I have a green ford pickup with an open trailer and will be riding a red 919. Will not be many of them there so I'll be easy to spot.

After watching the weather, I'm canceling my day and gonna reschedule to a later date. I don't want to spend a day in wet leathers. For those who go Monday good luck and I hope you stay dry.

The rain held off thankfully & it was a great day, albeit hot & humid. njmp rocks!
Met dan919 too but forgot to checkout his trackbike which I think used to be
some ama racer dude's backup bike, no?

Cool car!!!

It's a good thing I was there as within moments of my arrival I used my influence to get him bumped to Intermediate group.

I also made a minor tweak to his bike and he found a few whole seconds.

If I had not showed up he'd probably still be in the paddock, packing up his stuff.................

Why to go getting bumped up Trent.. How do you like the R6 on the track compared to the 9ner?

thanks dood.
the comparison....i can't explain what the differences feel like as i don't know all the terminology. somebody else can probably do it better. It's lighter & more aggressive, goes in easier. You really have to ring its neck to get it to go though but I heard all the 600's are like that.

jlux-
It is easy to ride which makes it confidence inspiring. I take comfort in knowing that with only 112hp (or whatever it is) the power
won't get me into trouble. Sometimes I get whizzed by on the straights by bigger bikes, which I'm sure will happen even more now, but I don't care. It's way too much fun to sweat the small stuff.
