gothic

missing post from Friday

My catalogue of injuries are simply
A) rattled head
B) abrasians on my left arm from landing on rit repeatedly when flippinge
C) sore right foot - hurts to put weight on at first
D) angry muscle on lower left back just above hip

I just went back out on the Superstock bike. It hurts to transition from left side of the bike to the right but I can cope. I think I got back to a reasonable speed.

None of the problems mentioned above hurt all that much. They just remind me to be gentle on the brakes...
racing, motorcycle

sore in practice this morning

Changing rebound on the Superstock helped in morning practice, although I was sore and not up to speed. I stopped in the hot pit and dropped rear compression and got better traction out of the last corner.

The superbike felt much better than the superstock without any changing anything, post-crash even :-)

My only worry is that I can barely move my right foot in long corners. When I came in I rewrapped it on a way which should bind it up less in the boot. I hope it helps.

Racetek kindly gave me some fork oil so we've added 15ml to each fork leg and backed off preload. It should help... but nothing like going out to race with an untested config.
