Street bikes. Yeah I have been on them a couple of times. They can be both terrifying and fun at the same time. I have absolutely no knowledge about them, I'm a car guy. What I do know is that they look crazy cool going around a racetrack as fast as your skill level will take you. Last Friday we got asked to come out and shoot a customer appreciation day at Grattan Raceway for Fox Power Sports. Of course I jumped on it. It's my thing. A day at the track is still a day at the track, even if you're not racing. The smell of fuel, that exhaust sound, squealing tires, it all excites me.
But even cooler than the bikes were the people riding them. So many people from different backgrounds. I have had a fair share of track days (in the racecar) and never felt a vibe quite like this. Everyone was so pumped! It's Friday. You are not at work! It is Hotlap time. So many smiling faces and happy people. It was a long hard day but at the end I was happy to be apart of it. Oh yeah and I got some really cool shots too! I think I need a track bike.
