Headed to Jennings Monday May 11th

Weather permitting, I will be there trying out my 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille. Just seeing if any other GDCers will be there.

Yeah it's fun. The only other track I've ridden on a sportbike is the old moroso track, and Jennings is WAY better. I can't wait. Excited to see how the v twin is on the track.

How much are track days up there in Jennings these days?

Re: Headed to Jennings Monday May 11th

Yeah. Ran some 29's today. Starting in the 32's in the first session., and I ran off after turn 6 on my second lap!!

I did 6 sessions and was consistently hitting 1:30-1:29.5 by the end. I'm pretty sore sitting here right now. Haven't used those muscles in a while, and it was fucking hot today, good lord.

I was running 27's on my stock 600 3-4 years ago. Someone timing me told me I was running 25's back then, but when I time my old gopro laps, a high 26 is my best ever.

You'll get it back, Jennings is quick to pick up speed.

Re: Headed to Jennings Monday May 11th

Yeah I could feel the cob webs fading. This Aprilia is a different animal than anything I've ridden. The motor is so fun, pulls like a tractor. The bike is just lazy switching from side to side, and Jennings has a lot of that. Interestingly though, it turns in like a razor blade, it just seems like when I leaning one way and go to flip it the other way, it's slow to do so. It's been so long I don't know if it's me or the bike, but bike 600 felt more flickable. Still, this thing is crazy fun. Can't wait to do some more track days.

Re: Headed to Jennings Monday May 11th

This is the best session to watch (passes and such). Fastest lap was a 1:30.11

I should have named the video "missed apexes"..

Right on.

Nothing like a video to show you just how slow you're going...
