Well it must have been damn hot out because I skipped the first 2 sessions and from what I can tell from my track pics you can see a faint rubber line behind me as I was turning... lol
Was well hot, most of my days this season have been over 30*c
What type of pan do you have? Is that armour bodies or hotbodies? Looks nice.
Oh just saw it on your mods list.
Yea, hotbodies, it just probably looks different as I had to cut it to fit the exhaust.
True that - I just did the Cali Superbike School at VIR and, even though it really wasn't too hot that day, I don't remember ever drinking that much water and NOT having to go to the bathroom...five, 20 minute sessions were more than adequate my first time out
Five is plenty first day out, the key is to just keep going.

3. +1 on the heat. From about june-late august it is consistently in excess of 100 degrees here. It didn't drop below 109 at all last week and when you ride in that shit all day, it is killer.
Cheers MOM thanks for checking in, It's actually gotten cool the past few weeks up here the joys of living in Canada and short summers, But I had no complaints up here since May so hey.
They saved my bike from engine casing damage when I lowsided at ~100mph. I should just buy some engine case protectors.
Another member has referred to the after 3pm time as the "witching hour" as in the time people lose their mental concentration and F ish up. Riding on the track/racing is very strenuous fo sho
I hear speak of this often but I'm usually a slow starter so I don't generally feel comfortable and get up to pace till late in the day so I tend to go till the end. I plan to do alot more gym training and running over the winter to build up my endurance again. I found when I was fitter I was able to do a whole day no prob as well as be alot more agile.
I've used sliders before and I know there is value in them but at this point I think tank sliders and engine case protectors are the best investment for especially with this rashed up body work LOL
