Welcome NESBA's newest member..ME!

Hey guys..

Made the big $75 plunge and joined NESBA. I'll be signing up for the September track days soon enough.

Looks like you all have another guy to lap. Try and keep the passing to the straights. Those last second passes at turn 1 piss me off

Bike number's 241 (street address). Wanted 84 (my army division) but that was taken.

WOOT!!!! Congrats Grover!!!!

Now you need to save the $$ for both Saturday and Sunday @ BHF to make use of the full membership this season! That way next year is just that much cheaper!

Now how far off is it?
Ciao,
Lupi

Ernie..

When you enroll you can choose your bike number. Assuming it's not taken you get it. 84 was taken Luckily nobody else lives at a 241

Lupi, it's 65 days to the next BHF. The membership is good for a year so even if I don't do any October days (I may, depends..) I still can hit the spring ones at the discounted price. The Putnam days aren't on a drill weekend, but there's a good chance those weekends will change since I'm looking at going to a different reserve unit.

I'm not addicted...yet. Tough to get addicted when you have super bad lap times like me. Slowing down in the straights to allow everybody to pass doesn't help those either!

Then again, the straight parts are boring

Woohoo. I think I'll be signing up and trying to get those Sept. days paid for when I get my next paycheck. Uhm, hopefully, I mean, 'cause I'd need leathers too. Blah. Anyway, congratulations Groooova.

Got the full leathers. Need to put the 'field tested, Jeff-approved' Champ91 brand frame sliders on her. I'm keeping the screwed up plastic for the track (once I get the new ones).

Oddy, I don't have problems once the bike is moving good. Well, 'good' is relative. Street 'good' is pokey on the track.

Hmm, Pokey. Like Gumby's friend. Bike and that horse are the same color? Name change for her?

Robogrover? Umm, NESBA don't allow 'sparky' knee pucks. Pretty sure a suit of armor is out of the question

oops, I did it again..

SuperRoboGrover....

You just take your time and be careful out there - remember NESBA days are NOT "racing"!!! - the only "competition" is with yourself.
You'll be amazed at how much you will learn and how fast you will become!


BTW... do you have a good back protector?

Congrats Supa-Roba-Grova

Just another blur on the front straight.

No seriously, you'll be amazed how much you'll learn and how much more comfortable you'll become on your bike. I know I have.

Yeah, Ceptor was all ready with cash (or card) in hand and they said no to his Phoenix jacket.

Max, if you are going with leathers, check out kneedraggers or newenough. Oh, and go with perforated if you can help it!
