8/12 - 8/13 Autobahn, NESBA Intro?

Guys and Gals,

If I wanted to stop by and perhaps do the NESBA Intro thingy what do I need do?

Is there something on their website I should peruse in order to participate and perhaps become a member?

Inquiring minds wanna know...

Thanks in advance,

Andy

You just need to sign up for the INTRO! (before it is full)

Do the intro-I was signed up for it, but won the free day. You dont have to pay for a membership, and there is little bike prep required for it.

What have you got to lose (except some pricey stock plastics if you ball it) But I have seen you ride, and dont think that will be an issue.

bring money and leathers and hope the B group isn't full for the rest of the day... because you won't want to stop at just two sessions.

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

Come looking for a 32' white trailer. Gold Excursion, that'll be me. (Bike #946)

If you guys get in, I'll go out and run some laps with you during your INTRO sessions.

Does your bike even go as slow as we will be going?

It doesn't really like going too slowly, it tends to heat up at low speeds. But I'll keep an eye on the temp. There are a couple of fast area on Autobahn North that everyone can get some great speed going, that'll let it cool down a little bit.

Either way, we are gonna have a blast this weekend! You guys are not gonna believe how fun this stuff is!

Ummm, she loved Miller, very fast bike, very fast track. Good fit. Now if only I could get the rider to stop parking it in T1 and T5 at MMP...

be sure to check out the MMP video in another thread.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

yep, Tina is riding both days. She is also signed up for the 4 remaining days at Putnam.

She'll be happy to see your neice again, she was fun at Blackhawk. I may or may not be there Fri night, planning on going to see Ron's band play Friday night.

John,

NESBA is Dunlop sponsored and yes the Dunlop guy, Matt Drucker of MD Racing will be there selling and mounting tires.

FWIW, track bikes usually (not all) run 180s for 600s and 190s for 1000s. Although my 12R has 200s on it. If you need 190s or 180s, it is easy to find take offs that have plenty of street miles left. For 200s, you would need to contact Drucker in order to have him bring it with him if he has it in stock.

http://www.mdracingstp.com/ or contact your favorite local dealer.
