NTSBA ECR Track Day

Jim from NTSBA organized a member day over at Eagles Canyon Raceway and many of us went out today to enjoy the track!

Weather was good although windy.  Had a real good turnout and was quite nice to have the track to ourselves.  As usual, ECR did a great job!

Here are some pictures, and Video's below (MS Media Player 9+ format)

Here's a YouTube vid of part of Session 2 also.

Video Camera's

Seems I forgot to make a post about this. Last year Ipicked up one of the GoPro cameras to play with for use on the bikes and even in the cars. It came with a very nice suction cup mount and some other options for mounting as well. However, the lack of any screen for reviewing video or even seeing what you are currently recording was a very weak link on the unit. It has a tiny little view finder, but it's like an old 110 camera view finder. Also, there is only a little LEDthat blinks in the view...

Saturday Ride

Well, weather has been great and I haven't had time to do a ride lately.  One of the guys from NTSBA posted up a moderate paced ride for Saturday, so I figured I should get out!   We ended up doing about 200 miles, and the weather was quite nice.  A little cool in the morning, but good overall.  Nice to get out and ride for a change

Needed maintenance

Well... been very busy past few months, but finally decided yesterday was a good day to do some much needed maintenance on the 600RR.

The bike has 5220 miles on it and I took it up to my office/warehouse to do the following:

  • Swapped out the plugged rear tire (pretty worn too) for a new Pilot Power
  • Did oil change and new K&N oil filter (easier to get on/off and works very well)
  • Cleaned, lubed and adjusted the chain

I really should have taken the DRZ up there too, as it needs some of the same maintenance, but I guess I'll save that for another day
