Beaver....

A self-imposed quota keeps me from getting to the track too much anymore, but I still get out there. It's like Pookie says in "New Jack"......"That sh*t be callin' me man!!!"

I hit Beaver Run near Pittsburgh this past weekend and depsite some rust, rode pretty well. My rickety old F3 was running good and I raised a few eyebrows with my ever-aging steed. I also took the liberty of flogging my buddies 1999 R1 (Penske, Ohlins, Marchesin) because he never does....(might seem like a bold move but the bike does live in MY garage:001_smile So I bought a photo CD just so I could send him some pics and bust his chops!



Beaver's a fun little track, laps are just over a minute, which is what I like. It's in decent shape and fairly technical.



My 95 F3 has less than 9K on it and prolly still makes 90ish HP. She works well enough but you really have to wring it's neck, just like any 600, if not moreso, to try to keep up with the newer ones that have 20+ horses on ya! You really can't see it but that's a shiny new Yoshi end-can because the old CF one was so busted up the noise was unbearable.



This carousel turn was a riot, a nice dbl-apexer with faster sections fore and aft. Good Stuff!

You need to work a little on total position. Your head needs to be further out over the lead shoulder. Other than that.

Sweet. I'd love to have a newer track bike, but it is kinda fun playing with that kind of handicap and still kicking a$$.

90HP from a 95 F3? I figured my '00 R6 was only good about 80-90?
