Default MSR Cresson 11/16/13

Trying to keep this sub-forum alive. Weather this weekend was perfect, had a great track day at Cresson with the exception of my GoPro messing up and only recording 8 seconds of video during the last 2 sessions. I'll post pictures later but here's some videos in the meantime. We need more DFWAC riders at the track!

The only clean, non-traffic, lap I could find from an earlier session. I'm still pretty slow but there's a fun tank slapper at the end.



Here's an "inside pass" I got black flagged for. You be the judge.

Very nice boss! I am missing a lot of these TDs. No damper yet? I am thinking abt doing the toy run at ECR. Let you know details. Last year we did that but only got 2 laps (yes laps not sessions) cause it started raining. Awesome weather for you this weekend.

Yes, you have been missing out on everything. MSR is just too much fun to pass up a track day although the left side of my rear tire isn't too happy about it. No, I still haven't bought a steering damper yet. I think I'm averaging 1 really good tank slapper per track day. I think there are several people wanting to ride TWS later this month. I still haven't been there so I'm hoping I can make it. We'll see.

It looked like you had hundreds of bikes out there. We were on the 1.3.

Would love to have seen more of the laps.

Not sure about level 3 but 1 & 2 were sold out for both days. I'm really disappointed that my gopro screwed up because I'm confident I was into the high 20s at the end of the day, especially when chasing the instructor during the last session. I can upload a full session video later. I kept taking a peek over at the 1.3 circuit as I was going through rattle snake.

Here's the full session that previous lap was pulled from. The first lap is a throwaway to put heat in the tires. You can see me get black flagged at the end for that "inside pass".

And the only other session I got on video. I was determined to pass the CBR1000 in this session but he always just walked away from me in the straights. I need an RSV4....

Nice vids! Did that tank slapper push your pistons out of the pads? I had a slapper about a month ago and I had no brakes coming off the straight through the "slide", had to make an off track excursion.

Yea it pushed them back. You might notice the front suspension compress twice before the next turn. I was pumping the brakes to make sure I wouldn't run off.
