Sebspeed Posted April 21, 2010 Report Share Posted April 21, 2010 Hi all, I'm new here, haven't even done any lurking yet. Just saw you guys had a forum and like the idea of shooting the breeze with other cornering junkies! There aren't very many sportbike riders in my area (Upstate NY), more cruisers than anything else. The really sad part is that not only are sportbikes scarce, but people that like to ride the way I do are are even more scarce... So, I usually end up out riding by myself. I do a lot of reading, and I'm very active on a VFR forum that is filled with people who mostly enjoy riding as I do - very into cornering and technical riding. I've been riding for about 12 years, I've done 2 track days - first one at Pocono east - wasn't very impressed with the track, but had a Blast(literally, it was a Buell track day, and I was on an F4i! lol). Second was a trek up north to Calabogie MP, now that is a nice track!! I get the most pleasure out of working on my "smooth", because we all know fast is a by product of being smooth, right? Anyhow, I look forward to reading more here and working more on my riding techniques, hopefully with lots of critics! I'll leave you with a parting shot that a friend snapped while on vacation a couple years ago - I loaded up my VFR and went down south to the TN/NC area(love it there!). This pic was taken on Rt. 421 in Shady Valley. It doesn't look like I'm hanging off much, but I am off a bit and more importantly keeping my back inline with the bike. The weight I had in my saddlebags forced me to change my technique a little, but not too much. The sparks are from the peg feeler and my toe sliders on my boots(sz 13/48, hard to tuck in...)
