    It sounds like there will be little to no trackdays there for 2017, as they will be catering mainly to members... many of whom have put money in and been waiting many years.

    Things are looking good for 2018 though.

    For this year, we have Thompson track in both directions, NYST in both directions, and Palmer in at least one direction (they are working on getting both directions too!). So in effect, we have 5 different tracks this year!

    The April 23rd date is now SOLD OUT!

    Don't worry if you have paid and your name is not on the list yet... I am still processing all the recent orders. If it's not there by Friday night, please email me.

    And if you missed out on this one... might be a good time to sign up for the next event... May 28 and 29 in Palmer, MA.

    Re: 1st Trackday of 2017

    In case you missed the bulk email, this Sunday's trackday is a GO! The weather was iffy all week, but it seems to have turned around and it's looking mostly dry and above 55 degrees... so we are running the day.

    Having said that, if you already have a spot and wish to back out, tell me today and I can get you a full credit as I have several people on the waiting list that are trying to get in.

    Shoot me an email please (Not a PM)

    Remember also, that we are on track from Noon to 7pm with no breaks. Arrive at the track after 7am on Sunday. Tech will open about 8:30. Riders meeting at 11:15 sharp and you must already be done with Tech Inspection.

    If you are getting tires put on that morning, please go through Tech Inspection first! (your tech inspector can confirm that you have tires on order with Mike at Pirelli).

    See you Sunday!

    The season could not have started off any better. I ran a backwards facing camera in a couple yellow and blue sessions. I'll post it up later today, see if you can spot yo-self.

    Here's a yellow group session. Looks like I grabbed one more yellow and a blue as well.

    Here they are. If you see yourself and want anything in full quality, just let me know. I'll see what I can do with minimal video skills.

    And here are a couple laps (saved you a whole session of looking at my back) in last black group session. Bike was working so well, had to take her for a proper rip.



    Thus ends my spamming!

    Thanks for the vids Jay! I think the last three you set are set to private. First one works though.

    Sunday was killer! Took 2-3 sessions to finally shake off the cobwebs and get on the throttle. Couldn't be happier with the way the weather turned out and it was great running into a bunch of familiar faces.

    Thanks! Yeah I can see them all now. Thanks for the tow in yellow. It was my first session out of the day and it had been a few years.

    Re: 1st Trackday of 2017

    Great weather and a good turn out for so early in the season. At the beginning of the day at the riders meeting Tony mentioned everyone to check their bikes. Something about finding nuts and bolts out on the track and generally there are a few people that find out they forgot something and break down....

    I showed up with two bikes. My R3 racer and my R1. Both gave me fits. The R3 was its first ride since a crash at the last race weekend in Oct. I crashed in 2 in the rain. I bent the shift rod and replaced it with a longer one after a call to Spears racing and moving the pivot of my rearsets to the back hole. Well the linkage didn't work out on the track. It was popping out of gear and down shifting and would bind so hard on up shifts that it felt like a bent shift fork. I hear the R3 is subject to bent shift shaft as the knuckle can hit the pavement. I put it away and went to the R1.

    A new Y pipe cat removal was performed over the winter and this was its first real ride. I rode it on the street after sending the ECU to SBU to be reflashed. It was close to unrideable. It seemed to improve with miles and I thought it could just be the cold weather. I went out on the track with it and had a super hard time holding neutral/maintenance throttle in the corners. It was a light switch of off and on power. There was no way to maintain the throttle in a corner. I actually had to pull the clutch add throttle and slip the clutch to get through the lower speed corners. It was downright dangerous. I finally put the bike in rain mode and while it was better it was still sketchy. I apologize to the black group for my terrible NON-Smooth riding. I should have just packed it in.

    The good news is my buddy noticed a guy on an R1 that was ripping the black group. Said to talk to him as his bike was sorted. I did and got useful information and heard he had the same issues with the SBU flash. Graves flash tune kit is on the way. The R3 I ordered the Dynojet shift rod G and installed it yesterday. It seems the geometry of the linkage is happy now. Fingers crossed for this weekend.
