2010 too fiddy

another coming soon....






RideSmart Weekend, How was it ?!!!

I got to ride my 250 on Saturday with the rest of the Halffast boys and had a blast. Two of our Beta riders were able to get some good seat time. Was really chilly in the morning, and stayed cool but the track was good if you were mindful of it. Couple of bad crashes, but thats expected with the cold day and chilly wind. The last hour of sessions on Saturday had a little drizzle, but it stopped quickly. It was fun watching Chris5.0 and Rykoson chase Blamdiggity around the track and making them work to chase down his cbr500 on their little 250's. Lot of good and familiar faces around the paddock made for a great day. I was supposed to ride Sunday but had to leave because I had to help a friend pick up a GROM!!!!



How was your weekend at the track.

It was great!!! I pitted with blamdiggity and it was crazy seeing his tires when he came back to the pits. Only saw him on that track once and he was getting it through sugar and spice.

I improved my personal best by 5 seconds which was awesome. Learned a lot and can't wait to get back out on the track.

Awesome weekend with my boys

Got some more seat time and picked up the pace allot more and started to brake later on allot of the turns. Im doing way better going through key hole now, all i did was get off the bike more to where i have the pavement/grass in my peripheral while looking through the turn. I Also got in a little trouble Saturday

Haha you were going fast enough that I would only see you once a session!

Also for the guys that go to the track, make sure to browse through all of his pics. You can learn a lot about your BP and what you really are doing. Then to help out hart photography, buy at least one picture. It's $8 after using the code he provides to everyone.

Yeah 140whp really helps on the straights. Sorry if I held you up, I figured I got enough ahead of you on the straights to not hold you up in the turns.

No you had a good pace through the turns. I was the guy that passed on the inside and was shown in class

Thought that was just because of a 10 year old out of state warrant? Sucks. But oh well.
