A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words
Malnourished, you starve.

First meet of the 2017 race season and I have got a few sponsors!! Much thanks to "The Paint Shop" and Finishline Auto Repair for the sponsored paint and body work (on the fairings i bought from razorzedge here on zx6r.com). Lubes sponsor CAM2!! The bike looked great and I'm (very) slowly getting better...new PB again and hoping to drop some more time next race out. Next race meet will be at the Jamwest circuit which will be a Caribbean meet that will see even a few Motoamerica competition including Bryce Prince! Hopefully i can learn from the fast guys and keep this baby looking good!






Lamborghini colours if you're curious

Looks like things are starting to come together for you, and the bike looks great. I am guessing that in Jamaica you do not have noise restrictions :-p

Keep at it...it will come. Oh, and you will have a much easier time of it if you can learn to use your outside leg to help lock you into the bike =)

I love that you noticed. It is the same picture i was showing to my teammate to prove that my complaints were valid. I need rearsets to raise my leg position so i can get up into the ridge of the tank. either that or i have to sit up on the tank some more Either way yes i need to be able to jam it against the tank so i can take any pressure off my arms. LOL @ the noise my god that thing was annoying. I was able to get a second hand akra just after this so the bike sounds much better now...So much was wrong with that exhaust but it just wasnt a priority ($$). I'm certainly not a money guy and it is the 3rd world after all. But you know how this bug is, when it bites it bites hard. Thanks for the encouragement

Hey that's how it goes, baby steps, small increments and over time you are there. Tell Kyle easy a bit and give you a tow lol...

You're living in jamaica riding motorcycles on the track and I'm in upstate NY where it's in the 40s and raining and they're canceling track days.

Where did I go wrong in my life? Christ.

I teach at an advanced racing school so trust me, I notice everything. It is like a curse. I have to actively try not to pick apart every single riding picture that I see for fear of being "that know-it-all asshole" :-p

Before you spend $ on rearsets, try adjusting your foot position on the bike. Try to 'stand on your tip toe' on your outside leg. That will use your calf muscle to drive your knee into the pocket on the tank. It may be enough but if not, there really is no substitute for quality rearsets.

Please do, I welcome it. I wish i could attend a school like YRCS but the cost is really prohibitive. Hoping to get Ken to take a vacation here and just....happen to be nearby with some bikes. I will definitely try working on the foot positioning, it's one of the things I've been wrestling with in practice leading up to the race.
