After our first track day with Penguin Racing in 2001, a few of my friends really got interested in sportbike motorcycle racing.

I'm happy with some track time once or twice a year and weekend rides out to deserted country roads. My motorcycle enthusiast friends from Orlando are older and wealthy so the racing bug bit them hard.

They went all out by buying track only bikes, Ohlins shocks, race rubber and other modifications designed to quicken their lap times around a track.

These pictures are from the CCS practice session on Saturday December 7, 2002 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In the first two pictures in this row, you can see my friend's Yamaha R6 lower bodywork filled with rocks from the gravel traps. Those traps are designed to drastically reduce a rider's speed once he has crashed or gone off the track. It's better to scratch your bike up and get a few bruises then to slam your motorcycle into a wall.

If you're a photography enthusiast, you're probably wondering what camera I used. I took these photographs with a Nikon D100 digital SLR camera and a Nikkor 70-300mm zoom lens with a Tiffen polarizing filter.
