You need more seat time, that is all. Times will drop as you become more comfortable with the bike.
Agree with everyone else though, you look fantastic =)
Thanks! Yes i need a lot of more seat time, everything is new and on top of that im on my way of finding entrance speed into the corners, for real this time. I had a trackday at my "home" track last weekend, mostly trying out sprocket configurations and having a bit of fun, and was a second faster then my personal best from last year. I seem to be at about 111-113% from track records at the tracks that ive visited so far, my goal is to keep under 110 by the end of this season.
Anddddd this literally just saved me money. Was going to buy one of my track day pics but now I am not even proud of myself. Lol
Thanks! I think you should buy your pictures though! Those will be great to look back at in a year or 2 when you have evolved. Looking back, i would love to have those early ones! And still, your riding is about you, nothing or noone else
Awsome ... Times will get better !!
Times were actually quite ok, at least for race 2, specially having in mind my brakes were turned into crap. I was too sloppy bedding them in, so the went glazed on me... Looking back at last years times, i should have been 8-10 seconds slower, so there is progress!
Elbow down +10 points!
I wish! I would be in the lead by now!
I know, but it is somewhat of an indication, and it's usually more one-sided. In other words, when you see someone that looks like a WSBK rider, it's very likely that person is fast, not slow. But when you see someone that looks like Mick Doohan riding a 500 2-stroke back in his day, it could be anything...cuz obviously those guys were fast as hell riding all crooked on the bikes like everyone was back in the 90s and before.
That makes me think of a guy that rides a european class called BOTT - battle of the twins, called Jan the count. He rides just as if someone shoved a steel tube a yard up his ass, but he is crazy fast and wins race after race. Watching him race and then hearing the riding coaches in the track school saying you should sit like this and like that... You just think, well why would i?
Fuck it, for what it is worth, you look awesome in the pics. There are circumstances and there are excuses. Sometimes it's hard to differentiate between the two. Next couple races will be the indicator. Speed is a very relative thing. Classes are designed to keep people competitive. It's no fun killing everyone and it's no fun being killed by everyone. Have fun and don't crash. Of course thsee are the main goals.
Ive heard from some of the guys i know that ride superbike - "Who gives a damn if you didnt get a trophy, i would give you one of mine if i could get a picture of me dragging elbows!"
