Making my second trip to Barber this weekend. I know DJ Life and his crew are attending, anyone else on the board going?

My last time around the track ended in a lowside in T5, must avenge that and lower my times considerably to keep from getting run over in "A" group. My previous best was 1:44, most people are in the :30's. Time to see if I have improved any in a years worth of riding. Hopefully will have my R1 calipers on (waiting on spacers). I friggin "had" to buy Vesrah SRJL XX pads. The world is out of SRJL's and a I didn't want to go back to RJL's. A lot of dough for pads, prolly a lot more stopping power than I have stones to use. Also have a TRE on the bike this time and me own HD GoPro with enough memory to record every session. Hopefully can put a good action vid together when we are done.

Quick Barber update. Saturday got cancelled due to rain and severe weather in the area. Might could have gotten two sessions in, in the rain but NESBA elected to keep everyone off the track and we were able to get full credit for that day :lol

Sunday's weather was near perfect. There was a good breeze blowing to facilitate the track drying and help combat the 80 degree high. By the second session I was down to :41's and second session after lunch broke the :40 barrier. Got some decent video from the new HD GoPro I'm working to put together.

The R1 calipers and XX pads performed flawlessly. Monster freaking brakes on this thing now.

Good hanging with you guys Chris, see you next time, maybe VIR????

And it's freakin April not May, what was I thinking? Got a tow from a really fast cat on the same bike as me here in the beginning of the video, then got in a few laps with some sweet open track....

A Bazzazism. A hard shift by the Q/S will set it off.

The track is gorgeous and wide. The Indy cars are beating the hell out of it. A lot of new ripples and the old ones seem worse.

Heck yeah we're going! Gonna ride Sat and Sun. PM me your number so we can meet up. We've got a 16ft black enclosed pulled by a black Titan. Dunno where we will setup, not on pit wall unless that is all that's left.
