SV's are fun.

 

Silly lean angles, and a good rider on a tighter track is hard to beat!

Here's my little sv.

 

 

I do believe you be needing a bellypan! B)

 

 

The sv didn't have one from factory so in Australia we are allowed to race without them.

Only if the bike came with a fairing do you have to run a belly pan.

 

Strange rule I know.

 

But then in US you don't need case covers on the SV but here we do.

Sorry for the delay, I've been away. First I presume you got it was just a little tease. Your SV looks very naked to me as I'm not used to seeing them without one. A belly pan, case covers, frame protection and nuts amounts of safty wire are required by most racing org's I'm aware of here. I'm a little shocked you don't have a pan requirement. Here if you don't have one, you're not racing. Which makes complete sense as one bike tossing it's oil load onto the track can pretty much screw up an entire race day schedule.

 

Interesting... :)

Yes! Little tease!

However, you're right – I agree a belly pan should be requirement. Spilling oil behind you for everyone else is not a good thing.

Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. Great track.

 

Rockin the CSS sticker on the PB! Nice! Little envy over here, it's 34°F. :(

 

Don't be. We lose as much time because of the heat as you do because of the cold. We CAN travel to different places, but it's sometimes a long trip to get to a track. It got up to 66 degrees during the day and I was sweating bullets.

66F or C? If 66C, it must have been track temp as there's never that hot air anywhere in nature.

 

Haha. 66F.

But 66F ain't even very warm? 100F is hot.

 

Depends, I think 66 is very nice but does lend to green track and cold tire conditions a bit. Overall, I'd take it! :lol:

Nice pix Jason. I especially like the tribute to Marko, nice touch sir.

And I'm with Gorecki, I'd take 66F right about now. biggrin.gif Then again we had low 80s in August at VIR this year so I'm sure it's a trade off.

It's a fast track that requires a lot of moving and strength to get around the track. I was sweating like crazy keeping pace to work on some new things.

In August, we're around 110 in the shade during the day.

Now we're talking! Personally, I wouldn't even dream of leaving my air conditioned compartment :D

Looks like they (101, at least) may have been holding you up. Looks real good.

Yeah, but I'm only as fast as the guy in front of me. I need to learn how to pass better. I'm okay on an open lap in qualifying but racing is more difficult.

VERY NICE contrasting example of cause/effect! That's the sort of stuff gives people the ability to *see* the difference! B)

Hi all. I have not yet taken CSS, but plan on attending Level 1 (& possibly Lv2) @ Infineon this coming April. Here are a few pics of my first and only trackday (due to the new bike springing a radiator leak the day before the final trackday of the season, forcing me town miss it) on my former bike ('08 GSX-R600) at BIR's Competition Course.

Hoping CSS will help with confidence issues that I have on the new bike ('08 848) going into next season. I did an ARC at a local short road course after I had the bike for a week and didn't feel comfortable at all....despite the instructors telling me I was doing well fundamentally.

Added a bunch of upgrades and was excited to see how the bike would feel on a real track with new tires/grippier seat/adjusted suspension/Stompgrips...but alas, the radiator spoiled that plan.

 

See ya in April!

Poor guy. Those your only choices in bikes? biggrin.gif

 

Usually, having to adjust so much on a new bike is because you are tense on the bars and have to get used to the different steering configuration (and how you are fighting the bike while in a corner).
