Nice video, you were hauling ass, right up until the agricultural expedition.

Next focus point from the apex of 4? Entry of T6

Not the yellow daffodils outside of 4....

Question OPRT @ TRMP 8/21 - Big Favor To Ask From BC Riders

For any of you BC folks coming down, I have a big favor to ask:
I live about 20 mi. S of the WA/BC border (I know, I know, Damned Yanks!); I left my crappy HF rear stand at MSpeed shop on Commercial St. last Sunday.
No chance to retrieve it before I head down to TRMP Saturday. Besides, the fuel alone would cost more than the stand is worth...!

Would it be possible for somebody to grab it and bring it down to TRMP for me? A reward of an Ice-cold Half-Sack will gladly be offered.

Let me know if you could help a Southern Brother out. FWIW, this is being cross-posted on BCSportbikes as well.

Thanks in Advance,
TedR


EDIT 8/17 -

This issue has been handled - please Disregard.

ahaha I'm so glad I got a front-row view of that. Best pass of the day. The dude 1 bike ahead of us was rolling but I didn't have a camera, sorry.

Thanks to my new suit and being able to move around on my bike now, I found a few muscles that I didn't know I had until this morning. Excellent day yesterday, even with the wind (although my pop-up wouldn't agree...RIP). I final had my knee to the ground for a millisecond and I picked up my speed in some of the corners.

I'm also thankful to the Repsol Honda rider in group 1 that didn't beat my ass for the poorly judged pass I made in 10 (he took my apology better than I could have expected considering I felt his fender or tire on the back of my calf for a second...). Really nice guy and a chat/fist bump to show that we were cool.

Already saving for a seasons pass for next year!

We had a great wind block until 2, when our neighbor said he had enough of the wind and wanted to start heading back to BC. Once his truck and trailer pulled out it was brutal. I pulled my canopy down, my brother in law left his up to be bent up by the gusts.

Great day indeed! Safe day, fun day. Sad to see the 848 Corse and little CBR(?) trying to mate in the middle of 13. The were some good looking bikes before the indecent, hopefully they will bounce back with minimal problems.

I didn't see very many people with shade left in the afternoon. Mine ended up in the trash too. The wind got pretty crazy going up the hill to 11. Fun day though, thanks OPRT staff. See you next year.

Had another fun time at an OPRT track day. The wind was annoying and affected my confidence on the track, but at least it wasn't 90+ degrees hot or raining (both of which I experienced this year).

Ended up taking my canopy down in the afternoon before it got damaged. Even saw some branches falling off the trees in the wooded area to the west of Turn 15 in the afternoon. Glad the big tree by Turn 14 didn't lose any branches, saw it swaying a fair amount with some of the stronger wind gusts.

That was a fun day, thanks OPRT. I learned that wind is best counteracted with liberal application of throttle and speed...I guess it doesn't hurt that the bike and I weigh in at about 1/3 of a ton together.

So that's what they were. Tried my best to miss them but I know I must have hit them a couple of times.
