Trackday Training with Eric Bostrom – Autoclub Speedway

IJune-25-2016-Fastrack Riders - Level 2 - Grid - ACS_7641_Jun2516_by_BR-CaliPhoto a had the best experience at Autoclub Speedway (June 25, 2016).    I had 1-1 training with the one-and-only Eric Bostrom.  I learned a lot of stuff.  Mainly riding position and letting go of fear. I kept going faster and faster.

Interesting to note that he also made pointers regarding the way the SportClassic likes to be ridden.

He called it the “tractor” effect.  I refer to it as Mario Kart. (lol)  shoot style of naviagting through turns.

The bike was performing flawless.

 

I also was fortunate enough to have former racer John Hilton there.  His approach was different but nonetheless, valuable. I had a 2-for-1 that day!

Bostrom said that the SportClassic is a neutral bike, so enter the turn fast, lean it over, maintain speed to keep tires planted deep, and accellerate as you go through.  Seems kinda contradictory but it worked!

Best of all, I had my dad and great freinds there to support me!

2014 Run for the Roses

Went on my yearly New Years Eve “Run for the Roses” ride with the So Cal Norton Club.  Basically a ride that meets up where the Rose Parade starts on Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, CA and heads up Angeles Crest Hwy to Newcomb’s Ranch. Gorgeous day!

AAA Speedway

Wow. It’s been soooo long since I posted here. I haven’t been riding much except for trackdays and on sunny Fridays to work.

So on Jan 7th, took a Friday off to take a spin around AAA Speedway in Fontana. I definitely improved over the years. I was effortlessly motoring around that day.

I’ve been going to the gym a lot and it has helped me tremendously.  I went solo on this one and met a couple people there.

I’ll be going again on April 22 and June 8, 2011. Can’t wait!

Vintage OC Bike Meet

Took a quick ride to the Orange County Vintage bike meet and as usual, nicest bikes and people.

This month’s winner for the show was a Hodaka H100 Trials Bike.

..and a pic of my bike was snapped up.  🙂
