Re: Knockhill - Open Session - 6th June

Just ride with confidence, you do your thing let others do theirs. I used to go off line down the straights to give the straight line kids and easier time to get past.

The big thing is to remember to stop. If you are thinking just one more lap then pull in on that one. Take 10 min and go back out.

Do not get angry, if someone gets a bit close or balks you in a bend then just shake it off. It will be a day of what feels like close calls but they don't half increase the speed of learning

Just do good lines and let the fast boys ride around you, that's always my philosophy when doing TDs.

Re: Knockhill - Open Session - 6th June

Wow what a day. was a bit nerves being racers there "testing" and i had only done a week past last monday and half the weekender (as the engine went :( ) so still pretty new to trackdays. The last few days while working on the engine its been pishing it down and was hoping that it wouldn't rain today.

Kev and myself got to the track early and got the bikes unloaded and set up, as the day went on the sun came out and it was blindingly hot, such a great day on track and it wasn't as bad with the racers testing on track either as they passed on the corners so quick and smooth you never knew they pasted you unlike the wannabe racer's, which one caused kev some bother but i will let him explain that one.

Still got a lot of learning to do for track riding but i think i did well today and hopefully kept some good lines. need to try and get off the bike some more as i kept scrapping my boot slider and my pegs and also use lower body more to pick myself up after a turn as i keep pulling on the bar. i'm far from fit as some of you lot will know who met me on the weekender but after pushing myself more and more on the track i now have a new found respect for racers for their fitness and skills.

any why here are a few pics (sorry for the watermark ones. will get some vids up once they are done over the next few days
