you were looking good out there man!...

don't rush it/be patient - stay smooth on your corner entry/exits and the seconds will start coming off your laptimes - believe me...

had a blast! - see you guys at the track!...

Monday was awesome to say the least. My R1 is soooo fast, I'm really impressed with the way Metric Motorcycles made my bike run out there. I was pulling the wheel off the ground at almost everyturn exit and even half way down the straight it was pulling the wheel up, absolutely awesome performance out of the 1. it was great passing all of those new liter bikes, im still a bit slow in the turns but my speed picked up quite a bit thru 1,2,7 and, 8. Next year i'll be using some different tires and hopefully i'll be able to drop another second or two off my best lap. still i was a little ahead of Jeff while he was doing some 2:09's, by the time i finally got a lap timer on my bike we had to exit the track b/c of a crash so i didnt ever get to see what i was running, but owell it isnt that important, i had a great time out there tearing it up with jeff henry and steveo...

I hate pulling the wheel up on corner exit because I always get head shake when it comes back down to earth. Rear shock and steering damper will be next year's upgrades...

Metric is a good place to take an older R1, he's got that champions edition sitting in the front that's set up pretty nicely.
