My recent track day
Lens: 77mm 1.9 LTD Camera: k-5 Photo Location: NJ Shutter Speed: 1/125s 
Posted By: Dynasty, 09-10-2012, 08:24 PM




I as at another motorcycle track/race event today. Always a ton of fun, and when I am not racing I get the chance to take some photos! I just picked up a MIJ 77mm LTD from another member, so this was my first real try out with her. I love it!

Here are the rest of the shots I thought came out ok.

Looked at your flickr, very detailed and sharp. Is this one a custom bike? No decals.

Thanks!

It was once a Triumph Daytona 675 but it is incredibly custom at one point. Thing is an animal, I believe the guy must have $20,000 into it at this point. Wheels are carbon fiber!

That is a Daytona, but an incredibly prepared one. Fully worked motor pushing 140 hp at the rear wheel. Oh, and the wheels are carbon fiber. Overall bike now weighs 320 lbs wet, apparently. A true beast.

But alas, that is not my bike! I am this guy. Still plenty quick for me.

Great bike pics! I'm a scaredy cat, in 1982 a friend of mine got the debut Suzuki Katana, I believe the fastest production bike for it's time. I had only ever ridden 125cc motocross at that time. I still get breathless thinking about riding the Katana and I never took it out of 3rd gear. Two speeds, stop and VERY fast!

Yep! He told me he gets about 1500 miles before he has to rebuild it.
