that track is awesome, the grip is second to none, i even run dunlop qualifier street tires on that bike, if i had some gp slicks i would prolly be a little bit quicker through the turns and the grip is good but not great with those tires..

i need more motor though... wonder if i could slip a 125 2 stroker in that frame. that would be the then.

As far as my pride was concerned, I ran one full session that I was only passed by one rider. I found out later that it was Jody Hudson. I was passing a Duc 1098 when I blew that corner.

Huge thanks to Glenn on the green SV for loaning me the parts I needed to finish my day!! I'll have my own box of spares before my next track day.
If that was in "B" group, then that was me on Jody's bike
Jody rode it in "A" group

big fat guy = me
lil guy = Jody

What a blast! Like I was telling Shawn on the way home... even though it was hot and wayyyy too sunny... even though I was totally exhausted and my ankle was killing me... I wouldn't trade it for the world and can't wait to go do it again! LSTD FTW!!!
Can't wait to ride with you guys instead of hiding in the corner trying my best to keep you guys safe

had a blast today also finally learned how to get my off the seat, had fun chasing around gsxrstar in the morning before I moved up to B. I think you would have more fun in B the C riders were holding us up. Now I just need to find some rear set for SV draggin peg in almost every corner out there.

Thanks to the cornerworkers, participants, and staff. It was a great time.

I'm digging the two fiddy more and more. Just need to get rear sets, brake lines, some suspension work, and a dyno tune. So much for 3499.
