954 Fireblade trackday photos

Hey all,

Here's some photos from my recent two day track session at Qld raceway in Australia.

Track days - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I took 4.72 seconds off my lap times over the 2 days and am very happy with that! Still not quick by any means (1:27). I've ridden the bike 4 times now, so finally felt comfortable and was able to go harder than my first couple of track days. I still have a long way to go though! Decent amateur racers easily do 10 seconds a lap quicker than me! Cheeky buggers!

I tell you...doing two track days in a row is awesome!! You do the first day and head home thinking about what to do different the next time you're out. But instead of waiting weeks, you get to go back the next day and try out your ideas while it's all still fresh in your mind!

The 954 has been a great intro to inline 4's (I'm used to v-twins). It has nice power deliver and handles great and is just so easy to ride (relatively speaking anyway). I made the right choice with the blade.

It's starting to get very hot here in Queensland, so I think I'll do a couple more track days and then park the bike for a new paint job and some body work repairs.

Cheers

Greg

Nice pics! I got some pics taken at Brands Hatch recently, but they aren't as good as yours.

hey greg
really nice photos, like especially turn5
Apart from a great intro bike the 54 is the epitome and perfection of the 900 classis, agile/ acute and down to earth power
cheers s.

Greg -

Nice photos!

That is a great bike, and it looks like you were having some fun on it. I agree that two-day track events are fantastic, although three-day ones like FBo Days at Grattan are even better!

Good on ya, mate!

Great paint scheme. Looks like it was a good day to be out flogging the bike.

Re: 954 Fireblade trackday photos

Nice pics mate. It's bloody hot in Sydney today - around 35 so I can imagine what it's like up north. Looking at a ride in full leathers tomorrow and prediction is 35 again. Good way to shed the night before's beer calories hey?

Regards,
Dave aka ICHSNOO
