Post BHF 7.6.11

Awesome day yesterday....I'm still exhausted!!

So yeah I knew it was gonna be awesome putting my leathers on with a sunburn from the 4th, then when unloading Tuesday night I tripped over the wire on Dani's trailer door, got about 6 awesome bruises on one leg I'm getting just as bad as Terra

It was a hot day but everyone seemed to stay hydrated. I got my second win in the afternoon and doubled up with I sessions along with CR'ing in Novice, worked with many new riders that were there for the first time....but then it hit me last night

In the afternoon got to pass in my favorite turn, T5....and it was Marr She knew I was gonna do it, I was giggling in my helmet....then she got me back later in the day in the same turn when I took the Ducati HyperMotard 1098 out , I'm sure she was giggling too. I've gotten slower this year....wtf!!!!

I rode Dani's SV, didn't like it She rode my bike and I think she's hooked We'll see what kinda bike she gets next!!!

Milwaukee Ducati was a sponsor so they had a Monster, 848, Hyper motard and another one....so a few of us took them out. Not a fan of the hypermotard. I could see it being fun on the street but guess I'm just used to my bike. Don't get me wrong it was fun but just a different type of bike!

That was the last session of the day and I was done!!

Thanks to Jason and Jeremy for lubing my clutch cable in the dark Tuesday night

Till next time

Had a good time as well, 3rd trackday in the last 5 days so I was pooped. Unloaded the truck and went straight to bed lol

I thought the hyper motard was fun on the track, but I wouldn't want to race with it (sorry germany)

Thanks for putting this on motovid, it was a lot of fun riding with a bunch of new faces. Even in the heat

i had a shortened day yesterday...

6th lap of the second session I highsided exiting T6a. Managed to escape serious injury on landing, my foot being swollen bruised and a little sore is the worst part of it all. i did hit my head on the ground as the scrapes on the helmet show but it did its job and i only had a little bit of a headache for about 20 mins post crashing..

ive never gone for that rough of a ride before and its really disorienting even without serious injury. standing up initially didnt work so I ended up crawling about half way to the inside guard rail then signaling to the corner worker that I was ok. took a ride back in the ambulance and got checked out in medical aside from teh side effects of massive amounts of adrenaline I checked out fine. My day ended there and i decided to pack up after lunch.

damage to the bike isnt too bad really, i have some bodywork to do, but considering its some of the shittiest cheapest bodywork ive ever seen im amazed at how well it held up. Ill need to get the swingarm spool mount replaced and that’s about it, not counting the scrapes to my case cover which held up great

Glad to hear your ok. Gotta watch 6a, I think it is the turn with the most traction personality at BHF. In the rain, it's the slickest. In the morning, it's the slowest to warm up. The outside is slight off camber or flatter then the inside. Throttle control is key. Even the little SV spins occasionally there and when I grab a shift leaned over for 6B.

it was a suddel loss of grip in my case, ive slipped the rear a little thru there before but weds it was sticking every single time. according to my lap timer i had just run a personal best by a small margin and the lap i crashed on I had been feeling really good about and was probably going faster thru there than normal, and got on the gas earlier than usual as well... multiple factors combine to put me on my head...

Good day besides my crash (and a bunch of other people crashing)... I ended up crashing going in to the bus stop during the last session. I went in too fast and I was hard on the brakes and I tucked the front. I ordered a new set of tires, but with the 4th of July weekend, they were late and I didn't get them in time. Because of that, I was on worn out tires. I think a new front tire would have stuck. I have the crash on video and will post it once I edit it.

Other than that, I finally got my shock to stop tearing through tires and got the bike working right. Even on the junk tires I was turning times near my personal best. Once I get a new set of tires I think I should be able to blow by my best, unfortunately that's not til the CCS weekend.

Good to see all of you out there yesterday. My perfed leathers, exactly the same size as my non perfed, had been hanging on a rack for a year, and I decided to wear them yesterday.

Problem- they shrunk up hanging on the rack after a year of no use. When I put them on I could not move, and I did not gear up til right before heading out to video/CR the Ducati demo ride folks for the first session. They were so tight that I had to mount the bike with one foot on a peg, and stand to get the other foot on. After I got in the saddle with both feet on the pegs I could not move, so I had to bail out on the first session to go put my non-vented leathers on. Damn Me! LOL

I also tried out street tires for the first time in many years. I put the Dunlop Q2s on after seeing Rispoli do a 1:11 on them on a stock GSXR.

Was a little apprehensive after being so accustomed to race rubber and warmers for so long, however, I was very happy with their performance. Took only a lap or so the get used to the slightest squirm getting on the gas hard, but they hooked up a millisecond later and in the end, I am very impressed.

AWALK, I'm curious as to what issues you had with what tires? I'm having a issues also.

My morning went ok but I packed in early due to dehydration I think. I got a splitting headache around lunch and was all over the place in session 4. I have never left a dry track early, but I think it was the right choice.

Also, to all those who I made shit their pants by giving a late pit in waive at turn 7 in the blue group, I'm am truly sorry. I saw a bunch of dudes put a hand up late and I thought I missed the checker. I put my hand up before 7 not knowing I was being set up to be passed on the front straight. Fortunately everyone made it out alive and I learned an important lesson. Who gives a shit if you do an extra lap after the checker, DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST CORNER TO PUT YOUR HAND UP. I broke a simple rule that could have ended in disaster. Hopefully Wally will post the video, I think it could teach a lot about why the rule is important.

I had a great day. Splitting into 4 groups made for a good group size. I didn't have one session with a traffic jam, and I was able to consistently ride my best times ever. It was my first time with Motovid, and I wish I had more wednesday's off!

I run michelin power one competitions and I really like 'em. The past few days, my shock was tearing up my rear tire. It turned out I needed a stiffer spring. I swapped the spring during the day and it instantly fixed the tire wear problem. The only other "issue" I had was that they were old. They still grip like crazy, but they're not as forgiving as a new set. If I had a new front on during that last session, I probably wouldn't have slid on my ass. Either way it was my fall for crashing, but I learned a lesson.

I'm pretty sure performance index only matters for *overall* points, not individual classes.

Edit: I just looked it up in case it changed. Performance index is only used to determine the overall AM and EX ranking (and who gets the #1-10 plates for the following year), not the points for individual classes. For individual classes, points are points.

assigned in each series by overall points earned in all SuperSport,
SuperBike, Grand Prix and GT classes, multiplied by the riders
performance index and then divided by 1000. The rider with the highest
adjusted point total will be declared the “Overall Regional Champion” in
the Expert or Amateur category
.
Note that they don't mention Thunderbike or Formula 40, etc. - because some of the classes don't count towards the Overall finishing places.

LOL! Yeah. I could be wrong about that but I'm 99% percent sure that individual classes and class track championships have always been straight up points based.

Supertwins don't count either. So I will have less than 100 points at the end of the year and will not be an expert next year! So another year of sand-bagging... YES

isnt it written that if you snag the championship you are automatically bumped to the big leagues, regardless of points accrued?
