Great pix Vern. Is that first one a bit off camber?
No, not really. That shot is coming out of the chicanes and heading down the short hill into T5. I loved that section because I knew what was coming up next. When I came through T5, which is a downhill left-hander coming into it and up the hill coming out of it. At the top of the short hill, coming out of T5, when you crest the hill you are doing 85 to 90 MPH and the FZ wheelied there almost every single time in third gear. In fact, if you apply too much throttle right there, you would loop the bike over backwards pretty easily.......and that would be a bad day for sure.
