Hey kitesurfer,
Good to hear. Sounds like a plan in December. Hopefully I get a few more in before the end of the year too.

Hey fellas.......

About a month ago I lost the front end as I changed directions on that fast right hander before lukey.
Bike slid, hit the kitty litter and flipped 3 times with a roll on its nose thrown in for good luck.
I slid, hit the kitty litter, slid some more then must've caught something and rolled 4 times then did a cartwheel on my head before rolling another 4 times.
All I remember was thinking surely I'm gonna stop rolling soon. Spose you roll for a while when you crash at 194km/h.

Both me and the bike faired ok. I had nothing but a bruised arse. Tank is rooted, I'll leave that for the time being.
Kitty litter sand blasting everywhere. Fairings, master cylinder, a few plastics, back of dash.

Apparently your suppose to roll of the throttle on the change of direction there to load the front back up....... I never have lol.
Must be why my lap times have improved just a little :lol:

Hey Johnny, currently only around 2:00 flat. I seem to be a bit stuck and whenever I feel like I'm doing a better time, I come up behind someone and can't get past them. I've clearly got a lot to learn!

So have you gone up into the green group now?

That should solve your issue with people in the way. I get it continually in the fast group too. It's the price you pay on a 600 when other guys are on thous. They can be 3 seconds a lap slower but a pita to get around still.

Ok so without sounding pompous there's time to be found everywhere. But if you want to find 5 seconds fairly fast concentrate on turn one, Casey and the hayshed.
They are the corners which give you the biggest bang for your buck from a time perspective.

Are you using racechrono or the like? Do you know what your apex speed is?

Yep, gone in green group twice now, although last time it rained for more than half the day and I only really got one fully dry session all day (whinge whinge: I still had a good day though!).

I do use RaceChrono, although I didn't take it out last time due to the crappy weather: I wanted to concentrate on staying upright rather than personal bests!

I understand what you're saying about those super fast "kinks" and believe it or not I had started to suspect that was where I was wasting time by being a wuss.

Next time I go out I will make sure I take the Chrono with me and let you know!
