First Day Back May 7 Pocono East
Well after having to cancel my first time on Easter. I rescheduled for this last weekend. The day started with replacing a bent clip-on tube. No idea how it happened while it was on the trailer. It was an easy fix as I had a spare. It was cold as hell and my broke ass hasn't bought tire warmers. The first wasn't pretty much just getting the brain back into it. I was too tense and needed to loosen up.
I regroup for the second session and hook-up with a fairly quick guy on a R1 It seemed when I had a run on him he would just out motor me on the straight damn liter bikes. It felt good and was staring to drop my times. The R6 had some tweaking over the winter. I had Ivan tune the carbs what a difference and added HH pads and Radial mount Master. The brakes were incredible one finger stopping power. As the day progressed I feeling my confidence coming back. Then the dreaded long lunch followed by someone falling down ruined the rythm to the day.
The frustrating part was the Red group in TPM. Why I haven't gotten bumped up to Blue I don't know. One session I passed everyone and some guys twice. I wasn't even pushing it or doing anything crazy. Next time I'm asking to be moved up, as it will me progress to have some faster guys to learn from. This and some clear track so I can work on somethings. The other thing is I feel there a quite a few guys who need some instruction on proper line. They proceed to go balls to the wall down the straight then park it in the turn. Overall good day just need to find the mojo and some clear track.
