Default Man, I need a lot of work

I both love and hate my Nikon. It takes amazing pictures and at the same time does a fantastic job of dispassionately pointing out how badly you suck.

I specifically posted this series of pics for this reason. All 4 of these pics were taken in a little over one second.






Look at how much wider that gap got in just 1 second!! I really need to roll on sooner :-(

I took some video, mostly so that I could see in hindsight what my lines and speed was like..pitiful. They will serve as good reminders of what I need to work on next year.

Its going to get wider, you are still in the turn and he is on the "straight" part... plus he took a much more inside line and you arched out.

video FTW, it's done wonders for my golf game, although it is depressing when you see how much you suck

Mike you are too smart and you over analyze because of that and end up not having fun every time you do this. Seriously, just freakin relax, have fun, learn a little more each time you do a track day. Just ride your bike man.

Getting on the gas too much too soon out of 12 is just going to result in spinning up the rear tire and picking your pretty bike up off of the pavement.

Carry more momentum into the chicane and you don't need to try and "beat 'em on the gas".
