Cracked a header today

Was at Barber for some running in circles.

First two sessions went great. Was really confident and had tons of fun. End of the second session, exiting the Museum Turn, bike gets crazy loud. I raise the hand and roll out. Park it. Back in the paddock:


Loaded back up:


Then i was in for a “cheat” treat. I call it cheat, since it’s so easy to ride. It’s lime cheating!!! Sprung for 50lb less than me, on toasted michelins and stock suspension




Oh and Kanpp’s bike with my titanium bolts on it (and @KMC) were also there. Good times

That happened to me too in May. easy to get off, but a witch to get back on. lol. Barber looks like a great track to be on. I've only been there for AMA/Motoamerica.
Thanks from Phl

I've always had the feeling Phl was not spending money where not really needed for function but hey! Those wooden ramps don't cost much cheaper than the 80,- bucks aluminum I am using :-)

I was pitted with Touringsport on the 2nd tier. ran pretty well in advanced. a little pissed, since i bought a slick to put on in the afternoon, well, that didn't happen...

left early, after leaving some more titanium bolts for Knapp's Ducati Detroit bike with Kevin.
Thanks from Mrdcook2

i call it "sensitive investing" - save here, splurge there...

well, i've had so many planks laying around from building my deck... so i found those aluminum ends at tractor supply on sale...

those ramps cost me $40 i think. and they are 10ft ... all the aluminum ones are too short or too expensive.

I was on the 2nd tier with the pandoras motorsport guys. I can only handle intermediate right now until I can get the body position thing down. but was a fun day non the less
