Well there is a SLIGHT chance I may be at the first AFM round of the year - it'll be tight, and I'll probably be slow as fuck since my leg will still be "fresh" but there's a chance still at this point. I'll know more in 3 weeks, but my ortho seemed pretty confident there's a good chance I could be sent home walking (or attempting to LOL) after my next follow up on the 1st...

Names Alex, race a 2011 ZX10R

First race weekend was back in October at the last round of the 2016 FMRRA series at PBIR, won both superbike and superstock 1000 amateur races and repeated the double last weekend at the second round of the 2017 season. The bug bit me back when I attended a few track days in Loudon, NH back in 2011 when I was still riding street on my 05 636. Ever since that first lap I knew I wanted to race, but knew I couldn't afford to until I grew up and stopped being a broke ass college student lol. Fast forward to 2015, living in FL and no longer broke, dying to start riding track again I bought a used 2011 and started race prepping it. Finally got the bike finished early 2016 and did a few Jennings GP and PBIR trackdays, waited until October to finally dip my toes into the racing scene (I refuse to ride June-September down here lol).

My goals are to drop a second or two in lap times so I can mix it up with some of the front running experts in my classes for atleast a lap or two. Along with that I need to work on my consistency, very rarely am I able to make a near perfect lap. Other things I want to accomplish are learning the art of setting up a bike, I've yet to touch a clicker or preload adjustment since I received the bike from my suspension tuner. He only attends CCS races so I don't get any trackside support at the FMRRA rounds.

Hey, Some/Most might know me since Ive been a member since 2004.

Name is Maurice.
Started riding in Fall of 2000. did my first Track day March 2005, by 2006 I was in Intermediate or Advance in the 3 to 4 Track day orgs. My bike mentor started TDs in 2002, and racing in 2003 so he finally got about 3 of us to do our first race March 2006. VIR during the Meat Grinder days (600 super stock) grids were 45-65 4 plus wave on a regular lol. In 2007 my mentor/best friend got the wild idea about us doing a 6 hour endurance race with WERA. I was scared shitless, but in the end it was fun and I ended up switching to GP shift and have not look back. The last WERA endurance Race I did in my region was 2012 and we pulled off a few 3rd place in that time. Met some Pro AMA racers on the track practicing. At one point I was averaging 35 track days a year and 10 race weekends.
12 years, numerous crashes and 15 operations I'm still in the track days and racing game.

I've always been a Kawasaki Guy and on average buy 2 of the latest models.

My first track bike was the 2004 ZX10R, I ran it in 2005, but I did not like it much. Wheelie monster. I then picked up a 2005 636 later that fall. When I started Racing in 2006 I raced my 2005 636, then in early fall I got the 2006 ZX10R and did about 5 races on it.
Had bad crash in 2006 and in 2007 I was racing both bikes in 600 class and 1000 class races.
By 2008 - 2014 I only raced and tracked my ZX10s. I picked up the R6 in 2015 and only did track days with it so far. I am slow rolling prepping it for race life.

The bike list.

starting in 2000.

1995 EX500
1991 ZX6 D1
2001 ZX6R

Track Years.
2004 ZX10R street
2004 ZX10R Race

2005 ZX636 Race Bike

2006 ZX10R street
2006 ZX10R Race

2008 ZX10R street
2008 ZX10R Race

2011 ZX10R Street
2011 ZX10R Race

2016 ZX10R Street

Other bikes since then...

2005 R1 street
2008 CBR 1000RR street

2011 R6 Race Bike and Street Bike.

(About 5 Dirt bikes)

Currently I have:
2016 ZX10R for the street
2011 ZX10R for Racing and Track days
2011 R6 for Racing, track days and Street (have race endurance bodywork with head lights)
2009 WR250F

I am looking at some 2016 ZX10R i may get to make a Race Bike, but my 2011 is dialed in so perfect, but the way my 2016 feel.....sigh...its a tad bit smoother.
I might just treat the 2011 to a Refit/Refresh and get some 2016 bodywork and update my paint sceme.

Ive been painting my bikes and others since the beginging, but its harder to do now with my neighbors bitching. So ill prob send out.
I want to get a set for $350.

Bad ass story Von/Maurice, lots of nice bikes you have there as well.

That sure look like a lot of fun- well, aside form the crashing/healing part.

Thanks for sharing bud!

Hey Von, good to hear from you.

I got my old profile back, after the nuclear attack.

Not racing, or riding anymore, no budget.

Good luck this new season if you're planning to race.

(where are you now?)


Thanks gents.

The last 3 years I've been hosting/advertising trackdays to get some of my boys n girls on the track. One event I had about 20+ street guys n gals there. Out of that now about 8 are regular track riders. I still ride street and track.
My GF ride also, but I got the R6 for her to use at the track, and a legit reason for me to get back in the Meat Grinder (600 super stock) races. lol (after I drop some weight.)

Race Wise I think I might only do the 4 and 6 hour endurance race series WERA have and the sprint races the next day. I have too much going on that is killing my pocket$$$$ to try and do a full or half race season. Plus im walking on fractured foot from dirt bike accident and my injuries are killing me lol.

So anyone from here who will be at the first AFM round this weekend? I'll be there, but as a spectator only since I just got released for weight bearing on my leg as of yesterday, and after nearly 4 months of non-use, I have ZERO strength in that leg. Silver lining is I'll have a month of rehab plus several trackdays to get some seat time on the new beast before I try to race it at Round 2. Still bummed I can't at least do AFemme, but at least I'll only miss the one round.
