Hey Deefib, I've not met you, but Brentano's a buddy of mine, so if you can, keep an eye on him, I'd hate to see him lose his pasta maker!

Have fun tomorrow and keep the Rubber side down,

Tire service Sat. I talked with Jason Thursday.
I think he said $15 a wheel for your own tires.
Thats all I know now.

Never been to any track. Lets say I want to try it for a day, what kind of fees am I looking at. Autobahn membership is way out of my pocket...

Hope you all had fun

I pitted with Butchf and sons and I was riding 921 and cornerworking at turn 5 & 7. On satuday turn 7 was the winner (riders 0 turn 7 1,000,000). Sunday was a little better for the riders in all corners except for turn 5
By the way butchf I would pit with you at any track.

Been dere done dat dis dere and de udder ting. OH and whatnot

Fun having you around and letting me think I was getting faster.
Leon was so nice letting the boys share the track time. Jigs, man letting Chris try out that Resol 1000RR was cool too.
Really had a good time. And hey ClevisR6 good seeing you out there as well.
Too bad that was the last one of the year.

butchf, thanks for help with tapping that stripped thread!

intermediate was nice but I still got stuck behind a couple liter bikes...
my friend shot some video of me getting off a decent pass on one of them in turn 6. as soon as he puts it together, I email it to jgf to get hosted.
