I still love being a knee dragger but only in track days now. And since there are no tracks here in Hawaii it is all on hold.

I did a day at Willow. Wasn't a fan. Exhilarating, but stupid. Way too fast fighting a crosswind with a knee down.

I remember hanging off the bike at 130ish and having the wind push me all the way out to the track exit lane. Luckily it was only a gust and I was able to keep it on track. But I was pulling leather out of my butt for an hour after that one. Puckered tighter than frog booty... Lol

off-topic question for you knee-dragger , what is the material they use for the knee pad and if you know what kind of wear resistance it has? by the way,

Varies, some are a hard plastics others are leather. Wear resistance also depends on the track surface. I raced at a new blacktop track in Nebraska and went through 3 sets in one weekend. Yet other tracks they lasted 6-10 weekends.

Leather is a softer feel but more expensive. Plastic is hard but cheap. Purely personal preference.

Yeah it is a hard plastic kinda like a plastic kitchen cutting board.If you want to see something funny, look at the 1st pic(the one with 5 of us in it)and look closely at my knee sliders....ok through laughing.I made those out ot 3/4 oak, i was hoping smoke would come off them,but the knees aren't down long enough to build the kinda friction that would be needed but still pretty funny,my race buddy just laughed at me.

Very cool. Lots of respect for you motorcycle guys. Can't imagine pulling off some of the stuff y'all are showing. Gonna have to draw from my very short street racing days and experience with emergency vehicles when I go to the track when I get a new Camaro. I plan on taking it easy till I learn enough to stay out of trouble.

How do you add photos to an Album so that they can appear in the Team 1LE page?

EDIT: To add photos to the social page you need to upload them first to an album under your user CP.

You can add photos into topics the same way you do here...
You need a url... either from your albums on this site or from a photo hosting site.
