Re: VIR Trackday (marvin)

I just emailed Bonnie to see if any spots are open, which I doubt, but the event isn't listed as full on the website. Any of you guys run the south course before? I'm wondering want kind of top speeds to expect in the novice group? I'm itching to take my 05 625 motard out. Its pretty quick to 100, but there isn't much left after that with stock gearing. South course is pretty short, but the straight looks pretty long on the layout map. But the whole course is only ~1.6 miles correct, so the straight is around a half mile or so? Patriot course would be perfect.

Re: VIR Trackday (jbraslins)

Thats what I figured, but you running pretty high revs in six before you start braking for turn one. I asked STT about the 625 so hopefully they'll have an idea.

The south track is well suited to a smaller bike. While the staight is fairly long, it is mostly up-hill. The last set of corners before the Oak tree turn are fast and flowing. All in all, the track is quite technical with double apexes, off camber turns and a great chicane sort of thing that plunges down hill. I don't have it down after riding it one time last year but I do think it may be the most fun track I have been on. A small bike would be great and the Novice group is likely to be quite cozy. I hope you can come ride with us.

Re: (NC Rick)

Yeah Jager come on out!!!!

Who cares if they blow by you on the straight, let them go, have some more room for yourself once you get there.

Re: (jbraslins)

Yeah I not too worry about being passed, that is sure to happen. Its just this statement in the policies section of the STT website:
<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD>Quote, originally posted by STT Poilcy Page »</TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">YOU MUST RIDE A MOTORCYCLE APPROPRIATE FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE TRACK RIDING. SEVERELY UNDERPOWERED MOTORCYCLES, OR THOSE NOT SUITED TO HIGH SPEEDS OR LEAN ANGLES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE TRACK, if you have a question regarding your bike, contact us.</TD></TR></TABLE>

Are you guys only doing the the first day or both days? I was going to try to get into the second day (sunday) since I need to do the 600 m first service on the KTM. I can probably get the service done tonight or tomorrow night, but I'm waiting for a jet kit to come in also and I'm not sure how long that is going to take to install. I would like to meet up with you guys though, so if you are only going to be there sat, I might just put the jet kit off until later.

Re: (jager)

I always do just one. I am usually so beat and sore by the end of track day, i feel like if i go out the next day, i'd be bound to make some mistakes that'd cost me.

Re: (jager)

Just got an email back from Monte. He said the 'tard is a great bike for the south course, will be faster than the streeters in parts and slower in others. Also talked to thumpertalk, they are second day airing the jet kit today and should be here on thursday and they are only charging me a few extra dollars (it was originally ground).
Still not sure which day to go for though. Lets see if I can get some info on time for the JD kit install, there will be some testing involved to. But the improved jetting, new airbox lid and exhaust should help, so it would be nice to have the stuff installed pre track day.

Re: (jager)

I went ahead and signed up for sunday. That way I won't be rushing to get it done and miss something. Plus it will give me all day sat. to test the different jets and find a good setup. Anyone going to be there on sunday?

I'll catch you next time, jbraslins. You turned in your plate yet or you still riding in the street a little bit?

Trust me a motard will do fine. We had a couple of them at Road Atlanta this weekend (we called them "rolling chicanes") but they did fine. Heck even I was a "rolling chicane' at 140mph compared to a gsxr1k at 160ish through 8 and 9.
