Congrats!
I'll have to check with the officials, but I do believe that is a new record at GSS.

I hold the record at Katy. Lowsided the mini in turn 1 on lap 1.

I've run in the mid 54's-55's at Grandsport. Larry I believe did a 50 flat on his ZX-6... or something close to that, I know our first time there I ended up turning 57's as my fastest.

nope. i think beginners try to concentrate too much on lap times and not the fundamentals. ever heard the saying "u gotta go slow to go fast"

when riding with a lap timer on the bike, most people have a tendency to focus on it and what it says rather than focusing on the track ahead. in turn that makes them slower and then they try to compensate by riding over their head making stupid mistakes and making them again even slower. bottom line is... if u wanna go fast. ride with fast people who know what the their doing. dont get caught in a rut of doin the same stupid mistakes over and over. follow faster riders, see what lines they are taking.

quit worring about settin the world on fire and get the basics down first

I agree 110%.
I could give a about lap times.
Consistency and predictability is what gets my respect.

come on Tom, Lap Timers are the only way to get faster. I'm just messing, I just enjoy being fast enough & predictable enough to run with the advanced group....

You are correct, lap timers are a good tool for the advanced guys, but what Jody was saying was refferring to NEW riders.

I'm like you, I just ride for fun, hence why the only bike of mine with a lap timer is my mini endurance bike.

gotcha, but even I don't use them....I'm not a racer, don't ever intend on being one, and just enjoy it for what it is. I do get a good chuckle out of all the BSing after sessions with people rattling off their lap times like they just set the track record though.
