty, but for what it's worth here is me laying the smack down in The Carousel. I am piloting the black Firebolt that passes the camera bike on the outside just as the clip starts:


And now some pics...

The novice grid. Like lambs before the slaughter...


Eh, you lookin' at me?!?


Helmet strap: check. Warning lights: negative. Damn, what am I forgetting...


I like this shot:


Never know what you'll see out here...


Another nice pic from Clyde at Bird's Eye Photography:


I am officially a track whore now. Next track day is on the 25th, so more to come!

It was an R6. Much better tool than the R1 for this technical course.
