I'll be trying to get down to 1:56 this year from a flat 2 min at Thill east. A mid-season bike change might slow me down but we'll see.
Great to see you guys still enjoying the track! I haven't been claimed by the KGB, but by something much more insidious.... parenthood. Going to keep the bike as a track only toy, but likely there are no outings for me this year. While it's not looking promising for me for the near future, I'm looking forward to spawning little enduro & track paddock-dwelling pocketbike people.Sooo... it took the inversion table and "Relief Factor" to make the back pain go away. I emailed my dad the ingredients and he said its all good stuff and he told me which each ingredient does if anyone is interested.
Less than a month till the first track day. Bike should be ready by next Sat. First track days for me will be:
PTT Sonoma Feb 23-24, Carters at Sonoma 3/4, T-Hill East 3/9 and possibly 3/10. I'm not sure about 3/10 because I want to do the open track day at Buttonwillow 3/15. Still working out logistics and expenses since the first AFM race is 3/16-3/17 at BW.
Anyone else have AFM racing or TD plans yet? If so, post them up. :smile2: The track days are always better when you meet up with other forum members like:
@RR1 Did the KGB get him? He hasn't been heard from since the trip to Russia
@simes007us has his bike for sale
@velazcod was selling stuff and recovering from injuries
Haven't met either of the latter 2 but hope to.
Unless my memory has completely failed, @TWITCH is in Sacramento but he has gone green. Traitor. J.K. Pretty sure you will end up with a 2020. In either case, we will want your opinion for comparison purposes. :wink2:
Edit: Forgot to mention @Endless Rode with him a few times in the vicinity of Alice's Haven't seen him at a track day. Think he is still on a Sumo.
There's no way I'd be up for committing to Sonoma until the week before.My kitchen is remodeled and my last cpa test is 2/22, the day before my first track day of the season.
I’m ready >
I’ll be riding rain or shine >There's no way I'd be up for committing to Sonoma until the week before.
That place can just flip from fine to flooded and slippery with very little rain.
Lack of Laguna days this year will mean more Sonoma and THill (and having a decent tow vehicle finally).
The red sticker seriously limits year around riding possibilities. :frown2:was going to get a KTM 250cc 2 stroke till I found out it would limit me to about 6 months riding.Red sticker. Carnegie, Hollister, maybe learn to leave the ground briefly and ride Diablo MX.
You got a new Rrrrrr?!!Just wondering if anyone will be attending Pacific Track Time's T-Hill weekend 8/17-8/18?
Nothing has gone according to plan this year. I've only done 2 track days and zero races. :frown2: I'll be attending both days and riding my HP4 and the 2020. Hopefully things will come back quickly as I really want to do the Sonoma AFM races at the end of the month. :smile2:
I saw his bike a THill West weekend I did in July. That little piece on the right side is so cheap feeling and was broken in at least 3 places. Someone else had a 2020 as well.Cory got the other but he has to ***** his bike out. Everyone seems to get to demo it. I'm sure a deal was cut. :laugh:
I don't mind it too much, it's super technical, it can actually fun as hell but you definitely have to trust that front endAlso, I do not like West in reverse, but I can't brake and turn for **** so Turn 7 is terrifying. And every other turn is a blind uphill/downhill entrance.
I wanted to do the 18th but I'm out of town that weekend. I'll be at Sonoma on the 30th for AFM Friday, I'll be with the HustleHard Racing crew.Thinking about doing the 18th though and maybe the 30th at Sonoma.
I have zero feel for anything still, so I don't know where the limit is and if I'm skirting it or 50% away from it.
