It was try to zoom out and get more of the action which would show the bike and rider(but might not have enough time) or stay in it and pick either Jim or the bike to shot. I picked the bike. What I didn't do was a rapid fire of shots. By the time the brain processes all thats going on my finger was still in single shot mode.
    Dude, don't even sweat it, that first pic is fuckin MONEY!!!

    I helped get Jim's bike rolled out of the way.

    From what I saw, the tires were smooth like glass. It seemed like there was not heat into them at all. At the pace you were riding, I guess 4 year old tires are not a good idea. But, you know that now.

    I was happy to see you back out there afterward.

    Ya, when i first got the bike it was all thought on milage not age.

    Those tires will be good for street, but definately not the track. Will have a set of Powers on for the July 25'th event. So I won't have to worry about Tracy out on the bike while I'm working the corner. Both of us won't be doing the same day as it is cost prohibitive, and if that were to happen with both of us using the same bike both of us would be out not just one. She got her Track day discount by working in turn 2 for half the day and I'll work on mine for the Aug date while she rides her day.....

    so Ken, what you're saying is that Jim & Tracy's buns, although old, are smooth & rock hard?

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Just the left side of the rear.

    After I went back out later on, it gummed up nicely....

    Just finished watching some video and rough timed the laps from it at mid 30's 4-5 laps in. Didn't look or feel I was pushing hard as it was the first day on this bike.

    Maintain the throttle and don't touch the clutch, if you do anything that will allow the rear wheel to slow and suddenly gain traction your looking for a nasty highside. On my FZR 1000 I slid the rear out in the same turn and locked my throttle, the bike "caught up" to the tire and recoverd. For what it's worth, I'll take the lowside any day.
