Videos from Blackhawk Farms on July 6/7

I uploaded all my videos from the July 6th/7th weekend at Blackhawk Farms with Midwest Track Day.
www.midwesttrackday.com

It was a great weekend to be at the track. : I got to see people improve their riding, and that's what

makes this all worthwhile. Thanks to everyone that came out, and hopefully we'll see you down at Putnam in

October.

The weather was beautiful, although Sunday was hot and humid. I had to skip the last two coaching sessions due

to myself overheating. That's a weird feeling when you're getting light-headed, and all you can think about is

getting the leathers off and getting air. At least I was able to call the day before I made any bad choices on

the track and endangered anyone.


Disclaimer: No editing, or cutting, so there may be some dead time riding back to the pits.

Glad I could help. You had a good pace going, and were riding smooth. Keep up the good work.

Yep, way too fast I only did a few A sessions, and it's easy to be on opposite side of the track.

Thanks Come down to Putnam with us in October.

I still need to work on getting on the throttle sooner coming out of the turns. I know there's more traction I could use, but I'm leary of spinning up the rear tire. Baby steps!

Great footage, Jim! I was on the Red SV with the green junk on my brake lines [Lowsided in Turn 7 on Sunday afternoon]!

And Jeff, this must be you!

Yes sir. That's a good example of proper body position followed by fat guy body position.

You're welcome. Videos don't lie, and they're a great tool for self evaluation. That's why I post all of them good/bad.

You've got good body position. Seeing the video Mike took of your lowside made me cringe. I'm glad he was able to avoid you on the track.
