great races at the hill! race report....hopper edition

CLIFF NOTES IF YOU DONT WANNA READ

1st place in Lightweight Twins
3rd place in D Superbike (was 1st, story down below)
7th place in C Superstock (could've been better, story below)
11th place in C Superbike (story also below as to why)

great races at the hill! race report....hopper edition
_______________________

so the weekend started out with the rain on the way to the hill. the toy hauler near jack knifed my truck..... stains indeed. broke my muffler clean off when i turned into turn 5. missed all the practice in the morning, got out there halfway through the last round of practice, so at least i got a few laps in.

RACE #6 (C SUPERSTOCK)

placed 7th. without my muffler on, my rpms were pretty much DEAD and bogging it's brains out @ 12k-14k RPMs.......so i was forced to short shift at 12k rpm. oh well, lesson learned.....rig the pipe on better

RACE #8 (LIGHTWEIGHT TWINS)

PLACED 1st!!!!! my first win, and it felt great. seeing that this is probably my 5th time ever riding the SV650, it's bone stock motor with a katana yoshi pipe rigged on , and i did absolutely NO practice on it for the whole weekend...i think i did just fine. some extremely close riding, paint trading, elbow rubbing racing.....but i finally took the lead and opened up the gap.

RACE #9 (D SUPERBIKE)

placed 3rd!! another podium....i lead the race in 1st place for about 5 or 6 laps until i ran off the track and lost 12 seconds, 3 people passed me while i was trying to get back on the track, i got back on and managed to catch 2nd and 3rd place, and i took a tight squeeze for 3rd, could've taken 2nd, had my front wheel up the inside of them already, but then they probably would've crashed and burned down the hill, so i let off and ended up getting 3rd. dumb mistake cost me 2 positions.

RACE #16 (C SUPERBIKE)

placed 11th RIDING MY SV650 vs. the inline 600's!!!!! race officials decided to BAN my gsxr600 from riding the rest of the day until i get a muffler put on, they said it was ringing their ears when i would pass by. i couldn't rig one up in time, so i took my SV650 to race against them inlines.

great races at the hill! race report....hopper edition

Congrats man, sounds like a lot of fun. I really want an SV650 for a track bike. Maybe sometime this summer I'll try to nab one...

I'm a sucker for twins, and I'd really like to try one on the track.
