Post thunderin Thursday

Well it was a hot day, many people got injured unfortunately, when I left it was up to 10...

Food was fantastic, thanks Mandy, you're good in my book no matter what Dave says

I had a good time talking to everyone, Demo, pocketrocket, mouse was nice to get to know you guys and just talk!

Demo hope you heal up and jump right back on.

Jason, I like your new bike.

Dave, you actually rode! Haha

Terra congrats on being a CR!

On the way home I had to stop a few times, I could not bare the heat.

Thanks guys was a good time

From clsb, demo did, bruised up shoulder, and another got his ego beat up... I don't want to mention the name if the person doesn't want to step up. I gave demo some pain pills so he was 'ok' for most part...

The 10 people, 9 walked away, last ducati 996 guy was taken on a stretcher, he was sitting up though.

Hope everyone is okay. The heat can really do a number on clouding judgment and even mess with depth perception and reaction time.

Heat index was over 100 today. That combined with a very open track in which riders were able to put in tons of clean laps contributed. Two crashes were I group less than one lap cold tire crashes. I hate seeing these as they are 100% totally preventable.

I hope all who had a spill get back in the seat quickly.

Nick and I have discussed our policy for these events and we are pledging to keep rider limits at 20 Novice 25 Intermediate and 25 Advanced and 3-Groups. This allows plenty of room for bumps up and down.

Thanks to everyne who came out.

Stay tuned for an important announcement about future events

I sat out a few sessions because I was so hot. I learned a ton, and even dragged knee for the first time. The first time I did it (T9) I bought I did but I wasn't sure. The next lap I nailed T6, and dragged knee perfect. I was so excited that I nailed the entry on that turn, I forgot to finish it, and rode the rumble strip. I got a few questions answered, and that only made me think of more. The SV faired well, up until a strap slipped when I was trailering home, and cracked the tail. Its cosmetic so I'm not worried. I have a great time.

Mandy, I love you. The food was awesome. Thank you for all of your hard work.

Jason, that gixxer 600 railed, I'm glad you like it.

Matt (STT coach) Thanks a ton for the help.

Ya it was hot down in Alabama too. We were at Tally and it was roasting. Barber is also a track that sucks in new riders, it's tough to learn in three days let alone on the first day and it's not hard to get in over yur head.. Add that with 100+ heat index and folks tip over.

I had fun in two sessions I did today! Heat was killing. I repeated a stupid mistake I did few trackdays ago and target fixated on rumble strip on T6, run over it and it turned out to be slippery - lost my front on it and went lowside.

No injuries, not even a bruise, bike needs couple sticking bits replaced but nothing major, I thought of going back into rotation, but it was too damn hot. Dnepr rode himself to exhaustion by first afternoon session and we left early.

I will bump myself back down to N for next trackday or two to work on my turn in and looking through the turn. Making same mistake twice in 7 trackdays, shows that I have the particular problem to work on, that only appeared when I was bumped to I at the beginning of the year and my pace increased.

I like the track though - it was my first time on ACC, very nice layout - easy to learn and entertaining with some nice transitions. By 2nd session I was comfortable on it and was doing good pace and left lots of my kneepucks on ACC, but then I got too comfortable I guess...

I want you to work with a coach next time out in I group. Let's get this little hick-up issue resolved so it doesnt occur again. Let me know the next date you sign up in advance and make sure you meet with me before riders meeting. I want you to go one on one with a coach for a couple sessions.

This was one of the hottest track days I've done in a while. The heat just destroys your mental and physical abilities.


THANK YOU everyone for coming out. The next one will be even better and YOUR voice from the riders meeting was clearly heard and has taken effect already, just read Monte's post on our quality numbers we are setting.

Thank you again. I look forward to seeing you at the next event

It was a blast, I hope everyone that went down in "I" is okay ! it did suck having to go out for like 2 laps and than pit... Plenty of open track and safe passing, I had fun ! A lil greasy today though, I was sliding a lil bit exiting the turns.. The last two sessions were brutal for me so I backed off the pace a good bit but still managed to improve my lines.

OK... now that my belly is full of delicious goodness.....ahhhhhhhhh yesss.

So, on Wednesday I left my bike at the track after the killer party at ACC because I knew I would ride it in the AM. I set it up for track while we were hanging out with the crowd at ACC the night before.... wrapped it up safe and sweet in Mouse's trailer.

Thursday, arrive at track. .... no trailer keys. DOH!!!!!!!!!!!
Mouse had to drive home and back in morning rush hour to get the keys. Smooth move, Ace! He made it back in time JUST before I had to go out for my first session. WHEW... close one.

The morning continued with surprises as Nick called me to the Staff meeting. He threw my name on the list for Novice coaching without barely looking up from his line up sheet he was writing on... "So, um, Terra, ... you're gonna coach Novice, and um.... next we will have..." Travis just looked at me and started laughing. I was happy to help the STT team, and I had a great time riding with my first formal three students on the track. All whom have never been on track before, including Bio Nuke. I had a blast riding with him, he did very well, took to all of the drills immediately, and increased his speed. We had a lot of sessions with open track for Novice today due to the SUPER AWESOME attendance limit, but getting towards the last session of the day he was heated and felt it... so he followed me around and actually ran his fastest session without realizing it. Good job, dude. You rocked it! I had a first time female track rider also and she gave me a hug and thanked me at the end of the day... that made me ---> . She will be back again to ride track and her boyfriend is going to be signing up with her as well.

The HEAT WAS KAARAZZZZAHY!!! Man... by the third session I had to start soaking my head with water and actually went in the showers with my leathers partially pulled down and ran ice cold water over the top half of my body for 10 minutes to get my body temp down. Im glad I did, because after that I felt awesome. I don't think I would have pleasantly made it following that. We had minimal breeze and temps at 100, no idea how hot that track was, but I tell you what, the blacktop wasn't anything to be reckoned with. I can't imagine how hot those guys were that were running Advanced. Its a mega workout on a regular day, let alone today. Most people didn't make it to the last two sessions of the day due to heat exhaustion. I was happy to see people who were level-headed about their safety.

Mandy and her munchkin came out and served up our lunch like a pro as usual... OMG the smoker has done this woman gooooood. Delicious! YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY...Unfortunately I am sad to report that my surprise lemon bars that she stored away for me lost their life in the cooler as everything melted before I discovered them in there. RIP Lemon Bars. You were so tasty and delicous... I will never forget you.

Random side note: Hey K3, nice skibbies, bud!

Random note 2: Tea, I like how you "verify" that people are in the right seat position on the hang off drill.

Following track today a group of us headed up to Jameson's for food (I never knew they had food there! ) It was tasty. It was fun chatting with Dave about the old school races etc, and we met a new girl rider also that is friends with Pilot Jason. She will probably be joining up here soon to get to know some of the girls.

I really enjoyed spending time with everyone today. All in all a great day.

I'm pretty sure there were only 6 crashes total. Novice had one the last session. But "I" was 4 for 4 in the morning. I definitely think it was people just getting on the gas too quick on cold tires. From what I remember 2 or 3 of those happened within the first 4 laps. Nicks lunch time talk to "I" was needed and everyone responded well. After lunch "I" was a blast.

Yeah it was hot, but overall the day was a blast! Got to meet more people and get some good riding in. STT did a great job a setting this weekday track day event up. The lower numbers did make for some nice open track. Thanks Mouse for the tips. After working with you Travis and some others I dropped 3 more seconds Germany at least you were not the slowest in "A" the last session :P

I tried my new GoPro and quickly reviewed the vid. I'll try and edit some of it where there are a bunch of us. I think I have almost everyone at some point who was pit in our little area.


Thanks again to Mandy and company for the lunch setup!!! Dave..mmmmm smoked turkey!

This was my first time at ACC north and I must say I felt like a track newb, this track is different in that I had to wrap my head around "late Apexing".. my favorite tracks are BHF and Road America, I feel most comfortable there and can carry a good pace but here for some reason I felt out of place and my lines showed it.. I improved throughout the day and was going at a decent clip once I learned the track but still felt like I was off pace a bit...

It took me a few sessions before I was feeling comfortable on the new bike and Im sure I looked like I had no idea what i was doing the first 2 sessions, my lines were complete garbage, I had no idea what the bike was going to do or how it turned in for corners and it definately made me nervous and distracted. once i got things sorted out I started to like the bike more and more, though i still miss having power anywhere in the rpm range like i did with the 1k, Im learning to shift the gears more as well so thats a plus.
I had a few good clean sessions until the second to last when i utterly botched a pass and nearly caused shelly and myself to occupy the same space at the same time in t1.
sorry about that and thanks for not hitting me.

the last 2 sessions were clean and smooth for me and ended the day without mishap.
cant wait for the next thursday ACC day
