Default Racing on the 250

My buddy (#64) and I (#711) decided to buy CBR 250's this year towards the end of the race season to try out in addition to the 1000's that we already race. It's been a blast! I've searched this site extensively so I thought I would in turn share a bit of some onboard footage at the track. Enjoy...(note they are both primered grey still for easier identification)

This is onboard with me at the WERA Grand National Finals last race of the year at Barber Motorsports.

Here's a practice session with me following my buddy...

And another practice session that grouped experts and novices which was a cluster #$%^... 30 passes back and forth in 1.5 laps before the red flag!

Here are some pictures from that weekend.





Here's my buddy and I playing in practice...



This is a video from another buddy's bike(he's on a vtr250) at Talladega Gran Prix. I'm right in front of him to the left. My buddy on the other cbr250 is right beside him. Best part for me was at 2:02...

Here's a video from another guys bike during practice. At ~2:55 you'll notice a puff of dirt off the right of the turn. That was me running off track, never letting off the gas and then reentering without giving up any positions...I love the lil bike!



Pictures from same weekend...






Here's a video from the same buddy on the vtr250...but I crash on the first lap so... I'm directly to his left at the start.




And a lil of the big bike action...

very cool, great pictures, thanks!
I had to laugh at that wipe out because that was a pretty yahoo move on the inside, over the bump and paint, and directly over to the dirt.. That second guy, he flipped off that bike pretty good- too much activity for these old bones!

Yeah...the bike bottomed out and hit the peg levering the rear off the ground. I was actually going slower than i had normally took that turn in practice so I was really bummed about the crash. I got a new shock after that! The other guy target fixated on me and then ran over my arm in the gravel. I actually never touched him...just provided the distraction. We all walked away so that was good. I along with the guys on the ninjas were amazed at how much faster the honda was through the corners! The back straight was a totally different story. It was a big track and I actually would have had a shot at winning which made it suck even worse!

Glad only you're ok after this, but man that seems like fun. I live in BF Texas and no track days like that in down here. Thank you for the uploads.

P.S. If it's any consolation, I was rootin' for ye!

You are a big boy Nikk and work that lil 250 hard.
with our lil cbr being so ******************** breathless there is no option but to belt it into corners so fast , if ya lose 1mph on the way in in equals 10mph lost on the way out.

Love it!
