I just got home from a day at the lake and Rick Clemson's CD was in the mailbox.....so, here's about half of them!

Interesting to compare the shooting style of the two pros (my previous post vrs this one).

On the way to the lake we drive past the raceway....I was with 14 of my beloved family and friends...waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, 2 boats, etc.....I love these days but I looked over and thought, no way I could explain the incredible thrills I had just experienced a few days prior on my Hayabusa, nothing I know gives me the rush of being on a track on a fast, well equiped motorcycle! The water was great fun, the track goes beyond that. Doyle

Hey Doyle, I will bring some cigars next year for you and Mchoon, I think it should be a annual thing for us to do once again.

It was a treat for me to watch you 60's year old fellers ride busas (you, pacemaster, CCbusa). It is amazing to know that you FOG's can absolutely ride better than the majority of the busa owners on the planet (no disrespect intended to anyone, but if you have seen the FOG's ride you would know what I am talking about).

Everyone in the paddocks were calling you "Mr Ice" because of your riding style on the track. You were super fast but calm and smooth in execution. Ralph was a blazing riot on the track also, holy smokes!! I should of got a pic of the two of you without your helmets on.

These are great photos.. looks like you had a blast! But I have a question. I have seen many videos on the position one should have when leaning into the curve with your knee down. I'm not criticizing just want to know the right body position. In the video they say your head should be over or near the mirror that is closet to the ground. In your photos your head is over the opposite mirror. Which is the correct way? or is there a correct way. Maybe the correct way is the way you feel most comfortable:dunno: any comments? Just a rookie wanting to learn proper technique.

I think those are great questions, what I do(when riding hard) is stay off the seat a lot, sometimes even on short straights if I see a left hander, I'll leave my hind end off the seat in advance. I seldom put all my torsoe weight down on the butt like on a bagger on the interstate. Usually I'm just "passing through" across the seat in a transition. I will brag about the following....I've practiced a lot in NOT upsetting the bike when I move around and that itself creates smoothness, therefore safety and consistancy.
You are right, watching two different competent riders will reveal differences between the two BUT they both get the job done well.
One criteria for me is that I must ALWAYS feel that I am riding at 90% intensity with a 10% safety cushion built in. If someone passes me, the last thing I would do is ramp it up and pursue, for me that is juvenile and flirting with a crash.
As to where my body is in the pics....two things, first, they are snapshots, not a video, so they give the illusion of me being fixed in a body position, which is not accurate. Second, regardless of where I am on the bike, I have a feeling of balance and accuracy as I ride, the lap times, bike's position on the track, and overall feeling I get while riding is quite satisfactory for me. This time next year I may come in a little higher on most corners and my entry speed may be a little faster, BUT improvements will be minor over months, no quantum leaps of skill. You don't tear up the canvas or change the whole painting, you make tiny but effective adjustments that become habituated into your "style".
As evidenced by my age, I want to continue to do this for years and believe I've found the right combination of behaviors to make that happen, all while being a dad, husband and productive member of society!

I think staying healthy on a motorcycle(and continually improving) is directly connected to our deeper values on life overall and if you want to continue to enjoy this great sport, we must get past showing off, grandstanding, demonstrating how "balsy" we are on a bike. Humility and practice will take us far.
I know this answer is far more complex than your question but I'm old so I like to ramble! Doyle

Forgot to mention, make sure you bring plenty of supplies with you in case you break down on the back of the track. Doyle
