north bound. Pretty much everyone likes that way, lefts are easier for me and all the switch backs are lefts that way. It is also uphill and you can engine brake most of the corners. A lot of really bad wrecks tend to happen northbound because of the increased speed.

Yea, it wasnt a matter of i dont know proper form, but when hauling ass through the hill like that if i were to lean off any further my legs would have gotten some serious rash. i was getting my upper body and head over as much as possible while trying to tuck my leg into my fairing. next time imma have some pucks and then i'll have some real fun.

most of that was my feelers scraping, a couple times my exaust hit . trip suggested some raisers, im looking into it.

Oh and i know you cant really tell but when im goin around those lefts and my heads over the double, 90% of the time i could see through the turn, so no worries. just the camera angle makes it look a little iffy.

No, my knee pucks are scraped in pretty good now, I can barely hear them when I hit. I want to get some Wiz ones so I can sparky.

Video doesn't do that place justice. It looks a lot slower and turns a lot easier than what it actually is.
