GSXR 750 vs Tight Apex
Since I haven't posted any kill stories of late, here is my story on my race bike. Just reading this post I did a while back. Trying to see if Motorcycle racing is worth the pain?
There is no better feeling as you approach a corner @ 270Kmh pull the brake leaver hard as you can, the feeling of your nutís being squashed against the tank because you didnít position your self properly in your seat before the turn, as the pain travels to your gut you wonder if you should release the brake just enough to relieve the pain, but thatís not a option.
You bring your right knee out to feel where the track surface is and how close to the ground you really are. Your knee scrapes the track, you and your machine are in the turn as your eyes zero in on the apex, the ground so close to your face that you could almost kiss it. You can feel your elbow touching the ground momentarily, the sound of plastic and aluminum scraping the ground.
Ahh the noise your body makes, as it slams the ground hard. The sight of your beloved machine leaving your hands followed by sparks that would envy any Fourth of July Celebration. The next few seconds you donít know which way is up which way is down, all you know is that you want it to stop. As your body comes to a complete stop, you look at all the pretty lights, your mind scanning for any sign of pain, scan complete everything seems fine, and you open your eyes, black dotís but you know they will go away in a few minutes.
Looking to the left then right trying to find your machine, ah there it is. You wonder if you should stand up, mind says ďYESĒ body says ďNO. As you stand up your mind scanning for pain again, none this is a good sign. Approaching your machine your eyes scanning for any sign of life, your arms reach out, they pull hard and your machine is back on its tires. Scanning for any sign of fluids; everything seems fine turn the ignition of then back to on, press start she rumbles to life. Itís a good day after all.
Hmmm I guess the "Rush" justifies the pain.
Time to take the webs out of the machine cause it's time.
