Default 1st Track Day - Hooked!

Kinda new here as I just picked up my first sportbike back in July. Coming from Supermoto, I was afraid I'd never have as much fun, but damn was I wrong!

The 675 feels GREAT on track and I'm hooked. Here's a nice pic the photographer snapped of me at Autoclub Speedway. Bike is an '08 with an Arrow slip-on and Dunlop Q2's. I was surprised how stable the Q2's felt at that lean angle. Can't wait for the next one :D

Wow, that's some serious lean angle for it being your first track day!

Read. He came from Supermoto. They typically get more lean angle than sportbikes do, just at a lower speed.

Looking good, though I would suggest hanging off more. You're leaving little to no room for error there. Plus, I could never get that kind of lean when I had Q2's. They always wanted to slip on me.

Yeah, I was going to say, you're getting a lot of lean angle that could really be dialed out if you push your head and shoulders out to where your clip on is. If you aren't looking over your hand you're not far enough over.

Keep that rubber where it's fat!
