Some pics, track day

First time I had my 1098 on track, had a very hard time getting used to the twin, and the lack of a slipper bit me in the ass a few times.

Honestly after 10 years of 4 cylinders, lots or track time and racing, I had a hard time getting this bike to work for me. But I'm not worried as I got it for a street bike. Also a few pics of trackdaz R6 and Rapps FX bike

Great pics.

The first pic looks like a pocket bike with you on it.

You think you were offensive? You haven't been hanging out in a couple of other threads then lately have you?

Don't be daft. They were great pics, thank you for sharing them, and don't ever let fuckwits spoil your day.

WHAT!! You track your bike!!! You're a wantabe show off!!


Seriously, nice pics. I just got back from Putnam, we had good weather and a great day.

Question: I see you're also still using the stock rear sets, are you also grinding the crap out of your toe sliders? I'm finding that i can't get my feet high enough with the stock pegs. I'm picking up some rear sets next week and I'm hoping they help.

Ya still stock rearsets, but didn't touch down the toes, thats from my old race bike. But, thats only my right foot which is all jacked up from injuries and sticks out to much. I can't suck it in any more as I have limited mobility with it.

How did they let the last bike on the track with mirrors and all? It looks like Willow Springs.

Most tracks will let you run in novice and intermediate with mirrors and turn signals as long as they're taped up.

It was a track daz yamaha, Yamaha sponsors the orginization and mandates that bikes must be 100% stock. Thus the mirrors, etc...
