nice, that's a weird looking track though...so narrow and not much of a run-off area.

what track is that? It seems like a nice place to do trackdays to learn.

The whole track is 30' wide if I remember correctly, some areas are deceiving and look much narrower.

Blackhawk Farms in south Beliot IL. It's a fun track, they do lots of trackdays and racing there.

Re: 5-20-11 Last session video

hey bud, try shifting more, you tend to stay in 1 gear the whole time except in the straights. study the track and find your shift points to stay in the power. if you have to mess with sproket sizes do it. good rule of thumb is if your below 9g your doing something wrong. try taping off your tack under 8 grand and it will give you a quick glance reference so your not constantly studying it. this way you can glance and know if your good or not. its a sport bike. staying at 10g around the track isnt gonna hurt anything as long as you do proper oil changes (i/e after every track/race day)

and btw im guessing thats a go pro? how bad is the weight and wind mounted on the side of your hemlet?
