    It was nice meeting you and riding with ya. Thanks for posting that! It was nice to get some footage of my body positioning. Looks like i still need to get my head out a bit more. I watched the pass about 10 times! Made it look like i know what i'm doing. haha!

    I saw someone talking photos yesterday at Mid-O too. Anyone know who it was?

    Yesterday ended up being a perfect day at Mid-O. Rain held off until the last session was over (except for novice). They were lined up in the pits as it was sprinkling but i think the coaches made the right move and cancelled the last session. I set another PR for the year with a 1:44.2. I was consistently running in the 44-48's without traffic. It's hard to explain but i think the more experienced riders will understand. But as i was riding faster, everything seemed to slow down. I was carrying a lot more speed through the corners but it felt slow; maybe slow isn't the correct term. I'm assuming this is just from experience and learning the track more. Either way, I greatly improved my turn 8, 9 and 13 corner speeds. The next corners to work on is 1 and 11b? (the right hander over the hill going into thunder valley). Those are both fast turns i know i slow down too much for.

    What class do you run? I'm in intermediate and usually file in around the #2 in the pits before the session. I don't have a number on my bike though. I got the 675 years ago cause no one had them; that and how awesome they are. Now they are everywhere!

    Monday is down to 20% rain. Just signed up for Mid-O. Have fun at PIRC! I'll be there at some point this summer.

    Haven't ridden there in 2-3 years so I would still be in the N group. I'll probably check the weather tomorrow morning and make the call. 92 is just so hot.

    So do i go with the 92F at PIRC on sat or gamble with the 77F 30% rain at Mid-O on Monday.

    Don't see what's any different than when we rode there couple years ago from a safety standpoint. And any new pavement has to be better than what it was before. I'm in!!!! I can't wait to get back out there.

    As far as i understand if you are a frequent rider (4+ days/year) you get 1 free cancellation a year. I'm not sure if that is a rolling year, based off last year or what. There hasn't been four days yet this year. Mid-O is an ice rink with any kind of moisture on the track. But they run rain or shine so you are SOL if you are not a frequent rider.

  13. Powerline Park

    First time down to Powerline Park in Saint Clairesville, OH. What a blast. 1,000 acres of muddy trail riding and drunken festivities. I didn't take my phone with me while riding so the only pictures i have are of camp. On a good weekend, i'm told they get 5-7,000 people. It was packed this time and was told it wasn't actually that bad; all the rain must of kept people away. There was dirtbikes, 4-wheelers, side by sides, jeeps, trucks with 4ft tires, deuce and halfs, really any and everything. We went down Friday morning and rode all day before a lot of the crowd got there. Saturday was a little bit more busy but we stayed off the main trails and didn't really get stuck behind too many people. We had a few people get stuck throughout. One guy had to leave his side by side overnight; it was 2AM and raining like a mofo. Could stand on the hill it was so slick. The main pond/drag was packed from 7PM till 4AM. I found it to get boring pretty quick though, i'd rather be out riding than standing around a bunch of drunken douchebags. I lost count how many vehicles were broken down and left on the trails or being towed out. Overall it was one of the most fun things i've ever done. I really want to get a side by side now but i have no where to store it or the trailer needed for it. I can't make it to this years labor day weekend but plan on going back next year.

  15. Mid-O - June 5

    I'll be there either the 5th or 6th; whichever one has the better forecast.
