Forecast has been trolling all week, but it's looking like a perfect NW day.

Cannot wait to ride again.

I'll be there, will be the first track day of the year for me and the first track day with the new Ohlins front & rear suspension parts. Hope there will be someone there to help me get a good baseline setup.

The OPM truck and crew will be there to do tires and base line suspension set ups.

That's what I was hoping to hear. I had Michael with OPM install the Ohlins cartridge kit and he also recently mounted some new Q3s.

Thanks OPRT! It was a perfect day.
Been years since I'd been there, like 16, had a really good time with open track and few incidents.
Got to watch some dragracing too, which I've never seen in the flesh.

It was great day OPRT, thank you.
Had to leave early as my FZR started making a nasty noise and lost power....ooooooo, I hate that! Found it was only the set screw had backed out of the EXUP valve and the valve was staying shut. Shoot, I didn't even lose the screw! All better now and ready for next time.

Great! Glad it was an easy fix, it sure sounded odd, but an exhaust restriction at high rpm could certainly do that. Who'd of thought?
Kudos on your diagnostic skills!
That's a really nice FZR, congrats to you for keeping an epic bike in such great form. And riding it like it was intended!

That was my first time at Pacific - great track. Ran fairly consistent 1:35's that I was more or less satisfied with for now.

Scenic, undulating and twisty, tons of elevation and bumpy! You really don't get a true sense of the elevation until you're out on track.

I think it's a lot more physically demanding than The Ridge and it really exposed where I need to improve both in bike setup and riding technique before gridding up next season with WMRRA. All of my session notes cited "fitness/stamina" as the primary thing holding me back. I ain't in my 20's anymore!

Thanks to Ryan at 360P for the great photos and OPRT for a smooth operation with very few bikes on track. I think 300 level had maybe 10 riders?
