My first FAST School day - Vulcan at Mosport

My first FAST School:

My first day at the FAST School, in 2000, at an all Women's Day. FAST School is an wonderful way to learn about track riding, and improve your street riding too. I had a great group of women to enjoy my first track-school experience with - you can see from the photos just how intensely we enjoyed it :-)

Vulcan at Mosport:

Now here's a sight you don't see every day... a Kawasaki 500 Vulcan, 1992 belt drive model, on the internationally famous road course at Mosport July 2001.

It's a bit like riding an eel, but the I learned a great deal riding the Vulcan on the track.
This past summer, when I passed a rider on a 1947 Indian in the vintage racing practice sessions, I probably had more sympathy for what he was coping with than most of the other riders on shorter wheel base bikes. :-)

The Vulcan with it's majestic length does not make an ideal track bike, nor does it's flexy tube frame (which copes so well with street riding & touring duty) lend itself to an agressive track ride. It was still a great deal of fun to let the Vulcan stretch it's legs up the back straight, and test it's cornering clearance limitations. This may be why I had to have the frame welded the next winter.
