5/6/07 Putnam Park Trackday!!!

Just thought I would post up as I had a great time a NESBA event at Putnam Park this last Sunday. A lot of friends and Smiley aka avdigigeek(member here) was also out in the "A" group taring it up on his ZX-10R.

After the get off's the w/e before racing at HPT I had to shake down the bike and make sure the bondo stayed on.
Got some decent morning sessions in and got my best 1:15.1 lap time at putnam. Bike was still not quite right as the I wasnt getting it to stick to its line on exit. Messed aroung with the gearing, wheelbase and geometry and got her working pretty well. For some reason I lost 6th gear and could not get into it no matter how hard I tried.

After lunch though with the changes the bike felt pretty good and ran a few high 14's with a 1:14.8 as my best ever lap time at Putnam on takeoffs from the w/e befores races. (actually the set I crashed on)

It was a great time with some good friends and NESBA rocks especially in the Midwest so check them out sometime if you plan on doing some trackdays. www.nesba.com www.putnampark.com

Pictures to follow....
