I know I am!

What are you going to try and work on? Any areas you want to try and improve?

I'll be there both days and looking forward to being at the track and riding with friends. NJ69 is gunna drop a few seconds and tame that CBR. We will see if the kracken can use that extra cylinder he just bought or not.

If anyone passes by my pit, make sure to say hi and introduce yourself! #75

Going up Friday and doing the track on Saturday.

Might stick around a bit on Sunday to watch.

Want to work on braking and looking ahead in the corner.

Can't wait.

My goal is to take some nice video footage and hopefully make a little video that is informative to try and help people better their ride craft. Hope to demonstrate different lines, trail braking, downshifting, etc.

Jon, that sounds great!

One the best ways I have found to explain trail braking is to have someone push their bike and lightly apply the brakes to see how little brake we are talking about carrying into the corner and how the geometry changes from that small application of the brakes. That type of parking lot demonstration might be a good thing to include in your video.

I'll be there both days with my focus being on later braking and faster entry into corners. It's going to be a blast!

Ill be there both days as well. Ill be working on corner speeds in T1 and T2, general higher corner entry speeds through better more efficient braking, and making T4, T6 and T12 my beeoch. Ill also be imparting noalage (aka knowledge) to all the ZARS Academy folks who are ready to step to the wonderful world of "spirited riding".

DK34, itll be great to FINALLY get some riding in with you this season!
JS75, get ready to be on tow duty
DS597, im excited to see what you have learned on your dirt bike
DW708, get ready to go fast buddy!

I had to cancel this one due to a deer head butting my collar bone and totalling my Triumph. Just had surgery, so it's iffy I'll even be able to run on Labor Day with my new to me track bike.

But I might come along this sunday just to hang out. Anyone know if I need to get on a guest list so I can get in without having to pay at the gate?
