Post Memorial Day Weekend

I only made Monday, but had a great time. I wish the surface would have been more predictable, the crash car went out a number of times, including once for me. I was feeling really good, and wasn't have any issues with traction, until I ended up on my butt. I am not sure exactly what happened, my guess is not being smooth on the throttle or moving on the bike while in the corner, but my back end slid out at the double apex right leading onto the front strait of the north course. No damage to me, and all my gear is re-usable (helmet cam was on through the whole thing). The bike needs some minor odds and ends, and should be back to ridable shortly.

Cheers

I am glad you're ok and look forward to seeing the video. the conditions due to all the rain we had the 2 days before meant you had to be very cognizant of the surface. t4 north/ 15 full had that water strip which made the corner a little difficult to deal with. Kind of sucks but nobody can control the whether...damn rain.

SD's post Memorial Day:

Overcrowded rifle shoot got rained out on last stage.

Basement Flooded, everything except ammo crates and gun stuff destroyed.

Car broke down en route to dinner tonight- pushed it 1/2 mile at Rt.59 and I-90.

Hooah.

Here's the vid. Sorry for the orientation, forgot to switch after mounting to the headlight. I don't have video editing software, if I anyone can fix I would be very appreciative.

Had a good time seeing all the familiar faces, as for riding shit happens I guess. I did Sat & Sun., the 2 wet days. Rode in the rain/drizzle a little but called it a day early both days. The South course is a different animal than North when wet. South was slick as hell and had little ponds all over. Looks like mother nature won this weekend LOL!!

Was not there Monday but imagine that the track was super green with that powerwasher-like rain we had. Not to mention that the heat yesterday really takes a toll on the body/mind.

I had an awesome time this weekend.
I thankfully did not have any serious traction issues, just a little slide here and there.
I want to thank Bam Bam for being an awesome coach on Monday i had a blast!
I never thought I could ride as fast as I was Monday.

Amazing weekend and first trackday. Thank you to STT for running such a great and organized event. Thank you Terra and Mouse for putting us up on Saturday night. Terra you were a great coach and I had a lot of fun following you both days despite the rain. Mouse thanks for being encouraging on Sunday for me to go out despite the wet track. I learned a lot and how nice rain tires would come in handy on days like that. Also wanted to say thank you to Jason for the rideshare and giving me tips throughout the weekend, we had a great pit.

Big props to Shelly for setting up the bbq! That food was all but gone in an hour!

My first day started off with a belly pan fire followed by a lowside after lunch on Saturday but I still had a blast and can't wait for the next one. It was great meeting so many helpful and fantastic people.

saturday morning green track adn my head wasnt in it
saturday afternoon got a partial good session after lunch then the rain started, that ended the riding for the day

sundaymounted up a borrowed set of rain tires in the morning and finished just in time to have lunch and dodge a friggin monsoon. the rain stopped in the late afternoon and the track was opened as an open unlimited session, I got to go out on rain tires it took a long long time ta gain any sort of confidence on then but little by little i picked up the pace seeing what they would do and WOW its almost like riding in the dry... until youre behind someone then youre gonna get wet, and dirty. My bike is absolutely filthy
Monday morning woke up early and took the bicycle out for a lap to see what the track looked like... flowing and standing water in all sections I switeched the bike back to my normal tires and waited for the heat sun and wind to dry up the track the afternoon sessions got progressively better with the last couple sessions being almost full pace capable with only a couple isolated wetspots

all in all not a bad weekend but not great either with the rain and subsequent high water table

Upright, running like a champ, tires are scrubbed in nice and dogging people on their modern sportbikes. It has a bit of a flat spot around 3/4 throttle but can easily be riden right through. It also is puffing a little smoke but nothing to worried about I don't think. It doesn't seem to be consuming oil and from talking to people it seems the smoke is only on the off throttle which would be valve guides / seals. The bike is in Joe's van all ready for the AHRMA event, no need for any more testing and tuning.

As far as the weekend weather went Saturday and Sunday mornings we did get some dry race track but the track was never completely dry. Yesterday the track got better and better and by the last 2 sessions it was almost perfect. There were some spots that that never really dried though.

The weather is just one of those things we have to deal with in a sport like this. It's all part of the ballgame. Wet / sketchy track conditions weed out the less experienced people and show maturity of other riders who can keep the bike upright. Going out on a wet track and riding per the conditions and per your riding ability creates a great learning environment and it's great for working on basic skills on how a motorcycle works.

I'm sorry about anyone who balled their bike up or got banged up this weekend. I've been there and there is always a chance. Slowing down a little and working on basic skills is a tough thing to do sometimes. We all want to hit it hard and rail but just riding the bike at 50% sometimes and being ok with that can help prevent a fall or a hospital visit

Hey bro, it's always a pleasure and thanks for the brewskies. I'm sorry you fell down. You weren't alone. The track conditions were WAY sketchy. The good thing is you fall good and didn't get hurt. Fuck the bike. The thing could burn to the ground for all I care. Your health is the most important. We all have to go to work in the morning and pay bills.

El Fuego!!




I had a great time, even in the rain. Traction was sketchy, but it was fun finding the edge of grip. I know what the bike is going to do with a push, a wobble, a small step, a tire spin, and a big slide now.

Thanks to Chris McVey for coaching me on Monday afternoon. Helped me with body position and reading the damp / dry track conditions. He was also witness to my high side save in turn 1 of South. (pure luck!)

Great seeing everyone again.

For me it's a weekend I'd rather forget, even though I didn't crash. Nothing could have been done about rain on Saturday and Sunday but Monday's crash fest could have potentially been softened. I understand there are elevation changes at ACC that cause water to get onto the track, but not in every corner. There was standing water where there shouldn't have been (9 and 1B come to mind instantly) and nothing was done about trying to dry the track until lunch - if I'm wrong please correct me. At other tracks, I often see crew squeegeeing or blowing water off the track with great success (be it in the morning if forecast is good or during lunch if it rained in during morning sessions) - didn't see that at Autobahn.

Obviously, it's rider's responsibility to ride within their ability and track conditions. Having few more dry corners wouldn't necessarily lower the crash tally on Monday, but it wouldn't hurt to try. After all, it's a matter of safety.

Nick, we appreciate extra hour you bought us

See you all at Gingerman

Nope we're riding rabbits. We think we're fast, then Grasshopper passes us in the corner looking backwards on the Turdle, giving us the finger.

Yes, he was riding that SV really good. I worked with him a little bit. The only problem I saw is he was death gripping the bars on the brakes. Besides that he was riding quite well.

plumbers rule.
Yeah he did and the SV sounds soo good too! I enjoyed watching his bike get a lil bit air born on the back straight and he even left a darkie coming out of turn 5 (I think) on the N course! Dude made me dig a little deeper to get by than I was comfortable with at first considering the track conditions (and the amount of crashing) but in the end he made me realize that there was good traction out there (not as good as a full dry day of course) so great riding indeed. I had 2 pretty good sessions, funny thing is I didn't even drag a knee all day lol. It was a pretty good day yesterday, hope your feeling better Doug.

Ride Fast, Ride Smart
