    You guys know that this is my favorite track! A lot of riders have been only to the North Course, so I've reposted a few links here for familiarization to the South Course as the date gets closer. :) Prior post with a lot of info. Some video: A guy zipping around running 1:20s maxing out at...

    Road Atlanta track walk

    Hey all. Weather permitting, I'm open to doing a track walk for folks Friday and/or Saturday after the track goes cold at 5 p.m. Chime in if you're interested. You'll be amazed at the helpful nuances that'll make you faster and safer on track over the weekend!

    CMP Thank you

    I had a blast at my first CMP of the season on Friday. Thank you to N2 for hosting and special thanks to the riders. This is the first track day at CMP (ever) where I saw no one go over the blend line at pit out or use the last apex before pit in. Kudos! I also witnessed a lot of great decision...

    Road Atlanta from Charlotte?

    Hey all. I have a few parts for another coach but won't be making Road Atlanta next weekend. Are any of you going from the Charlotte area and mind delivering them? Just a few small parts like clean axles, nothing large or dirty. Thanks! I'm near route 485 and Rocky River Road and can meet you...

    3 tracks 3 bikes; what do you choose?

    If you could run three track weekends on any bike(s) that you like, what would you choose? Portimao on a latest and last R6. I love the layout of that place and nothing beats riding a nimble Yamaha in the smiles department! And holy smokes on the racing there today, especially the big bikes...

    Best advice from a Coach/Control Rider?

    What is the best advice that you've received from a track day Coach? Were you able to easily implement it? Share it with others to help them ride safer and faster? Are you still able to successfully implement it?

    Riding efficiently

    Hi all, I'm always interested in hearing what techniques people use at a track day. Many people I ride with tell me that I look like I am using minimal energy to ride while they feel destroyed after each session and come in early and/or leave a day early. I used to go home and be in agony...

    R6 fork request

    Hey all, Thermosman has my forks and tells me that the left fork has some internal wear; Yamaha parts NLA. We'd prefer to swap in a good one (which he'll modify for me). Do any of you have a left 03-04 R6 (R6S the same) left fork you don't need/want? I think that the p/n is 5SL-23102-00-00...
