No problem, John. You returned the favor in the last session when you tapped your tail to show me some lines. Sorry I wasn't fast enough to keep up with you.

John-

The Michelin Power Race tires were awesome today. It gave me more confidence, and the turn-in was very nice. I went with the PR2 front and the new 190/55-17 medium profile in the rear. Also the tire wear looked GREAT after just one day-- Wear was even and not excessive at all considering that they were on a liter bike. Monte just got them in stock, and they were flying off of his rack today. Don't know if he has anymore or when he'll get more, but I'll be first in line to buy another set.

And as for you, Ernie... It was after the second time.

Dave,


Thanks for reminding me of my rapidly advancing age Saturday, dude...

What's a good time for an old guy on the South course? I was doing 139's on my 4th (and last) session. First day out this year. Man, I have some catching up to do....

Tom-- Thanks for that tip about hitting those apexes. I'm really concentrating on getting myself as close to the curbing on the inside of corners to increase the room on exit. Sometimes the simplest concepts are the most elusive.
