That's some lean angle. The bike looks tiny in that pic, too. The forks seem pretty well compressed as well.

Is it me, or does the rider (Boomer?) have more room to get off the bike?

Re: 1000RR in race trim

Those from last Friday Boomer? I was there but riding in B- group with some friends. Probably a good idea as it was my first time out there. Great day but all the tire screetching from Skip Barber school was distracting. Kept thinking a bike was going down.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Right. He has a finger on the clutch, but none on the brake. That's a no-no.

Why is that a NO-NO??and why would you want to cover the brake exiting a corner??

BTW--I have No idea why I "cover" the clutch prolly just lazy--and yes I could get off the bike more---for some reason I started to get lazy on the RR---Ken Hill was noticing the same thing last Friday--then he thought I was carrying too much corner speed--hehehehehe-always something to work on--no wetshrub, this pic wasnt Friday(cept the race plastic photos) it was like a month ago--Darron was quite late in getting me the pics

BTW--LTL--low 1:38s--and that was slowing waaay down for the sound booth as that Arata is louder than snot prolly low 1:37s high 1:36s if I could just blast thru T5/Sound booth

Re: 1000RR in race trim

Pictures look good!!

You are not touching your knee down, therefore you must sell your sport bike immediately as you are not worthy!!

They are painted on--the yellow stickers go over for race day--didnt have time to put em on--and Laguna requires numbers--so for the first sound booth "set-off" I was 70--then switched to 704(my real AFM #)

Nope. I've always heard you should cover both. If I mistook it for the brake lever, then why did I say that there were NO fingers on the brake?

Re: 1000RR in race trim

Ahh...misunderstood you then...thought you originally meant to say covering it was wrong, but mistook the clutch for the brake...understand now.

Why would you want to be covering the front brake in the corner on the track??? Maybe if you were right on someones tail...Took a quick look at pics of Zemke, Hayes, E Boz from Brainerd and none of them had it covered...

Took a quick look at some motogp pics and the only place I seem to find fingers on the front brake is before apex as they're trail braking to the apex at times...at and after it seems like I see no fingers on the brake.
