Ya that's a hell of a lean angle for being your 2nd track day only. Don't rush into it...it's cheaper to learn at a more gradual pace.

Oh and the photographer took 87 pictures of just that crash (so several seconds)?? Holy crap!! How many photos did he have for the whole day then???

That doesn't surprise me Zoot, but you take pictures at pro racing events...this was a track day. We have some local photographers that take pictures at our local track days, but it's usually just a few hundred for the whole weekend...I think...who knows how many they actually take and then delete.

yeah that shit ads up quick. when I had my crash, it did somewhere around $6000 worth of damages (at least)...I turned it into a track bike for about $1200. No sense in replacing parts that just have a little scratch. They ad EVERYTHING in estimates though.

He did it just for show. I tried it out last weekend as well...I mostly did it for the pit lane guys to have a good laugh (i'm not that fast) :D...unfortunately nobody saw it. And no, it didn't make me faster or feel more confident.

Hook turn technique. :)

Gets just a little more weight over the front to shorten trail midcorner-thus tightening the turn-without adding any additional (and potentially upsetting) bar input.
The typical way of going through a decreasing radius turn.
