Your first track day pics, relive the embarrassment

Share if you dare.

Post n hoot n chuckle n critique your own first track day pics. Share what you've since learned.

Can also post side-by-side with your later track days to make yourself feel better.

Fun and learning all in one, what's not to love?

I wish they had a professional photographer here at the track I go to like they do in chuckwalla so I can get some pics and see if I am actually improving my crappy BP.

I will never forget my first trackday....they closed the front straight for wheelies at T-Hill. Brand new R6 and the sweetest AGV suit ever created.

My first wheelie, followed by my first wheelie celebration. Not pictured: change of underpants.

Not my first track day by a long shot, but the oldest digital photo I have from a track day. Also my first track day on my new Speed Triple, September 2004.

It took me a long time to get used to wide bars, and as you can see in the photo, I'm pretty crossed-up.





Top of the Omega, heading for turn 5 at Willow Springs.

Track day #1:

Top of the charts was Train with "Hey, Soul Sister."

And then there was me:

I found them!

They were buried in a folder at work. These are from our second track day at Big Willow, this is turn #2.

There is so much distance between my knee and the ground that I would have sworn there was a polar shift preventing me from making contact.

I have to embarrass my better half as well. Here is Dustin doing a better job than me at Big Willow, and here is at Ortega as a comparison.

Wayne Rainey >>> Aye Aye Winnr

I'm pretty sure he is in a wheelchair and doesn't ride anymore though. and he's a California native I'm just a long time transplant. I come from a place known for it's umm.... horse power but only one at a time, it's grass but only because it's blue, and even some smokey mountains but not because the grass is blue, but then again maybe.

First time at Big Willow heading into the omega... To this day that section still intimidates me since so many people crash out there.

I can totally relate! Crashing sucks at Big Willow. I havenít been back since my tumble at turn 3.
