First time at a track day, thought the grass was a safe bet to stop. WRONG!!!



Bike: '09 Daytona 675

Track: Mosport (Canada, Ontario)

Meh. Sloppy dismount. 4.5



That's a difficult, ballsy corner. Ya gotta know where you're going! This dude could have used a turn-in point, and a reference of some sort to help him find the apex. Looks like he suffered a bit of target fixation too, just before going off.



Press '2' repeatedly

I just figured rather than lean it I'd go on the grass and stop in the run off then rejoin the track. Lack of experience on the grass (downhill slippery grass) and that's the result.



Here is 2 laps later on that day with the wind in my face since I didn't have the wind shield. Nothing exciting but in case you wanna see the whole track.

I haven't tried Calabogie yet, I am hoping to this year although I really don't want to spend any more money hehe. I have a lot of days booked at Mosport and Shannonville for the year.

Dude, that's a great vid. Perfect angle to see your dismount. Well done on getting back on the horse.

How's the surface at Shannonville these days? Last time I was there it was a lumpy, chunky bit o' asphalt!
