As I get older I've been thinking about the continuing education of my son who I ride with.

We both need "help" with our skills so I was thinking on a few Father/Son Track Days every year.

Now we'll need tire warmers and I have rear wheel lifts for both my V11 (one possibility) and GRiSO 1100 (definitely) but I'm having problems with a front paddock lift for both.

At home I just use a scissors jack and blocks to lift the front but that's when the bike is tied down to the lift table.

I'm looking for something like a pitbull lift that's quick to use.

Any suggestions??

Don't waste your time and money on fancy gizmos.
1. There's a big orange ball in the sky, park ya bike in the sun.
2. When I raced we had 1 sighting lap to warm up the tyres on a short track. No Probs.

We were always told, nobody's racing for sheep stations, just a cheap plastic cup worth $2.

Even doing track days on road tyres, I couldn't handle the low cold pressures everybody recommended, so I would start much higher, but still get my tyres up to full temp within 2 laps.

The secret is, go fairly hard from the start. That's what generates the heat. Riding around like a pussy flip flopping side to side will only get you warm tyres at best. Worst case, you'll get clobbered by some numpty going 240 down the back straight. I've seen it happen.

Want the most clear track in your graded session, go out first and go out hard. People who are genuinely faster, will pass you.
The numpty with his turbo 'busa and 340 rear tyre will just be a fat mobile chicane, slowing everyone else down on every corner.

Would love to be there, Cheers!
