Yeah that's him. I picked up his 619 ZX10R. I can only say he was very solid individual. Certainly knows his stuff.

I think it happened when I was braking hard and my foot slipped off the peg and it felt good I don’t recommend it for every corner though, just the slow ones (or the ones I should go slow)

Also got sudden onset yoga plough pose

In my 8 track days ive had two low sides...T-hill turn 5a and turn 11...

Its hard for me to slow down. First one was on Q3's with no warmers. 1st lap, 1st session! Was a good learning lesson. Now I at least wait till noon session to start riding faster. Plus I bring two bikes, two helmets, two sets of leathers, two sets of warmers and race tires. Going home early is a Pita! SO is wrecking!

2nd wreck was right in front of gotbluemilk so he lit me up....even the part where my dumb ass tried to stand up while still going way to fast and did a flip....Another lesson learned!

Lauritzens race with a local club called the AFM.

JD races with MA, or Moto America.

MotoGP is the very highest level of international racing. The AFM actually did have one racer who made it that far, Kenny Roberts ( well, he did some AFM races, I'm not sure I'd call it his start.) He was a multiple world champion. The AFM had a couple others who made it to international levels.

As a rule, if you want to get to MotoGP, you start, in Europe, at age five or so, and dedicate your life to racing in the racing series for younger racers.

I dont remember my age, somewhere between 7 and 12 I would guess. So between 1980 and 85. I remember vaguely my mom talking about this guy Kenny Roberts. And I remember one time going to what I believed was his house. Party going on, it was dusk outside and they ushered me through the house and into the back yard. Pretty sure there was a tennis court and im positive there was a underground racketball court cause thats where i went and played for hours. The house, or any of the other stuff didnt really stick with me as being incredibly special though it probably was especially for that time period. But I do remember seeing the back yard was a huge dirtbike track with some big ass jumps!

Dont think i ever seen him again after that time...

I'd advise to focus on staying in control of your inputs, conserving energy, and staying sensitive to the feedback from your bike and your body. If you can do that and build speed, it doesn't matter what it looks like. We're not getting points for style.

I have seen different techniques work for different people and even for the same person at different times or on different bikes. Toward the end of my club racing, I settled on carrying some weight on the ball of the inside foot, feeling the tank with the inner outside thigh, and arch of the outside foot. That was on my 600, except during transitions, when I have both feet on the balls. On my 125, which has a much more cramped cockpit, I tend to leave both feet on the balls through corners. Lately, I've been playing around with Troy Corser's idea of having your feet on their arches on the straights and just shifting your on its ball inner foot on corner entry, then setting it back on its arch after the exit again. I haven't gotten a chance to do it on the track yet, but on my big sport touring bike, it really felt right. Here are a couple videos of Corser explaining this:


youtu.be/0TQw4-EYxHA

youtu.be/HeMSfgb5tks

Another thing I picked up on was from Ken Hill's podcast. I don't remember which episode, but he advocates not just putting your inner foot on its ball, but also pointing it. This engages your core and gives you more stability. I've tried that on the street bike too and it felt fantastic.

In general, physical fitness, flexibility, and some knowledge of your anatomy can help a great deal experiment with different techniques. To me, the fun of racing was 1 part bike tech and 9 parts riding tech. Enjoy!

Oh, one last thing, sorry for the spam.

Last year, I got my first taste of flat tracking, which was also my first real intro to dirt bikes. This was at the Colin Edwards school in Texas. The coaches were awesome and on the 3rd day, I had an epiphany about weighting the outside peg. Doing it on the bike as it was sliding mid-corner or on the exit while pressing your inside foot into the ground helped to bring your hips and upper body further on top of the bike (opposite of road racing) and closer to the contact patch of the rear tire. This put more weight on the rear and gave you more drive -- simple as that. This didn't seem to translate much to pavement, was a ton of fun. It definitely requires your outside foot to be on its arch to get a positive engagement with the bike.
