I am scheduled to attended the March 21 Corner Speed Racing School at VIR.
I got everything ready on the Duc for its track day view. :dthumb:
Even a unneeded set of Pilot Powers. Anybody want to buy some used Pilot Sports?
Less than a week to go and I wake up to find 3 inches of snow in the yard. :upset: No big deal except it will be cutting it close on passing by VIR before School. I hate depending on the weather man to get it right. :upset:
Its supposed to be Partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 60s, :thumbs: with 30% rain on Tuesday.
I guess it would make for some interesting schooling in the wet. :lol:

Hey all, made it back;
The school is great! :dthumb:
Aaron is a straight forward guy and will do every thing he can to make you a better rider/racer.
I learned allot about ridding a big V twin at speed. (what I wanted to do)
Aaron and the instructors both gave me tips after ridding behind me, watching my ridding style.
Improved my corner speed as well as entrance & exit speeds.
I highly recommend everybody to take the school, novas or expert.

Although, I didn't make it un skaved. In the last session I was experimenting with gear selection in turns 4 through 7 and let the torque of the twin get the better of me. :leaving:

Im ok and the bike will be after a few more $$$. :cursin:
Oh well, live & learn!
one of many pic's

Ok; I took some shots of the rashed Duc!
As far as others go all I have is the one that was given to me at the track.
I ordered more and can post when I get them.

The nose left as the bike went over the rumble strip.
Left side, nose, left clip-on, peg and paint.
I may do something different with it this time.
