Snagged a couple of track days to just go ride at, Ken Hill was giving me some drills to work on, and I was testing out my resprung rear shock - those two things helped me shave nearly 2 1/2 seconds off my previous PB that I just set a couple weeks ago! Getting legitimately quick with this improvement - got a 1:57.66 at Thunderhill - at a track day none the less! Had a couple 1:58s in there to back that up! Full write in my blog (linky in sig)....





On my way to that 1:57....

This is probably my best track pic so far:


It feels like I can't tilt my head far enough back when I tuck over forward so I end up twisting my neck (and body) to compensate when I try get my body lower...
Not sure if that makes any sense? Check this pic for head tilt:

Any advice/ comments?

Cool. I was wondering if it would help. I've been planning on getting a new one as this one is pretty old already.

Getting comfortable on the D675

Been running at NYST in upstate NY, and I'm starting to get comfortable with the D675 coming from a CBR600RR.
I'm still running on stock suspension/linkage but feels pretty planted when I'm picking up the pace. I can't wait to get those bits in and really start to push.

Which Suomy helmet is that? I wear the SR-Sport and I don't feel the limited motion of my head. It may be due to the contour of the helmet in the rear of your model hitting your suit hump?
