This was my first time riding with STT... and MOST of the things I have heard from others about them proved true, that's all I'll say about that part of it..... I had I great time, and I'd ride with them again..in a similar circumstance.
I missed having all my NESBA buds around! JonGu was good company though, a super nice guy, thanks for everything! I enjoyed the chance to meet some new people too, from the WERA board and others.
The weather was good enough... around freezing in the mornings, but sunny and COMFORTABLE later in the day. It was kinda nice not to sweat your ass off
I had few problems adapting to the different bike....GP shift was a non-issue, learned it by heart in one session, no mistakes. Handling the extra HP is a different animal. I realized quickly that my riding style had to change. On the first session Saturday, it was cold ofcourse, and I was very tentative with the throttle on corner exits, as I could feel alot of wheel spin. I never imagined that wheel spin would be a problem on the straight though
. I shifted to 5th somewhere close to the flag stand, spun the tire, hit a bump, got a LITTLE sideways, and chased a wobble all the way to turn one. MUCHO EXCITING!
That's the part where I had to change my style a little. Long story short.. I beat my best time at Putnam by a good margin, had fun, brought everything back in original condition, and had fun
Can't wait for Grattan
