    What Are Your Thoughts on This?

    i've been lucky enough that being a coach my head is on a swivel... I spend most of my time riding while turned around, its weird I know. that said I kinda get used to expecting the unexpected.. I cant tell you how many incidents ive seen on a weekend basis that would make you just shake your head. this has actually greatly helped me in racing .. but your 100% right.. time and experience will help you in the long run

    it's a catch 22 we all want to win... and we will all at some point do something not as intelligent to do so... I would be more worried at first about the dude you passed on the left as you then went wide and off track.. he needed to stop too and you could have collected him as well. of course it is always easy to arm chair it afterwards

    What Are Your Thoughts on This?

    this may sounds a bit contradictory at times but I think its kinda subjective... on one hand racing is racing and i'll do whatever I can to win i'll hold that gas a moment longer or wait to brake a hair later.... though I still do it knowing that barring any outside conditions i'll stay on track. have I ridden of track I certainly have I push my limits and have gone off the surface .. but honestly maybe 2 times a year... I will NEVER purposefully hold on to the gas or wait on the brakes so long that I know i'll wreck or go off track... if I go off track that means I was NOT in control and I wrecked... meaning even if I do not go down.. and I roll through and back on track. I have still failed and I "wrecked" this is unacceptable to me personally. As I told another buddy about club racing at our age (young assed impetuous 35) I am not competitive or young enough and chasing points isn't ever going to get me a ride that pays, so I do it for the fun, the camaraderie and the thrill I get from rolling next to another sharing the same. maybe that was a load of drivel but maybe it helps

    50% off Arai Corsair-X Sale

    i will not nor ever hesitate to pay $600-800 or more for a helmet that does exactly what i want it to do... fit, finish and MOST importantly protect my head the best that a helmet can do... this is certainly not to say that $300 helmet couldn't protect me... this to me reminds me of a suit, cheaper works.. but do you want 1.0mm of cowhide protecting you or 1.5mm of premium whatever hide giving you superior abrasive and heat dispersion properties and your sliding down the road on all aspects of your body at blank odd mph i know what i would choose PS bump for Riders Discount offering a kick ass deal on my personal choice of helmet

    NCM Motorsports Park, April 21-22

    No Tim, you can sign up in either Intermediate or novice as a new to STT rider. though generally if your new and make an account on the site or call in to sign up they will ask if you have ever ridden the track before just for safety sake to make sure a first time track day rider doesn't get out in intermediate. for Advanced you have to have a valid Expert race license to sign up in advanced for the first time ever at STT.

    School me on travel trailers..

    max i see the opposite atleast in the toy hauler world... most of the time the older siding style tend to have bowing and leak issues at the seams... the 1 piece sides and roofs on the fiberglass do very well as long as you maintain them.. EG the roof is the most important thing to the life of the body.... seal it at least 2 times a year. cover it or store indoors during the winter and you'll be great bad things on both sides

    What to expect on track day?

    depends on the track and the org putting it on as there maybe more room on a bigger track for more riders per group... most tracks allow 30-45 per group . progression comes in 2 forms.. most of the time as you as a rider are doing well.. smooth, consistent good lines a coach in your group EG novice will notice this and follow you.(you most of the time won't know this as you shouldn't ever be looking back).. see what your doing then either pull in front and correct or adjust then see how you learn or just at the end of the session bring you in and talk about how things are going .. they may suggest a next group up bump at that point you move to the next group IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE with it.. the second is , you feel you are progressing and feel you are ready , then you can ask a coach to evaluate you the same as the above will occur... the coach will tell you to ride your ride don't change anything and then watch you and see how you do... at the end they'll pull you in then tell you what to fix and how first or move you up. this happens will all advancements do not get discouraged if the coach says your not ready, work on the points and address again... do not expect to advance a group on your first day! very very few do... stay humble always open and learning and it will come . register as early or late as you feel comfortable... most days fill up quickly once you get to about 1-2 weeks away... With STT if you buy the membership ($55 a year) you can pay for any day you wish early then if 1-2 days out you don't like the weather you can call in and get a FULL credit towards your next day! this only happens as a member its a perk, as well as breakdown day insurance and day discounts

    Trackday Sandbagging

    it certainly does... i at one point went into a long discussion about this.... basically, it would open up to all sports to be sued and possibly win for any injury or issue that arises on the track... and if they can sue and possibly win against the org... what will stop someone from doing it to another rider.... so long story short he is now on his 4th suit first was the track then he sued the county then mazda as the tracks title sponsor... all have been thrown out because he signed a waiver..... now he is suing the track day org Keigwins , a judge has finally agreed to hear the case next month... only because Kims high prced lawyer found a clause in the track to the track orgs contract that says the org has the right to inspect the track for any issues and have them addressed... from the orgs side those sandbags have been in place at their events for years.... as well as many other events... save for high priced races EG WSBK , motoamerica and big car series... the org says they have ran many years with no issues in regards to the sandbags... Kim states they should have let all riders know about the possible issue.... here is where it gets fuzzy.... kim says you should have told me (all riders) well according to the org and many other riders he was late to the riders meeting and wouldn't have known anyways if we did state it.... problem then may lie in the fact that riders meeting as mandatory and no rider should be allowed on track with out being there... so he was still allowed on track (i get how could you know for sure if he was there or not... you cant exactly take a roll call) a lot of problems arise if he wins... insurance rates raise the price of days to astronomical heights , insurance companies refuse to insure orgs officially making orgs responsible and many other unseen issues... track day and race orgs are sued on the regular... but 99% are tossed out due to the waiver... and rider acknowledgement of issues happen... but this COULD be a big issue

    School me on travel trailers..

    well forest river pretty much has the general monopoly on trailers so even a lot of the brands out there are made by them... but they do have a lot of variation in cost and features... i personally wasn't a fan of and haven't heard much good come from their econo line trailers the wolf/ wolfpup and coyote... they look pretty good but felt and preform cheaply.. i liked a lot of the renegade and XLR series and work and play is what i own but I'm unsure if they make a TT

    School me on travel trailers..

    i agree on money pits.. they remind me of a home... except they are built even cheaper... moving constantly and vibrate themselves to shit haha i'd keep buying them of course... you will have many options with a travel trailer vs a toy hauler.. layouts and amenities are easier to come buy with those... will say though at 20 ft you will actually be looking at a 15 or 16 foot living space trailer as 3-4 foot will be the hitch in the front... and even most 16 ft trailers fully loaded are around 4000-5000lbs on the low side... personally i don't care what you tow with... BUT you shouldn't ever load your tow vehicle past 75% of its total towing capacity... you will really strain parts... so a fully equipped ridgelines towing cap is actually 5k.... so 75% is 3,750 lbs total weight.... your rating showed will show empty weight and cargo weight added together is the gross weight... remember 1 gal of water = 8lbs so if available wait to fill your fresh till you get close to our destination as say you may weigh 3k with full water but acceleration and braking will slosh it around and strain parts and brakes more! and every single thing you put in the trailer... bedsheets / food / clothes / dishes ect adds to your weight
