Nesba Bhf 9/22/02

Just signed up for the intro session, trying to get a couple of buddies of mine to go as well. Anyone else singed up for this day or Saturday 9/21?

Looks like they offer the free into both Saturday 9/21 and Sunday 9/22. I picked Sunday just because I'm usually not in very good shape Saturday morning if you know what I mean!

hmmmmmmm...I'm feeling pretty comfortable with the bike lately. I'll have to find out more about this though like what I need to pass bike tech and gear needed. then I'll have to find a lift for me and the bike or rent a trailor. Do these things fill up fast or do I have a little time to ponder????

I'd say you probably have a little while to sign up still, but it just depends on how many Beginners and Intro people sign up. You're gonna wanna sign up ASAP just in case. As far as the gear and tech crap, if you're just doing Intro, then all you need are two pairs of jeans, a good jacket (I'm sure they prefer leather, but a good textile works, too, apparently), boots, gloves, and helmet for gear; and, for tech, you just needa tape up your headlights, brakelight, signals, mirrors, reflectors, etc. and you should probably unplug the lights too, although there were people out there when I did Intro who had theirs running. Whew, I think that's all.

Tom
here is some real tips for you:
1)remember its not a race your there to learn how to ride faster safer not race
2) follow an instructor your first session take note on there lines, watch them, see how they set set up for the turns, how they "LOOK" throught the turns, practice this if I can stress one thing looking through the turn would be it.
3) be smooth, pick a speed to enter a turn and slowly throttle through the turn, gradually picking up speed.
4) since this is your first time out there i'd suggest picking a gear for the first few laps and staying in it, (3rd is good for blackhawk)this will help you concentrate more on the turn then what gear you are in.
5) relax have a good time, its what your there for

hope this helps!

Well it looks like I will have to "dust" off the leathers and get back out there. Shoulder surgery is healing quite well-besides the funny looking bone that sticks up a couple inches. Oh well no more excuses I will see you guys out there for both days.

Mike- I'm looking forward to meeting you. My in-laws live in Oak Forest and I ride up there quite often, but I don't ride around there because there's no one to ride w/.


Brent- Glad to hear things are healing. Looking forward to seeing you back at it! Keep getting well!
