thats a great pic, hills!!! aww man, the crashing sucked, i thought we'd never quit but with a few tips from our bad team mate Romeo36, we found the proper "wet line" and quit crashing!!! thanks again to everyone who showed us support and was there in the pits to help out. the corner workers were right on top of us as soon as we crashed to check on us.

i blame my highside on playing around with the rear brake in the rain...i blame my low side on trying to test out the body positioning...

i think i need to spend a lot more time on the bike to find my comfort...it's a lot different from an nsr/nsf. i can't figure out the right position to find total confidence in the tires. i want to shave about 10 seconds by the next trip to the hill, and that will come with the confidence.

thanks Dr.! you did excellent yourself!

James, do you know what laps I was running? Results are not yet posted and I forgot to look for a print out. I was in the 2:07s last time I rode OHR with a stock NSR50.

The KTM 65 should definitly be able to go waay faster.

Last year (in summer) with optimum conditions, my CRF100 did 2:02s with me on it and 2:00 with a lighter rider.

Heck Mad Season put it in a whoppin 1:56-1:57 as a best laptime! If the F7 bikes can produce those kind of laptimes, the KTM 65 should have no problem touching 1:55s with better conditions.

The rain really did slow down everyone, the NSR rides like a , I'll be glad if i got under 2:15!

that's what I'm thinking...i lacked a lot of confidence with the tires and bike. I think 10 seconds off my time is easily doable when i find that comfort zone.

It was rainin... it was cold... first race of the season...

It'll get better as the season progresses! Heck it better! I don't intend on running 10-15 seconds of my best pace the whole year!

i need to straighten out the gearing, i've been lower on a test day i did there but like you said, the rain slowed everyone down and our team had no more time or room for crashes. we'll get down under the 55's. they were pulling away from me in the sprint race pretty badly.

No thread jack here but James did you see that #43 KLX 140 (Top Dog Racing) hunting you guys down? I told the boys ( Kevin Johnson-son- and Blake Neiheiser) to stick with the orange #65. Just don't fall if the orange bike does. Kevin did test turn #3 twice. Blake did squeeze in some 1:54 & 55's in the dry. He did a great job his first time out. Finished 4th in class.

Like the pic of the #11 Highlands Kawasaki Mini - Gateman Racing. Hard luck bit the #11. The motor started to sound a bit raspy. I'm sure it swallowed a bunch of water. Forty min. from the end the crank got to grinding and Steven Skobel pulled the clutch and hit the red button. We were in 2nd place at the time. Hoping for better luck next time. Look forward to seeing you guys at the next endurance.
