It was pretty windy and fairly cold (about 49*) but that was actually a lot better then what was forcasted...

All in all, it was a great day, i learned more and had a blast. Here are some pics of my day...

constructive critisism is always welcome. I was really concentrating on looking through the corners and better body position. I know i need to get my head down lower to where my mirror would be... I sure as hell tried and it felt like it, these pictures show me the truth though! I cant wait until my next one to get better and better.














Hope you enjoyed my weekend of pics :popcorn::popcorn:

Body position big time!!! Get your chest down to wards the tank. Head needs to be lower. Ben the elbows more. As you make your turns your head needs to out next to where the mirror would be as said above. In pic 2 pin the outside leg to the bike while leaning your butt off in the other direction. Forget about tying to drag a knee. Just work on body position and being smooth. Once you get this down it will all fall in place. It just takes time.

Great pics, let me ask you: did you have someone you know take these shots of you, or do track days have designated photographers that just snap shots of everyone and then you find them and get your pics? Everyone keeps posting shots of their riding to get advice about riding position, I was just never sure about who was taking the shots, thanks guys

nice pics!!!! looks like fun. i have never done it. i have to get out for some track days.
There is nothing like riding on the track, i dont ride street very often because it just doesnt compare to the feeling of the track.

Most organized trackdays will have a photographer, i think i got 40 high def pics on a CD for $40... Pretty legit deal really.
