MSR Houston / Lap Time Progress

Just gotta share my latest cherry pop at MSR Houston. I broke out of the 1:50's today in the CW direction (reverse). Managed a 1:49.98 in the third session and then two 1:49.4's back to back on the fourth session trying to stay in front of Allan - albeit unsuccessfully.. WOO HOO was I excited. Was a great day to watch the fast guys and learn. Thanks to Allan, Carlos, Steve, and the other folks for their help on the lines.

And.... I have helmet cam video on the 1:49.98. I need to edit it down then I'll post in the video section.

And, like last time with GixxerBill spanking me in order to keep my ego in check, today it was Allan running mid 1:40's on his 750 when I was timing and Carlos clicking off 1:43's regularly with a fast lap time an unbelievable 1:41.6 on a 600!!!!

So much to learn.....

You looked really good out there!!! Hard to believe how fast you are in the turns without ever touching the suspension or having sticky tires/warmers. If it wasn't for the additional 400 cc's on my bike, I would have been staring at your rear faring all day.

Hey Squoddy, you HAD THE CAMERA. Be sure to post that pic of us standing together. That's a riot. What's it like living so close to the ground?

Bad news, the helmet cam video is not worth the upload. The cam came off during the faster part of the session and it was pointed to high. Lots of interesting camera rolls and shots of my feet.

Total bummer. Need to get serious about the camera mount.

Yeah, that's because it didn't really happen. It was all a figment of your imagination and you have no proof. Wow. Not a Happy New Year.
