So after working non stop for a week trying to put out these stubborn fires, I took the half day off that i have and went to Thunderhill, Let me say OMG it was freakin hot!
in the morning the temp. was around 93 degree's and noon time it ended up being 106 degree. Temp. on the track reached 116 when i last checked. My muscles started to cramp up and i got dizzy, so i pitted got some ice water, and went back out.
There was about 50 riders total, So i felt like i had the track to myself. I started out in the B group, and the last two sessions i went to the A. It was a perfect track day minus the extreme heat, oh ya and one rider down:nono

While waiting for my track photo's here's something to look at.
Hopefully some of you guys can join the party next time.
sooo enjoy...ya bitch

to those who passed me up, pass me with caution please..

don't you wish you can rape a motard bike:fact

give me a break ok! it was freaking 106 degree, i had to strip down to my chonies in order to stay cool....more pics coming!

there wasn't really anyone in the B group.. And most of my friends are A group riders...They owned my ass like no other day, i tried to catch up:nono
it's pacific track time..I hooked up with Cory Call, and tried to follow his lines...And damn near went off the course when he slide his back end into turn 14,then stared at me while doing a wheelie all the way to turn 1:nono damn showoff...Micheal Earnest broke his right hand in a AFM race yesterday,so he didn't go out like he usually do. a month ago i had leaking forks on my R6, so i decided to go with the racetech springs and valves, oh ya and changed my fork oil. I had Dave re-do my suspension

cool

cory and michael are awesome guys. cory has some wicked line's, he loves to go paint to paint. earnest isn't quite like that.

take my advice with a few grains of salt but, you have to remember at a 2.18 pace you don't need the entire track like you do if you are running sub 2 minutes. you can run a 2.18 from mid track anywhere on the course. you dont need to go way out wide every entry and go back way out wide on every exit while running in the 2.20's. if anything that is making your lap times even higher because you are covering more ground at the same speed as you would be if you kept right down the middle. tighten your line up and you'll drop 3 seconds without doing a single other thing. believe me.

im actually quite surprised they let you in A doing those times. its always more fun riding with friends though, that's for sure. glad they let you, must have been a pretty empty day (which are the best kind) :)

you should have seen micheal's wreck...if you look on gotbluemilk.com and look for his honda cbr (number 4) for sunday july 6th you can see his glove come off and the bone sticking out..He's a supertrooper, he was there in time for the riders meeting.he's getting surgery tomorrow. Im working on my body positioning, i'm trying to get a riding style justlike jason disalvo where he doesn't knee drag but super lean angle.

another piece of advice, do what works for you. its good to strive towards other people's ways, but his exact way might not work well for you. my buddy drags his elbow b/c he sticks them out like spies (he does have a lot of lean angle), and i don't drag elbow (well i have) but i generally don't and i get my bike cranked over farther than him. sticking my elbows out does not work for me *shrug*. go for what works for you. everyone is different.
