I think we can make an exception or two. :crash


Just avoid going through Iowa on your way up and you'll be fine. :)

Oh, and you won't have to worry about Bogie being on the track to slow you down either. Apparently, he's scared of them.

From the looks of it I would be lapping you!! :fact :lol :lol

Doubtful Brian. But, since you weren't there, you'll never be able to prove yourself. :sing:


The video clips are from the section of the track that goes into a stop, then makes a hard left into the beginnings of the carousel. That's a 10MPH corner. Even the expert class racers have to drop down to that speed to make the corner.

Thanks. Something to work on next time. That was my first time on pavement in two years, and with a new bike I was a little leery about how much I could push it and be comfortable (my trial by fire was a quick slow short lap in the pits, and then right out on the track for session 1 as the bike was finished at 2:00am the morning of the trackday). On top of it, on our third session, I had coolant get on my rear tire which put me into an unwanted power slide. I didn't lose it, but I came close. Left a 50-75' blackie on the track from about where the camera was to around past the right hander. Was cool, but scary at the same time. :lol

All the vids taken Saturday:

My 06 CRF 450

My 06 CRF 450 Motard. Absolutely Love it even through it's a Honda. This is the night I bought it. I already had the kit and the guy I bought the bike from helped me put it on the bike.
