Post BHF 8/30

What an awesome day to be at the track. I really thought I'd miss riding yesterday but helping Eva get her feet wet was rewarding in alot of ways.

I'm proud of ya babe! You did great!! Lots of progress throughout the day & I could really see things coming together by mid-afternoon.

A HUGE thanks to Steve for helping her throughout the day! A new CR, but long time racer, he went above & beyond the call of duty EVERY session making sure she was getting the right stuff

Chili cookoff was awesome too & a huge success. I think I heard around $7k was raised for air fence at BHF, which I think is being matched by NESBA!

Not sure who's the chef behind # 18 but I loved it. Spicy enough to let you know it's a serious chili. Unique enough to stand out but not so unique it's not chili anymore. Nice complex flavor too

That's all for now. I'm sure Eva has much to add.

yeah, i had an awesome day. Missed the cookoff but made sure I donated what I could, I also heard nesba raised $7k and with that match means $14k in total!!!

As for my riding, I improved leaps and bounds again. It's only my second full trackday (plus an intro) so I'm still getting a feel for the track environment, but I'm getting more comfortable. I missed my second session because turn one was still trying to sort out my suspension, 20k miles on the bike and still had factory suspension and settings, whoops, atleast i gave them a challenge haha. Went out for my third session and was completely amazed how great the bike felt, they did an awesome job and the bike made me way more confident. Throughout the day I got smoother and faster as my comfort level grew, I worked on nailing down all the body positioning advice I was given on this forum after my last trackday and I think I got it pretty close, one control rider even told me I had excellent body position, and since that's what I set out to work on, it was very satisfying to have it acknowledged, so thank you to everybody that gave advice last time I posted pictures, and thank you to TurnOneRacing for getting my bike squared away, sorry it was such a pain!

Troy it was good pitting next to you and Eva, Eva, I got a chance to watch one of your last sessions and one of your first sessions, you were looking good out there! Big improvement towards the end of the day over the beginning, keep it up!

Huge CLSB presence for the trackday and chili cook-off. Awesome turnout!

Jeremy- You were looking really good out there. Kim and I made sure your generous donation was a part of the $7k raised.

I did alright for being a year since back on the track. If I am going to keep riding the RC on the track it needs some work to get it a bit better, I had a hard time passing new 600's even with a good setup, and the high mount pipes however good they may look really interfere with foot position.

Chili was awesome I am glad I stuck around for it. Who ended up winning? I thought Stives was by far the best one there.

It was great to be back at the track with NESBA yesterday. Good to know that 2 months off didn't set me back too far - actually was running slightly faster times than earlier in the season. Still not fast, but I certainly had fun.

Jeremy, you're looking great out there! Especially considering that was only your 2nd track day. Nice riding!

The chili cookoff was awesome. Nolan and I had to leave before the festivities ended, but it sounds like once again NESBA finished the night with generous showing! I'm still waiting to hear which chili won at the end of the night - my vote went to Stive, of course!

Thanks to all of the CRs - especially Chad (CTrank) who rode 5 straight sessions in 80+ degree heat just to coach me a bit. I really enjoyed riding with you again!

Which number did Stive make? I must've tried 6 or 8 chilis & several of them were really good.

What an awesome weekend! It was great to see everyone again!

After nearly a year off from riding the track, I was nervous bout hoppin back in to the advanced group, but after the first session it came right back to me, and by the end of the day, I'm pretty sure I set a new personal best (can't find the lap timer after moving).

Chili cookoff was even better than last year. Many thanks to the guys that got this thing together $14,000 is incredible! Also thanks to all that voted for my chili! as has been said already, I did defend my title as chili champ, and it was pot #14 (hmmm, a little forshadowing... pot 14 wins, 14k raised in cash??? ha). There were some tasty chili's out there for sure, thanks for the compliments though!

Anyone who wants the recipe, hit me up with a pm and I can send it to you.

And I'm not sure who the guys were that were up late drinking last night, but it sure sounded like it was a good time

Again, awesome weekend, and great seeing all of you again!

Wow! What a great weekend! Had a descent day Saturday, spent my time learning the track and getting comfortable there (those orange dots help) Spent today really working on smooth transitions and speed. Got to run 3 sessions with the Awesome Heath Locum : Big time help! Overall outstanding weekend and can't wait to see you guys at the next one... Big thanks to Turn One Racing for the brake-pads and suspension set-up, it paid off dividends today! Also a big thanks to Alex and Steve for the tools and suggestions, much appreciated!








Oh yeah... and I got bumped to "I"

It was truly an awesome weekend. Good to see all my Nesba friends again. I took over 700 photos on Saturday. I have tons of post processing to do but heres a couple shots. I'm loving this new lens.

Kimmy was giving me great photo opportunities as she is super smooth



If your gonna crash, i always appreciate when you do it by me. I was shooting 6B and Jay went down in 6, I looked over my shoulder and saw his bobble and got the camera over that way just in time. Glad you were OK Jay! It looked painful.





HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I was behind Jay when this happened.

It was the first lap out for the session and I am thinking to myself, "wow, he is really moving", then......

I think it was just cold tires. VERY glad that he was o.k.

Good times indeed. Saturday was very crowded in B but afternoon sessions improved significantly. Sunday was when you had plenty of opportunities to go your pace and have plenty of track to do it.

Big thanks to gkotlin for riding with me on Sunday and ronhix for great advice Saturday

Bluebusa07 congrats on your bump to I

Wow! What a fantastic day on Saturday... Now I know what you guys are talking about when you say that you are track addicts... I'm already bugging Troy about planning the next trackday!

The first session was a bit rough for me - I felt like I didn't know what the hell I was doing and like I've never ridden a bike before Thankfully, the following session were a lot better and I feel like I learned and improved a ton!

If anyone knows how I can get a hold of Steve, my CR, please let me know, cause he was absolutely incredible. He coached me all day, was super patient and attentive. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Thank you Steve!

And Troy - thank you so much for being there for me, baby! I really hope that I made you proud!

The Chilli Cookoff was a good time too! It was great seeing some familiar faces: Kim, Nolan, Drama, Butch, Jay, Greg, Tony, Tom, and a whole bunch of others I'm forgetting... it was great hanging out with all of you!

Tony, thanx for the awesome shot and yup, if you're gonna crash, at least get it on video or get a picture of it, lol. Isn't it cool how the bike stood itself up and is going backwards? And good to know that my helmet never touched the ground, even under a few rolls. That concrete berm on the outside of 6 is no good for motorcycle crashes

Yup, totally stupid of me. I usually take about 1 lap to warm up and then get on the pace, but for some reason, I was giving it all I got on my out lap and the rear slid away from under me. My first thought was, "Damn it, did I just crash?" and then second thought was, "how much damage to the bike and can I get it fixed"
Not much damage to me, just sore left thumb and sore right knee. On Sunday, I didnt feel any pain when I was on the track but the pain came back as soon as I got off the bike - thanx Adrenaline

and I'm telling you, for all the fun people make of how common the Gixxer is, it paid off cause I found all the parts that I needed at the track: new master cylinder, reservoir, brake lines, and left rear set (thanx CR Tony!). I got her fixed up on Saturday and ran my best ever on Sunday. Was feeling great. Was glad that the crash didn't slow me down unlike my first crash 2 years ago. I was chasing a buddy in the afternoon and we were doing solid 1:24s. Good enough for me. I know where I can improve and that's why I'll keep coming back.

Thank to everyone that helped in getting my bike fixed, especially Turn One Racing and Marshall

I got some good video form the afternoon sessions and will post up this week.

Didn't have the best day unfortunately.....my whole morning was plagued by bike trouble...I know some of the guys in I were probably cursing me as I was going maybe 60 or 70 down the straights even though I was fully pegged on the throttle ...I apologize.
Big thanks to Joe from Turn-one for taking a look at my bike and diagnosing the problem and pointing me in the right direction to get it fixed...and also the random B rider named Dimitri for stopping by while I was cursing at my bike with the exact part I needed to make the bike work again.
Even though the bike was working well after lunch I just could not get in the proper groove the rest of the day as my head was just not in the right frame of mind. I still managed to run a few good laps with Kim and another few by myself in the last session.
The main reason for me doing the trackday anyways was for the festivities after and I enjoyed the chili thoroughly.
Hope I can get one more day in before it starts snowing.
