Tip & How-To about Motorcycles

Motorcycle / car racing, and Life, improve lap times dramatically

Dear Friends, flat trackers especially, and to those on the sprint car tracks, and through the mountains and up the canyons...

Here is how to get a whole lot faster...and a lot safer... and quickly. In a couple of afternoons believe it or not.

Source of this is my own experience on motorcycles, AMA flat track and cross country events such as the Ensenada Grand Pix and Willseyville in Northern Calif, 1/8 mile, quarter mile, and mile dirt ovals.,, and from one of the greats of greats... Mr. Jack Gordon, who passed away a few years ago, he had won millions on the worlds car tracks in the 50's and 60's and sponsored my err... warped bruddah in sprint cars.. I asked Jack just a few days before he passed, still eating junk food by the way, at age 89... I said 'Jack, what do you want to leave behind in the line of advice for us up and comers (I was 62 at the time)

Jack said "Never ever race the competition, never. Let them pass you if they can, just let them go, do not race them"

Now folks Jack, one of the worlds greatest actually said that, and he said that my brothers problem was he got excited and raced the other racers...and that was his fatal mistake.

Yes indeedie Jack said that..and it fits what I learned decades prior... magic for sure. And since I’m almost 70 now, and Fixya is here I am going to spill the beans...Yes I am. I am indeed.

But first you must honor yourself, and mankind, and Jack by being respectful to all you encounter in life, and on the track, no matter how vicious the competition... you must be respectful or the Gods will zap your *** out of the saddle for being a ****. Don’t be one. Stand tall and decent, and absolutely cream them on the race track, politely if not with err..some sort of edge that words cannot explain.

I am going to leak this to you in a form that you will never be quite sure..but will think about the rest of your life in all you do.

Control is the name of the game. If you practice out on the ragged edge, out of control, you will never learn to ride or drive or live with infinite finesse... and let me tell you... all the power, and cold blood running up your spine is in finesse.

So please, ride or drive ever so slowly..slowly.. slowly..slowly.. on a stop watch, 2 notches slower than exquisite finesse allows.. Never ever faster than that, keep taking laps, and keep slowing down... and you will see as I did... you will learn the magic of sliding a haul *** motorcycle into a 100 mph turn with both of yer footsies on der pegs! Now that is something you know. You will find pics of #15n Jennifer Snyder, age 17 just signed at the time by my erstwhile slight acquaintance... Mad Dog Davidson as an HD Factory pro rider! First girl in history to show the men how it’s done... I come to tears just thinking about it.. then, oh god, she clipped the outside rail at Springfield, shattering her hand and arm and shoulder and leg coming into second place...with everyone in the stands on their feet.

Jenn took it to the line.. in second, like Sammy Tanner did a decade earlier...but never fully came back. For me though she lives forever. Remember Jenn Snyder.

Getting back to the point... ride slower than molasses but with absolutely perfect, impeccable control at all times...and chills will begin going up and down your spine and you will be turning laps, safely, in control and at world class speeds.

a few details... you must do it right. Have the timer standing beside the track with a stop watch and marking you 50 or 100' away as you approach and have established say a lap time of 45 seconds. Then after that he just holds up the number if fingers needed to show your time as you pass... 3 fingers for 43 seconds etc.

What you will find is that the laps you expect at 39 seconds, come in at 49 seconds...and the laps you felt slowest on were the ones you felt totally in control and slow on run 38 seconds... for example.

That what you will find out... you will be unbeatable..concentrate on fitness, diet and decency... and you will walk tall in all of life and be unstoppable on the track.

Best Regards, Phil Scott
