Robert...you'd really do well to come race with us. I don't know why you don't...
Towards the end of round 2, I did get up to a better pace. I have to admit, taking 3 years off to manage things at the event(s) had me concerned about if I could turn fast laps or not.

Sonoma was a 2 second delta (41.9 / 43.9) between us. I don't say "Come race with us" to pimp, but rather to try and get you more quality track time for the dollar...

Bring those D-lops and let's go send it!

I was at Buttonwillow yesterday. it was pretty wet. I put Road 5s on my 2012 CBR1000RR. No traction control.

I had some nice controllable rear wheel slides here and there. And a bit of a lairy slide with both wheels while exiting the esses.


Genuine question: with both wheels sliding, I'm guessing 2 possibilities:

Traction control might be confused (I'm guessing unsophisticated systems) and do nothing or cut power to the rear wheel, which would ... ? Risk causing a lowside on the front? ?

Modern fancy-pants lean-angle sensitive systems would? What? I Really don't know.

Is there a specific outfit you normally ride with?

I notice all your bikes are 600's. Have you rode liter bikes and just preferred 600s or never wanted to move up?

Did you have an opportunity to use the rear brake with the throttle on corner exit? Why or why not?

Iíll be at both BW rounds assuming I didnít pop a head gasket on Sat.

41 low is already my goal for Sonoma this year

Iíve ridden friends literbikes a few times. Racing a 600 is already hard enough and not anything I feel like Iíve mastered. So I donít feel any need to make it harder with more power. Plus the 600 grids are generally larger where I race.

It's not likely that traction control would be confused in that situation. While they're not all the same, they typically monitor the speed of both wheels and if the rear wheel is spinning faster than the front, you're not on the brakes and are on the gas, it will reduce output either via fuel or ignition until the wheel speeds match.

If you're sliding both ends and are on the gas, the rear tire will be spinning faster than the front, which if anything will turn more slowly in a slide. It's important to recognize that traction control will assist with situations where the throttle is open too much for available grip, but will not be of any use if the rider enters a corner at too high a lean angle for available traction.

This was on exit, if that makes any difference at all to your thoughts.

As I learned yesterday (maybe you already know), the esses at Buttonwillow are flat and they flood when it rains. There was a film of standing water after the apex of the final curve and I hit it while on power, before I was fully upright. My question was based on my thinking that front and rear are sliding and wondering how an apparently synchronized slide would change with a reduction of power on the rear, wondering if while the rear gains traction, does this also remove load from the front and improve traction, or somehow does the front react negatively.

Since I have literally never used traction control (well my CB1000R has it, but it has never intervened) I have no grasp of how it reacts to such a slide. In fact I’ve only ever had slides like that on track and in the wet.

Aside: the Road 5s gave very predictable slides. They continue to impress me.

Not reading right ... you really did comment about power on thus corner exit. Oops

Your first reply to me was pretty condescending. I reply / respond to you, you remain silent, and tell me to grow up?

Previously I asked you to explain your reasoning and you chose not to. I tried again and got the same result. Asking you to explain your support of using the throttle and rear brake on the track is baiting?

We have one individual in this thread that uses the rear brake with the throttle on the track at the exit of the turn. I still don’t think that’s smart. Dragging the rear brake can be useful when making slow speed maneuvers but I seriously question its use here. Your post appears to support using this ‘technique’ on the track. Is that correct?
