    20210208 - Coaching at Buttonwillow, California

    Got to spend Monday 2/08 at Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California.  It was a regular track day but 3 similar friends and I trained with a coach on our race bikes, 3 RC 390s and 1 R3.  Just for fun though I did a session on my Daytona but after having done several sessions on the little KTM, the Daytona was comparatively overwhelming.  Since I just had the suspension done I asked my coach to do a session on the Daytona so I could get data and some video.  It's kind of a fun watch with his video (mine, not so much):

    The little bikes are a lot of fun.  While I know this is a moto2 site, dicing it up with other small bikes and bigger bikes is a hoot.  There's something to be said for how quickly you can get to wide-open throttle and the whole concept of building momentum.
