3 laps with Jason Pridmore

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD

Today was a perfect day at BHF with the Star/Pridmore school. Great class, great instructors, a relaxed atmosphere, perfect weather, and then I agreed to do a 2-up ride on the back of Jason Pridmore's GSXR-1000.....

Did I say HOLY MOTHER OF GOD yet?

Now I did a fair job on my 08 CBR1000RR today, but on the 2-up ride Pridmore had to be doing double my speed at every corner, no lie. It was freaking amazing. We did 3 laps, each faster than the first, and on the first lap I was convinced that we were going to either low side or high side at every corner. And then he went faster. INSANE SPEED! INSANE BRAKING! INSANE LEAN with 350+ lbs of rider and passenger on board! Waaay faster than I ever thought a motorcycle could go. I had no idea how lame of a rider I was!

Seriously, I have been in a stunt plane doing full loops and corkscrews over Lake Michigan, and this experience blew that away. I was speechless for the next hour.

If you've never done it, do so. You'll never forget it.

Oh, did I mention that the mind-bending ride I had with Jason was on a stock (except for exhaust and tank handles) GSXR-1000 with stock suspension and street tires (Dunlop Q2's)? Oh, and also Jason told me after our fastest 3rd lap that he was doing about 40% of his max?

Absolutely CRAZY.

I can't imagine, after how nuts and seemingly life-threatening that 2-up ride was, how even crazier the 2-up MotoGP bike used during MotoGP races with Randy Mamola must be!

Cool deal. Had the chance to ride on the back of his GSXR 1000 at Autobaun. Funny thing is all I was doing was visiting some friends that teach for him I wasn't even a paid customer. Basicaly Jason told me to hop in his semi trailer and grab a set of leathers (as me Beaz and Kevin drove there) and hop on the back of his bike. It was a pretty cool expeirence as I really never rode on the back of a bike so not being in control was a little iffy. LOL But yeah the lap time where comparable to mid pack expert lightweight times.

Steve rode behind him for a while and said it was more like 17s.

Having run a 1:20.XX myself before, i can tell you, it wasn't 19 with me on the back. Dear god!!!
I must say also, when he asked me before the ride if i was nervous or scared, I said no and i that I trusted him. I asked if i should get off the bike with him, and he said, yeah, that would be great if it works. (i knew that from riding two up with X at gingerman)
After the first lap he gave me a thumbs up, asking if it was okay. I nodded, and he sped up even more ;-)

In T6 i thought i was gonna fall of the back of his bike.

I tried to get in touch with Jason about the school, and its availability, but after he said he'd send me an e-mail, I never heard from him. I guess his schedule is too busy with all of the Military and Veterans he keeps posting about supporting on FB.

<----- Veteran Also, sooooo

I met one of his staff while I was out in California, and he said to send him a message directly to talk about being at BHF. I guess it didn't work like he thought it would.

I still remember my 2-up with Nick Ienatsch at YCRS at NJMP

Guys sometimes it takes a little follow up on your end...he's not waiting around thinking about sending you one email....the guy is busy running a business on top of other things he's doing.

Jason Pridmore owns Star Motorcycle school.

He is a former factory Yoshimura rider and rode for Jordan Suzuki as well.

All around great guy with a great school and a lot of knowledge....best bang for the buck his school.

I realize that. That's why I sent one message per week, over three weeks, and then he responded with "I'm sorry for the delay, I'll send you an email tonight" and I "assumed" that's what would happen.

That's what happens when you assume.

I'm not going to act like my daughter and send a message every hour until someone responds. It's a waste of BOTH of our time.

What info were you looking for? On his website for the school all the info was there about the school, availability, the National Guard day (which was yesterday, perfect weather for that also, and 2-up rides, too)....right there, just a click away. I didn't even talk to Jason before I signed up!

I mean for pete's sake the guy is still a rider for teams all over the world, he trains riders all over the world....I'd expect him to be a bit busy.

Although I do know what you mean - that damn Michael Jordan never responded to me when I asked him how his team was doing. What a pompous a-hole.

Ha, that's funny. Every track day I go to someone comes up and says "This Dave's old bike?"

It felt good at Autobahn, and I felt confident on it, but at BHF it felt way too soft for me, I wasn't very confident or comfortable on it. Didn't help when a guy teching it pushed up and down on it, looked at another tech, the other guy laughed, and the guy teching it said, "Wow, that's sproingy!" I told him unless he's going to give me a grand to make it less sproingy, it'll have to do.

Those numbers on it make it less sproingy I think, so I'll keep them on.

There's more to the story than what I posted publicly. Not anything bad, just the reasoning behind why I was trying to get in touch outside of the web site.

Im not going into it any more than I have.

Looks like Dave made more of an impression on the bike than I did!

And still too sproingy???? I swapped put those crappy stock .60s for .85s.

Hey everyone,

Wanted to take the time to thank you for all the great comments. I really did enjoy my first time at Blackhawk. All of us at STAR did and we are hoping to make BHF a annual stop on our calendar. The track layout was a blast, the staff at BHF were great and we couldn't beat the weather we had for 3 straight days. The level of riding there was very high and I enjoyed getting to give some of you a few laps on the back of our GSXR.

I have to say that I do try and please everyone the best I can. I was contacted by stkr on FB and did send a couple emails back and forth. In all honesty, I forgot to get back. No excuses. Hopefully, if and when we go back to BHF stkr can join us for our military day there or even go to Topeka this year. I know Topeka used to part of the race schedule for you all up there. Anyways, my apologies.

Again, thank you to all that joined us and hope to see you all again. Till then, ride safe.

The level of riding there was very high and I enjoyed getting to give some of you a few laps on the back of our GSXR.

I have to say that I do try and please everyone the best I can. I was contacted by stkr on FB and did send a couple emails back and forth. In all honesty, I forgot to get back. No excuses. Hopefully, if and when we go back to BHF stkr can join us for our military day there or even go to Topeka this year. I know Topeka used to part of the race schedule for you all up there. Anyways, my apologies.

Again, thank you to all that joined us and hope to see you all again. Till then, ride safe.
