Re: Low Sided @ Laguna Seca - Track Bike Build
Hey Doc. Thanks for the feedback.
I've analyze that video over and over, and found numerous mistakes I made.
I have a method that I follow when riding new tracks, and I didn't even follow all of the dos and don'ts of my method. I've seen a guy explain this in a recent video on YT, and it seems that a lot of folks make the same mistakes I did. Going forward, I know how to adjust EVERYTHING to avoid stupid mistakes that lead to stuff like this. Practice makes us better.
Another adult/rider/getting to the racer's level lesson. I can almost guarantee that any track I ride from now on, my riding will be smoother, cleaner, and slower (go slower to get faster).
Edit: So, I checked my lap times, and although not 100% accurate to the millisecond, I was out there running about 1:46s which isn't that fast in comparison to... However, I don't think that's bad for only my third session at a new track with many mistakes. I'm sure with more seat time that day, I may have been able to get down to the low 1:40s. Matching the right gearing for the track, and I'm sure I can get into the mid to upper 1:30s. There's a lot of room to be had for improvement, and I see it.
Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!
I love my R6, but...there's no buts...
