As the subject states, I did a very bad thing this weekend. I went to a track day on my bike. I had one heck of a good time. I went to Talladega Gran Prix Raceway and it was the first time in around 15 years that I've been on the track with a bike. Heck, I've only been back on the bike since last fall. Times were not spectacular but not bad, I started in novice and was bumped up to intermediate before the end of the day. My best at Tally back in the "old" days was high 1:05s on a FZR 400 {50 RWHP and a weight of 400lbs}. Best Sunday was a 1:10.14 on a bike that has 140 RWHP and a weight of 430lbs. Hmm,,,, only need to pick up four seconds! One excuss is that the track has changed a bit and I've heard it's slower now, just don't figure it should be that much different.

O-well, I''l be back over to Tally the 22nd of May in my car. Think I can turn 1;11s in the Firebird?

It'll all come back to you Judd, no worries...

My first time ever at Tally I was doing 1:10s also, but you'll get used to it again, and next thing you know, 1:05s will be here :)

I'll be bikeless for a while...

BUT... I can always show you the line for a 1:04-1:05 lap time ;)
If you pick up the Road Race 2005 DVD (WERA Racing Season Video), go to the Talladega CW lap footage, and you'll see leading the camera bike for the entire lap :) That guy now has his pro-card and does WERA Ex, and AMA :eek2:

Hey Judd, sorry about changing subjects. But, what's the deal with the GAFBA site? Maybe Cliff can post something over here to let some of us know what's going on. Thanks, Roger

We are changing finally. Nothing wrong at all, a good thing actually. I think we will be getting V Bullitein which should make the site a heck of a lot faster.
