    Little bikes will be safer at this track, but I'm not thiniking it's a "little bike track". The place is HUGE.

    Well, Loudon is "little bike" friendly. Unless you're bored of it.

    What does the paddock area look like for the first event (flat, paved)?

    Be sure you are on the ttd email list... One will go out Thursday after the staff testing day. Right now, expect dirt for the most part, but we should be able to keep the bikes on paved areas.

    Re: New Palmer track video

    I actually was wondering which bike would be better, the tard or the r6? It looked like a fairly fast track from the video.

    Re: New Palmer track video

    With the dust and dirt blowing around, the tard might be the ticket for the first event. I think like NYST it will be pretty good on any sized bike, but not really favor the small bikes.

    Re: New Palmer track video

    Hey Tony, still considering doing this but wanted to ask some Q's:

    1. No power, correct? I don't ride without warmers, so would need a gen or something.
    2. Do you yet know if you're going to create any of those "cone chicanes" or just ride the track as is?
    3. Does the track intend to grow grass or lay sod/rock? Just wondering if/when the dust/dirt blowing issue will be sorted out. I assume it will NOT be sorted by memorial day.
    4. You'll be running a black group, any idea on the rules and such for that for Palmer yet?

    Thx

    Re: New Palmer track video

    Most likely a chicane between one and two. Will know more Wednesday. Only three groups for the first event... 20 minute sessions. Rules tba, but mostly passing on the straight sections as there are plenty of them, and the corners can be tricky.

    i meant, its a busy track and by just watching the video it seems like it will minimize the HP gap a bit. NYST is little bike friendly, as is NHMS. Thompson definitely benefits HP bikes.

    i dont get bored of tracks. no NHMS TTDs scheduled though.

    Not to start a shit show, but with 20 minute sessions and a new track... taking a lap or two to warm the tires each session should be simple and very safe.

    Yeah, I get your standpoint. I have race tires and like them to be hot on pit out. I don't want to tear them up trying to get them to temp, or putt around waiting for them to be hot, or wonder if the carcass is actually fully heated up all the way through, or even to really have to think about it at all. If I was on a street bike and street tires it would be a different story.

    Re: New Palmer track video

    i havent run warmers in a couple years since my rear quit working. usually a lap at half speed and then another lap a little faster and they are good. this also depends on length of track and grippyness of track. this track is over 2 miles long with new pavement so id venture that i may only need to do a lap to get up to a temp where i can start adding speed.
    throwing the warmers on after a session (not plugged in) will help hold in heat as well between sessions

    Might as well buy two rears and a backup front for cheap from me, then: http://www.nestreetriders.com/forum/...e-warmers.html

    On the 5th session of the second day, still having to spend 2 laps each session doesn't get old?

    not a bad idea. i may just do that.
    i will add t5hough that with places like NYST, TSMP and PMP not having readily available power and me not having a generator, even if i had warmers that worked, id still most likely not be running them.
    when they worked i would plug them in in the morning and right before the session after lunch. the rest of the day i just wrapped them to hold in some heat.

    nope. picking my bike up and fixing it gets real old after the first time though

    Exactly! Your body and bike will benefit from a couple of easy laps. There's a reason races start with warmup laps.

    I did my first trackday in years without warmers last year.


    It sucked. I hated spending 15% of the day waiting for the tires to come up to temp.


    Not necessary to have them, but way nicer. For grip, confidence, and less worry.

    Re: New Palmer track video

    Understood... and if you can ride a whole session full speed then they make sense.

    I bet most riders cannot go full pace for an entire session.

    If you are going to do a couple of easy laps each session anyway... why not make them your first two?

    Again... if you have warmers, then great... use them. I am just trying to get new riders away from the, "I can't do trackdays until I get warmers" philosophy.
