So I am confused. The title is asking about the 29 and 30th. That would be Monday & Tuesday. Yet we have a variety of posts in here about Fri, Sat, and Sunday.

Just curious, what is going on there Sat & Sun?

After the weekend is over make sure and post up how the new pavement at the track is. I guess 5, 6, 8, 12 and I'm not sure where else is repaved.

I'll be there the weekend after for the AMA races and then STT has the track Wednesday June 7th, so I'll be riding that.

New pavement is great. Let's see, there is a bump entering 6 on the outside right over the top of the hill. Running the "Bend" instead of the kink.

Other than that, all is normal and the track was marvelous when we were up there last month. You're gonna love the new pavement.

Yea, but I'm going to wish I have another 400 or 500 CCs riding a SV at RA

Oh, you hate your rev limiter Nick. You spend 30 seconds each lap hitting that thing. Hell, even I can do that!

Nick, sorry to say it, but RA is a track to to even wish for larger than a 600, let alone an SV. 750s and litre bikes rule there. I took a 600 and a 1000 there last time, and I rode each about the same number of sessions. The 600 holds its own everywhere except the front straight, the run down to T5, and in Kettle Bottoms.

The 1000 hits the early rev limiter at indicated 186 in three separate spots on the track per lap. Fast track....

I am going to put my biggest front sprocket and my smallest rear sprocket on and hope for the best.

I could use Rachels (Slowass's) R6, but I know I will destroy it, so I think thats out.

I run my SV at RA years ago, And had a blast being passed, but it was fun. The corners are the SV's strong point.
