This was on the only "real" left-hander at PIR. I seem to feel much more comfortable on left corners for some reason. I should talk tem in to running the track the opposite direction next time
20 minute session called "Taste of Racing". They hold it during the lunch break of the local races. Spectators can sign up and ride the course: $20 for 20 min. Best bang for your buck! No need to tape lights, mirrors etc. It is "ride whatcha brung".(Devil Dog @ Oct. 07 2006,13:51) Your bike looks completely stock...the track didn't make you tape your lights and remove the mirrors...?
Great points.(Haelo @ Oct. 07 2006,21:34) I have found that most riders are more comfortable with left turns and that the fact the throttle is on your right is the reason.
When you shift to the right, you're bending your right arm more and thus making is more difficult to carefully control the throttle. Unconsiously, this makes you more careful about putting a lot of muscle in your arms because of the fear of grabbing a handful of WOT at the apex.
Once you're experienced enough to start a real hang-off, the angle of the clip-ons won't make you uncomfortable in right handers anymore.
And nice pic
