Nice to see some depth of field. Assuming your fiance has a good bit of experience with a camera?

It's definitely a hobby of mine, which I enjoy a lot, but she knows the frustrations of always shooting others but rarely getting my own photos so she has taken it upon herself to learn more about how to use the camera.   There were lots of shots that she messed up because she forgot to move up the shutter speed and/or ISO (if needed) to give a bit more sharpness but I appreciate the fact that she will at least do what she can because she knows I enjoy it so much.   ( I should have taken out of manual mode and put it into shutter speed priority)

Looks like the K&N Oil Filter failed and shot oil everywhere ---

Glad your okay man. Making me reconsider my filters now reguardless of how convenient they are.

I had an issue with a K&N filter leaking once, ended up tracing it to the faulty way i safety wired it - the SS band clamp had a sharp edge that pierced the shell of the filter housing. Prolly not K&N's fault.

If they are pointing the red flag at you specifically, get off the track ASAP because you are probably spilling all kinds of crap all over the place. 

you mean BLACK flag.

Thanks for trying to give me a tow yesterday John. 

Ended up with 38.3 at the end of the day. Im sure if we had some clear track and your tow low 37s were in sight. 

i hate you guys. just can't bust out of the low 40s.  Felt like i was killin it but not so much. Maybe my laptimer needs recalibration......

You guys caught me chillin on pit road waiting to go.  Group 4 bike 165.  :riding:

Glad to meet the couple of you guys throughout the day.  Sorry I didn't hang out more but I hooked up with a few other friends and all hung out together in the heat and suffered as a group under a couple popups.  :)21015949_10212200827168704_6624878076387

I was under the impression that black flag pointing meant to proceed to pit lane, not exit the track as soon as you safely can because you or your bike is now a hazard to other riders.

Anytime Dan. Hopefully next time we get some open track and can get into a rhythm. Low 38's in traffic is fast though.

Sometime we need to compare data  and see where the low hanging fruit is

Nice, I kept asking if they had got you the sticker and Mark said he had Rob take it to you. You look good out there just stay away from the curbing, it's slick. :)

I really appreciate the help.  I stayed off it the rest of the day!  Rob did bring it down, I was thrilled to have him as a coach.

Isn't that what the meatball is for? 

Different tracks use different flags and sometimes with different meanings.  Mid O doesn't use the meatball.  The black flag displayed at start finish means come around and see the track Marshall.  Black flag from a corner worker pointed at you means get off the track as quickly and safely as possible.

Thanks for clearing that up.
