Yeah!  It's getting closer!  And everyone shut up about weather, I don't want that negativity fucking up this thread.  It's going to be perfect.

Well, add the wife and I to the list of quitters.  Her Mom is now scheduled for knee replacement surgery that weekend, so Jen is heading to TN to help out around the house the whole week.  I'm trying to get more time off so I can go as well, but we're definitely out for this....sucks, but family is always first.  You all enjoy and speed safely!

judging from this map - https://www.forbes.com/sites/marshallshepherd/2017/07/17/four-emerging-misconceptions-on-social-media-about-the-upcoming-great-american-eclipse/#49c9543f447b - pretty dark. Looks like twilight rather than night time though. The full shadow of the moon passes just south of Columbus. Looks like we will get the most darkness at around 2pm though.

 

Wonder if they will go an hour or 2 late to compensate? Might be worth calling them to ask.

 

Does Mid-O have lights? :p

So yesterday I pointed out to the wife that this new bike gives me the opportunity to do track days.

"Oh, so you can burn up the new tires?"

I had the Grom on track there last season when I was working. It did not set any records but it was faster than several novice times :lol: 

if I make this I'll be on the KTM.

I'd bump down but I dont like Mid-Ohio's novice group structure. I'll do what I can.

Derek your coach will take good care of you. I went there last week solo and had a great time. The first time on the track they have you ride far left and pit in. Then they take you far right and on the 3rd lap they show you race line. My coach was a cool guy and after mentioning I found myself wanting to go faster, he definitely picked up the pace on the 2nd session.

Novice is very structured. The ropes will be shown by the coaches. No one else.
