In the parking lot of a local university a few weeks later.

=============

Then I cracked up the bike after a highside.
Also broke my arm, wrist, had surgery on my UCL in my thumb, and fractured my jaw.
Wearing full gear might I add

=============


Bought some mint used fairings, and gas tank from an R6 forum member. New Shoei X-11
Then mods started happening. Removed passenger pegs, solo cowl, custom exhaust hanger, R6-forum socks, removed rear hugger.



=============

Then I picked up some track fairings. Armor Bodies Superbike bodywork from another R6 forum member. Also got some shorty levers.
Custom front light, custom taillight.

Took more of the decals off the track bodywork.
They'll probably all go when I put my new vynals on.

Waiting on some seat foam, and tires to come in.
Trackday booked for Sept. 25

That's a light.




License plate isn't mounted yet, I have to figure out how to mount it to the undertail, which is already tight against the plastic tray/subframe. (and I can't get to the top with the tail on, in order to tighten/hold the nuts.) I'll probably JBweld some hardware in there.




Also from yesterday night as well (go watch it in better quality )

Thanks

Yeah, I figure i'll be lazy and not switch back to street plastics unless I plan to do some night riding or longer rides.


The white portions will be where i'll put some numbers.
The fairings when I bought them (this was the good side, the other side had some damage which I fixed up):

Re: Build thread - Panici

Then came the track prep:
-Hyperpro RSC damper.
-Bridgestone BT-003 RS
-Water Wetter
-Woodcraft spool sliders

My first Trackday. It took me the first two sessions to learn the track and get the gremlins out of my system from my last crash.

I was still basically the slowest guy there, but considering I was only 1 of 2 guys who had never tracked before, I didn't feel bad.

Unfortunately it's hard to get corner pics at this track, so the pics I have aren't that great.

I did get my suspension set-up trackside. The bike felt much better after that.
























Yeah, I know my BP is shit here, this was from the first or second session. I was really stiff on the bike until after that.


I never did get knee down, but I did drag my right toe slider twice. The first time was because I had the ball of my foot on the end of the peg, but i'm not sure what happened the second time. I was definitely low enough (I favour leaning to my right side, evident by the chicken strips afterwards. Left still has some unused rubber, but right I at least touched the edge slightly). I must have been tucking in my knee.

I was hoping for some pictures of me in the corners so I could see my BP and figure out where to improve, but no such luck this time.


Here is one of my laps of the last session. Sorry about the shake.
Camera was literally ziptied on as the session was starting, so I didn't really care at that point, just wanted to get on the track.

Hey man. It's my last/only day for this year. I already blew basically all the money I had saved up getting the bike ready/paying for this track day.

I'm at school now, trying to get a job to save a little, and hopefully get out there next spring.
