Great job guys!

Glad you're ok Derek. If the bike doesn't want to buck you off the seat from time to time, then I guess you're not riding it hard enough. But by reading the other posts on the forum, you were smokin all day! So atleast it happened when most of the day was said and done.

Sounds like I missed a good one.Family duties come first though I suppose. Wish I could have been out there to watch the LMS crew holdin the home turf down......once again.

And Mr. Whoopie is running 1:38s? Geezus......I knew he was fast, but WTF? He's on a 750 right? Well I'll just go ahead and add him to my list of scary people......

Look who is being sensitive now. The fact is, it would not matter what tire the top 5 or 6 guys are running. They are fast and wiould be fast on anything (that includes Larry). So telling someone to run Pirelli if they want to go faster just isn't true. The rider is usually the limiting factor. If the bike is setup well around the rider and tires, then it is up to the rider to go fast.

The was because you quoted someone asking the secret to going fast at MSRH, you said it was your tires. So I gave you the because it is not your tires, it is the million laps you have around that track. No replacement to track time, YOUR going fast around the track, take some credit for your abilities.

If you want to discuss all of this further swing by my pit at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

John

I didn't say Larry was fast, I'm not saying anything about Larry. I'm pointing out that a Bridgestone rider was going faster than everyone but Ty (that includes all of the Pirelli riders)
