    According to the GBM schedule it is both afternoon and evening lapping, but maybe call GBM to confirm

    Smergy - Your track day calendar needs little tweaking

    I'm just bustin your balls! I checked the GBM website and it only mentioned the evening lapping. I'll double check with them while I'm there this weekend.

    I checked GBM schedule, it appears that is the only Thursday with a * because it is a full lapping day. If that is the case I'll come down for the entire day instead of just the evening

    So how was your weekend with Racer5? Not the greatest weather but Sunday was great for putting it all together. I built a deck

    I might do that too; not sure I can wait till July 7 or if it'll be smart to be out for the first time on my new bike on a pre-CSBK practice day.

    Injured finger building deck this past weekend so I will see how that is healing as the week progresses, if all is good I'll call and book Friday for the 22nd.

    Any thoughts on this?
    I think I'm gonna use it as a track tire; seems like it's the closest you can get to a slick without needing warmers and for my pace, it should be perfect!

    I'm running the Q3+ this year, if my tires are better than the Q3's then I will be happy and if the Q4's are even better than the Q3+ I think they'd be great.

    I have heard the Q's heat up quick but if you push real hard they get greasy. I'm ok with that as I can dial it down one notch and have fun should I even hit that point.

    My buddy was running RS-10's they take longer to warm up but work well when warm and he ended up with a nasty high side as a result of thinking they were ready to go. I wish to avoid that if I can.

    The q4 is made for track days short life great traction, 62 degree lean angles. :

    62? That's nothing. BigEvilDoer is getting 90 degrees of lean angle regularly.

    Yeah yeah yeah...
    New tires on front and rear. We shall see how it goes on Tuesday.
    Thinking I will start in Intermediate to do a proper scrub in/check bike performance after last track day crashes, and progress to red from there as comfort dictates.

    Wonder what layout they'll be running. Just hope it's not Modified.... too boring...
    But since it's pretty much all rights, my chances of binning are less (last 3 have all been lefts).

    Usually gbm runs whatever the following soar weekend is, but this time it's a practice weekend. I've asked Paul and Deb what the layout will be. I'll let u know if they get back to me

    I'm with BigEvilDoer, hope the layout isn't modified. I just finished 3 days at Racer5 riding it and it was getting a little monotonous....

    I'm crossing my fingers for reverse alien, that's the one I enjoyed the most. Maybe I'll even call in tomorrow and ask nicely
