Blackhawk Vid, Onboard NESBA A Group

Fun weekend. Matt let me borrow his GoPro HD for a few sessions. Nice clear day, HD looks pretty sweet.

Used iMovie on my MAC to throw in a little "mood" music. (Yeah, I'm enjoying the afterglow of a great weekend at the track.)

Thanks to all of you guys (and gals) for making it a great weekend at this event.

First session after lunch on Sun, 7/3/2011. Got a bunch of the A group in this video

I was trying to get back down into the 10's, best the best I got was an 11.18. I heard Alantino pulled several 10's with a low 10.20 or something. He was riding really well.

Here's the next A session, I think it was 2nd session after lunch. Mr Blume was also riding very well, I was chasing him. Is it just me or did Brian pass the majority of the A group on pit road before taking to the track?

Those laps in the first video with traffic were still all in the 13/14s (based on the video time stamps). Wow.

Ron actually pays all of us to slow down for a session so it looks more impressive. I'm still waiting on the PayPal to show up though.











J/K - That's some damn nice riding Ron. Well done Sir!

Thanks for all the compliments guys. There was several guys out there riding very well this weekend, not just me.

Mr. Blume and Matt G were both running a very similar pace to where I was running. Steve P was giving that Aprilia beast all she could handle, as well as several others that I'm sure I'm forgetting.

I really believe that the skills and techniques that we CR's focus on teaching the members honestly produce real world results. Quick, consistent and safe.

Ron...next time we're at BHF, I would like to get some feedback/pointers for maximizing the 750's potential. I'm not looking for 10's, but 15's or 16's would be a reasonable goal for now. My best on Sunday was a 1:17.16 while working the I-group. I got some clear track and was chasing down the lead pack. Good times.

Fairly consistent 17's out in the A-group earlier.

LOL. So thats what its like to go fast in "A". Whenever I go out I only see like 3 or 4 bikes. And they are all passing ME.

Excellent Mr. Hix!
