Obviously however you feel most comfortable on the bike is the best way to ride, but you take away a lot of extra "turning power" when your BP sucks. Plus, I don't know Tim, so I will just give YOU shit about BP

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I miss VIR

I haven't been there in a year and a half, and I can close my eyes and run laps around the north course, though. 38's to 40's though

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

hmm... I was just looking at the VIR times form the last CCS weekend there, and 40's is a very competitive amateur time.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I don't know if I'd say 40's were VERY competitive. Patsy was running 32-35's, Metric 35-38's, 40's were about 5th-6th and back.

AM middleweight Supersport - 4th place's laptimes

1 1 01:42.801
2 2 01:41.517
3 3 01:39.447
4 4 01:40.302
5 5 01:39.904
6 6 01:39.074
7 7 01:39.923

Never counting Patsy and Mike, they're in their own league, that would put me competitive for second "normal" place.

If I could go down to VIR after 2 years of absence, and only get 2 practice rounds and pull off 4th or 5th, I'd be pretty happy.

Next year, I am expecting Dunlop to pay for my tires on (NJMP) contingency

So, maybe I can get to VIR...

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

If you picked up an SV60 and raced LWT SS and SBK you could definitely rack up a few wins I'm thinking.


But this year you'd better register nice and early for each round.

I love how you make excuses using more talented riders as why you are allowed to be too damn lazy to try to improve your technique

Big un' is st00pid fast, but a significant amount of it is that he rides st00pid powerful 1000s too.

As I always say. Shit BP can be used. But you will always make concessions to do so that someone using GOOD bp is not making. you will never see a rider riding like that anymore at the top of the world stage.

. Not in WERA either. IIRC top 5 are sup 40s easy. Winners in novice are :34-35.

I think Ill be back there this year, but not with my sprint bike. Will be giving an SV650 shit for about two hours at a time . My goal will be to turn most of my laps on the SV under a :40

I think you're misinterpreting what I was saying, I just meant it jokingly.

Tim is awesome, he's usually pit a couple garages down from us the last couple of CCS events at NJMP
