Have fun man! I am planning on trying my hand at Jennings on the last Sunday of June. Bike back up to stock ride height, stainless lines and galfer pads going on and new tires to be ordered soon. Should be awesome!

Man, I was suppose to be there tomorrow, but my job put a canc on that plan. My buddy will be there on a Red 08 1000rr, name Ben. We were suppose to go together, but I bet he feels like I bailed on him.

What group are you going to be running in?

I ran Novice, this was my first time back sense i had a nasty highside on Turn 8, and iI didnt feel the need to push it, just get my self re acquainted with the track. Was your friend also in novice, with an 08 and an 04? If so, he was in the next pit over from me and I rode with him all day, nice guy.

Apparently they also run the track clockwise from time to time so you can work on your right handers as well. I know that I do better on left than rights and the clockwise events would be great practice as well

Yep, that was him, his name is Ben, and he just moved to San Diego, the next day Tuesday. It was his last time running Jennings, so he really wanted to go. Did you get to run your lap timer, to see what you were running? He sent me a txt with a pic of his with 134 on it. We are both new to the whole track day riding, and he got me by a second now. If I would of been there, it would of been a different though.

Yeah they do, and trust me, after being use to going one way and going the other, it really jacked me up. I don't see how people can just go to a different track and run it like they do, I truely have to get comfortable on it, before I can really get on it.

My best ever around Jennings is a 1:35.2, and interestingly, that running it reverse. normal my best is a 1:37.something. This time when i went i was running consistent high 1:40s. only using the first two gears, engine braking only, etc, etc, I just wanted to get back into track riding and get my confidence back, which i did!

Anyone going Monday the 25th? I know there's a few peeps from tampa planing on going. I may just have to join if some of this weather moves out of here.
