Lol, you said Dubber...


Thanks, I'll probably just spectate this one for a few hours and try out another track for my first TD.

I'm sure he'll get out in the other two groups too, maybe you could twist his arm, so you can learn to twist your wrist!

Well, if Bubba is loaded up with students, don't forget, we've got some other #1 plate holders from their respective classes, as well as the #1 in class endurance team members, etc, etc, etc...

If you're really lucky, you'll get me! I've only got one race win and a third in class though...

You are riding in the am and working pm, right? Am I thinking of the right person? If not, we need to make sure you're riding am and working pm so you can get the 'round robin and hook you up with an instructor.

a "tour" around the track at a slower pace....and a "get to know" of the raceline.

basically a slow lap so you know where you are supposed to be on the track....this way it'll help so you're not all over the track when they let you go out on your own. knowing the "race line" is the key to riding the track.

screw up the line, and you'll screw yourself for the next turn....so stay focused, and follow the leader on the round robin

thank you sir, I am a motocross racer so I sort of know line choices. I know street track is going to be something that is completly new to me. I am corner working second half of this day so that gives me some more time to watch peoples lines.

Cool. Check in with me at the grid in the am, and then get with the rider's meeting. After the main rider's meeting, there will be another rider's meeting for the "C" group and "B" group riders who have never been to that track. During that meeting, they will explain the procedure for the morning sessions- as Tony said, the first session is the "'round robin", which shows you the direction of the track.

You'd better get used to that new bike in the "C" group with your students and then try to get Bubba to slow down enough to tow you in the afternoon

Tell me something I don;t know Tom!

It's going to be an interesting day to say the least. 2x's the power I'm used to, different power band from the V-twin, super sticky tires, completly different chassis/suspension setup, and having been away from the track the last 4 months

I'm still pretty eager to get out there. Just going to take it easy
