NESBA Photos: Gingerman 9/16-17/06

Post photos here if you have any from Gingerman this past weekend. Greg Kotlinski (gkotlin) took a few hundred, I will post some of the better ones of familiar faces and bikes here.

Here are the first few:

Barry wringing out the new Vesrah 750! Suweeeet Ride, Barry!


zeus-9R (Brent) ripping it up in "I"



I guess Greg enjoyed the time out on the track.... LOL!!


Our resident heroine Melissa riding with two broken collar bones and a broken scapula.


Morrand and ChiTownS4 going at it.


The Sklossmonster himself graced us with his presence!



Resident track expert Blarney (Tom Tracey) showing everyone the lines.



Wink going slow as usual.


More pics to come...

Thanks for taking the pics Greg!

I enjoy taking the photos. Thanks for letting me use the camera Wink!
I had to do something to follow up my seminar on low sideing Saturday afternoon. I have a wrenching and repair seminar in my garage this week if anyone is interested. Next weeks seminar is fiberglass and body repair.

I would keep the knee in the grass throughout that half of the little carousel, but the thing that makes it look funny is that I was sliding it through there, so the rear is stepped out a little there, relative to the turn.

Thanks for the offer! You guys rock. I'm actually pretty good at it myself. I got the glass from a racer that deemed it to much work to repair. I'm just bummed that I spent every night for a week in the garage, fixing and painting it, just to wad it up on it's 3rd day of use. But I guess thats why we have it.

That was me. I went to every corner station except for the last one. Your very welcome. I like taking the photos. The staff at Gingerman was great. They told me to go wherever I wanted to that was safe. I'm pretty impressed with a few of these. I used to do some concert photos but haven't done to much in a few years. The second shot of you and the second of Marshall are pretty darn good if I do say so.

A few are blurry and the lighting isn't quite right. This is definately an art. I was also playing with a few camera settings to see what I got. We'll see how I do at Autobahn.

I hit the inside rumble on T6 (second left hander of the horseshoe turn). I was using the brake markers for the next corner for a reference, and started looking at it too soon. I ended up going RIGHT over the inside rumble, throwing me off the seat, head over the bars, me thinking "um, this is going to hurt". Managed to save it, but I had to pull the leathers out of my ass after that.
