Raakile Posted March 24, 2010 Report Share Posted March 24, 2010 I've just booked a trackday this friday. I had crash in January at the same track, different configuration though, so I won't be running through "the corner" this time. I did the CSS level two after the crash on a rental bike, but I'm still a bit nervous to go on the track. I notice that I keep on thinking quite many things like tyre pressures, suspension settings (which are now very different than the settings I had when I crashed), applying the school techniques etc etc. But the biggest thought is that "is this really a good idea?". I believe the crash is haunting me on this. Since I got my bike back and I've had one longer ride on it. What I noticed during the trip is that I'm facing the SRs that CSS is training to control. Thanks to CSS I can now identify some of them ( stiff on the bars, target fixation, on/off the gas ). I am going to the track for few reasons (well, I like to think so): - To get back on the saddle, so to say. Battle the ghost of past - safe environment to practice some of the CSS drills - get better feel of the new suspension settings Now that I've said my thoughts out loud, I cannot wait till friday Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
