    Weather Network shows a high of 19c with 70% POP (5-10mm).

    If it stays that way, I'm likely out and will be staying home.

    The forecast did a nice about-face and it's looking good!
    I bought a lap timer over the winter so I want to get that attached. Recommendations for where to put the sensor?

    Also, for those going, looks like it's going to be a low turnout day and they *might be running 2 groups....

    How was it?

    Day overall was good.
    First 2 sessions had a wet track, third session was pretty much a solid pace.
    Temperature took a sudden drop of 3c around noon, and the wind picked up. Made it hard to keep tires hot during the session.

    Ended up with modified (blech) layout 'cause some jackasses left their RV's in the run-off area of the S bend.

    No crashes all day from what I saw. A few yellow flags and that's it.

    The GBM day turned out great.

    Last night had a hard rain, so there was some concern about a green track. Most of the track wasn't bad but the back straight was definitely a case of dodge the puddles and try to find a dry line for the first session out. Within an hour it was totally dry.

    The skies looked threatening all day but were little more than that. Not much sun, but it was warm enough in the morning to get some heat in the track. At noon a cold front rolled through and it dropped a few degrees, so just had to ride a little faster to keep the tires warm!

    Grip levels were great all day for the temperature which was surprising. Looks like the new tires are helping keep Tim out of the field. On the way out there we did see a lot of farmers planting still, so it took some convincing Tim to curb the jealousy and refrain from offering them some v-twin assistance. We did however hear the John Deere factory team scouts were out there with their lap times and saw Tim was only 2 seconds off pace. Unfortunately this wasn't good enough for them to present a contract. There's always next year.


    We met up with Bradsma and did had some fun out there with him and Katatonic. 2 groups and 0 crashes or sketchy passing out there. One of the cleanest track days I've seen. CBR was running well and most likely had its last laps under my wrist. I asked for a 21 gun salute, but the request was denied due to some concerns surrounding the recent seagull population decline. On the plus side, 0 "white spots" on the track which is nice to see!

    And Tim.....

    Great summery of the day. I was very happy to finally get out on this bike and see what it could do...or rather what I could do with it. Was very grateful for the low turnout until only having 15 minutes off between sessions started to hit me. O ended up sitting a couple of sessions out and called it an early day.
    Still had a blast though! Can't wait for the next one!

    That's ok. Looks like the GBM security cams caught a video of Dave unloading his bike this morning...
