First, big thanks to Tanner and his crew for giving me undivided help in fixing my RC51 at the Summit Point today. They really put in some sweat to help me.
Thanks again big guy..
After the first session at Summit Point Main today, my RC started sounding funny. I came in, and found out my header pipe had seperated! For sure I thought that was the end of the day. Tanner came over and offered his help, I said it looked hopeless. His exact words were "at least let me try"..
After sweating over it for a half hour, Tanner got it rigged so I could at least try to another session. Well, it worked and I almost crashed in Turn 1. Not because of the pipe, but because I had out braked every dam body in sight, and because of my increased speed, some kind of way, I go frozen looking straight ahead. No need to tell where that put me.. Anyway, I saved it and didn't run off.
Next session, I was more smoother and faster..I think I got two more sessions in after lunch, and then the bracket gave way, and that ended my day. I had a ball. Couldn't get mad at my RC51, after all, it has 47,400 miles on the clock. Something is bound to break with that kind of mileage. Well, somebody at the track, that knew me, told me he had a header pipe home and will have his brother bring it to the track tommorrow.. Cool
Today was my first day in "I" too. Nesba gave me a half day credit, which I think was very, very nice of them.
I saw Superbike2001(Todd), and he is getting race plastic on the bike, and will be joining Coleman in his assault to rape all racetracks...
