  1. Broken. I found someone to weld it for this weekend and a new one in the way for later. Thanks for asking.
  2. Thanks, Brandon. I appreciate the referral.
  3. Hello everyone. I have recently listed a home for sale for one of our fellow riders and racers. I hope that you will take a moment and think about who you know that might be interested in buying. I have attached a few photos and there is more information available here. It is an updated 2 bed, 1 bath ranch in High Ridge. There is room to easily add a 3rd bedroom. The home is listed for $100,000. It comes with a plenty of garage space for bikes! If you can think of anyone who is looking to purchase a home or sell their current home, please let me know. I also have other homes for sale that are excellent options: Lakefront and built to entertain - $355k Lakefront on a wooded lot - $265 Ranch in Fenton, short sale- $135 You can find out about all of these homes on our website.
  4. Ha! Probably not as far as it felt like. There was a little leg flailing though. Reminded me of when I hit the curbing in the same corner when I was on the 500.
  5. What an awesome weekend! Some stupidity on Saturday cost me some $$$, but the days turned out well. Although I wasn't pleased with everything that I did, I was please with each session overall. It's been a long time since I could say that. Rick, it was good to see you, wish it hadn't been to watch Chris being picked up. A huge thanks to Jeff for the shifting advice from the Star school! That made a world of difference in how I setup for the corners and allowed for changes in braking, corner speed and stability. Nathan, it's been a long time. Glad you came out. Too bad the bike looks worse than when you sold it to me.
  6. They have demo suits available but with very limited sizes and colors. Can't beat the price at $250: http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Categories.bok?category=Teknic+Apparel%3ADemo+Suit+BlowOut
  7. I can't ride at Gateway without being with STLAR. That would throw me off. I promise to come down and visit you guys on Sunday.
  8. I don't see anyone planning to setup in turn 5. That will be strange. Jeff, can I pit next to you? I will try to come out Friday for setup.
  9. Something about Autobahn didn't click with me. It was enjoyable, but not my favorite. Maybe I need to give it another chance.
  10. You guys will love HPT. Nice speed and the minor elevation changes are fun. It isn't too difficult to learn, so you will be fine, Gary.
  11. I thought Topeka was October. Time to ramp up the funding discussion at home.
  12. I took Tyrell's advice on starting in the dirt and it was spot on, as usual. Low maintenance and easy to handle while getting the hang of a new skill.
  13. You should have borrowed Xia to ride on Sunday, Dom. Sorry to see so many of you guys with issues this weekend. Glad it wasn't worse. Can we call an end to the high sides now?
  14. Judging by the tach, I would say he applied throttle and it broke loose. It's only a split second, so it's difficult to tell for sure. Given the speed he was travelling and how far over he was, I would guess he asked too much of the tire. Were you monitoring tire temps? Do you watch the tire wear to read suspension setup? I don't recall seeing any mention of what lap this was. Early in the session or later? How old was the tire and how many heat cycles had it been through? Any bluing showing on the tire now? Regardless, I'm glad it ended the way it did. Broken bones suck!
