too slow and scared of getting my knee down

Postby dipR1 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:08 pm

Hi, my name is Ivan, and I have just rejoined OMCC.
I hope that you will all be my friend.

I have been riding a long time, and just signed up for the Outlon park trackday.
Although I am quite fast (because I am Italian) I am very scared about getting my knee down - does it hurt?
Also, some of the bikes are REALLY loud, and cause me bladder discomfort.

Have you got any tips for someone like me?

Thanks a million,

love,
Ivan

Getting your knee down is all good it hurts like hell and your kneecap lasts about two years then go to hospital and have some new kneecaps fitted

Titanium kneecaps are the most durable ones you can get...
Wheelies - they ARE big, and they ARE clever

Tips? Sure.
I suggest you take up golf. Or knitting.

My dear friend Chris http://omcc.co.uk/forum/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=592 (who used to be very fast) tells me that golf balls can be dangerous, and so are needles!
