well I think I'm still a little wasted from Saturday.
I got a call from Bwa in the afternoon warning me about how screwed up the highways were because of a big truck accident that pretty much shutdown I80 & I94 for hours.
So instead of taking off as planned, Mikdivad and I enjoyed a nice dinner, tv and slept in. We got up around 2:30am Saturday morning and headed for the track. The bikes got cleaned off in some pretty heavy rain on the way down to Putnam
Morning rains delayed getting on the track until about 10am. Riding the wet track and taking it easy trying to get a dry line estabished meant that we were doing less than blazing laptimes around 1:45
More rains came and Jack played host to a couple of us inside his trailer as Kruz brought out OptimusP's copy of the Faster DVD (thanks John/Mike
I guess Kruz was a little tired because he dozed off. He woke up when he heard trucks on the track drying off some of the rain. Seemed a leeeeeeeetle peeved when he saw his SUV out on the track being piloted by other members of TeamGoFast
The afternoon sessions were great when the sun came out and the track dried out.
Trying to follow Alan F. around on his new green kawi was impossible. If you thought he was hard to follow on his old R6...forget about it now
but damn did he get the laptimes down when I was trying to keep up.
Since Mikdivad was on a short leash we had to pack it up and leave that night. Another 5 hour ride home was pretty uneventful and tiring until the left tire on trailer blew up. Spent 15 quick min changing that out. Thank god we took the spare tire with us.
Pretty good day... considering we spent 10 hours on the road to/from in order to get about 4 good sessions in at Putnam. Geez, I'm never gonna be that much of a road warrior again...YOU HEAR ME DAVID?!?
