NOT me. After paying $500 to race four 4 laps and freeze my ass off the entire weekend and beat the livign piss out of my rev limiter, I'm skipping this round. I doubt Dave (LBK) will be going either. I did, however, have my first and only pole position the year prior to that. That whole thing about it being LCR's mock race is just a minor detail

Of course, now that I'm not going, it will be 75 degrees and no clouds the entire weekend. That weekend is always a crap shoot. To get close to reasonable costs, you have to pre enter. If the weather is good, I might do a track day up there this year.

Good luck in the LCR school. Track me down so we can meet in person. #946 GSXR1000 (Yellow/Red), GSXR600 (Yellow) and F4i (Silver/Black)

Have fun out there.

HWSS

HWSBK
UNSBK
UNLGP
GTO
F40
Gonna be a ton of fun!
You running two bikes? Neat!
You can't run all those classes with one bike, but HW classes are good for the newer 600s (3/4 of the field is them anyways).

And yes, you will probably be sore, but since it's a 3 hour drive from home, might as well make it worth it.

Supertwins is a fun race since every time you get passed it sounds cool.

You don't stand a snowball chance in hell of being competitive with an SV though at that track, and it's usually ran with the Unlimited class, which can get REAL hairy at Blackhawk. I might not run that class next year, even I finished top 5 overall, and I missed about 4 races.

If you are chasing total championship points, it's not worth it. It doesn't pay 'real' points, just points for ST class.

Check the schedule... I don't believe they are combining ST and ULSB any more.

Running a GSXR600 and a GSXR1000. But you can run a 600 in all the classes. You'd just get crushed at RoadAmerica. But I suppose a 600 could do fairly well in all classes at BHF.

As I learn about this, it seems the logical thing is to move up, move down or both. Thinking a 750 for the HW classes instead of my 6, and thinking about the other end, perhaps going to an SV650.

We'll see if I survive the weekend and then figure it out from there. But one thing is for sure, it should be better than being in the office.

Looks like rain except for Sunday.

First race of the year in the rain (although not freezing!)?

See you down the road.
