POST 2012 Season / Last Midwest weekend

So boys and gals, I hope everyone had fun!

It seemed to be a bit sketchy on Saturday early on but was almost perfect Sunday afternoon.
I had fun, despite not really getting in the groove and having some muscle/ hand issues... oh well.

Fun times this year, I participated in every race in the UNL class and missed only 3 laps all year.

Well lets see if I do this again in 2013...


After Jason Farrell's Crash, things seemed to be a bit different. He went off into the wall in 2, moved the airbag, the tire stacks and ended back first against the wall. He is up and walking around a bit sore I guess...

Congrats Stefan on limiting ur crashing this year. You have come a long way since last year when you did more repairing than racing.

"And here's Dolipski with a couple nice wheelies down the straight" bike seemed to be running well yesterday.

Good job this year. Keeping it up and picking up the pace, well done.

Learned a lot in my first year of racing, hoping to put those lessons to use next year. All in all I had a pretty good season, didn't get the results I expected but I also didn't have the competition I was expecting. There are a lot of fast guys that joined the amature ranks this year on 600's, Carl Soltisz, Kolin Kozak, Ryan Christian, Zack Schumacher.... It made for some great racing and really made me push myself. I managed a handful of 2nd and 3rds in the middle weight races but never was able to get a first place finish, I was really hoping to be able to find that extra little bit but everytime I found something, so did the competition. Over the season I was able to drop my personal best a full second and in doing so gained a lot better feel and understanding of my riding and my motorcycles. I think I've finally reached the point where I can clearly feel the motorcycle and understand what it's telling me while I ride, I know when something is off, and I know when I need to back off to keep the bike shiny. Next year I plan on putting it to use and working on finding better setups and putting in some faster laps.

Hopefully next season the bike will have whiter plates and I'll have a bit better setup underneith me. The new bike is fantastic in every way except the shock which needs to be refreshed and changed up a little bit for my weight. I put off the shock work this season since I got the bike with only a couple rounds left but Sunday it really started to deteriorate fast and I wasn't able to get any kind of drive out of the corners without a whole lot of wallowing and movement from the rearend, i'm looking forward to trying it out fresh and seeing what I can do with it.

I also learned this season that wheeling out of corners is awesome and totally worth the $24/gallon of fuel it takes to do it lol...

I tell ya, once you turn the Wheelie control of for the last checkered and you decide despite that you are told the next wheelie is gonna cost you, to run a power wheelie all the way down past the tower, T1 approaches very fast...

Saturday Morning the bike pulled up in 5th Gear, without me jerking or janking, I was actually scared. I'm sure the power to the wheel with the temps and density of the air, was past 200HP. Once I found grip in 5, the bike wheelied sideways out of there.


Good Job everyone, It was great to see many good friends out there doing the thing!

GTU, please excuse my corner exits, I couldn't get on the throttle very hard especially the last half of the race without a lot of wallowing and sliding
