Trackday pics thread

Was looking for somewhere to post this but couldn't find a thread. So here we can post trackday pics. This one made me chuckle.

LOL no. My bike is still on the trailor after coming back from the Spanish crashfest!

I just came across these and liked how they showed the elevation changes and sheer awesomeness of the place.

EDIT: I was in Spain at Xmas but the complete opposite corner from Jerez

Yes I do that to make sure I've got my outside leg locked well.
I do need adjuster plates though because I have to stand on my toes too much (outside leg) to get locked properly.

So I brake too early, lesson learned

ktm 666 , you have some nice lines mate , all your time is lost between throttle and brake or corner exit to full throttle.

This is also where I need to make up time this year. Later on the brakes and faster to full throttle.
