Five of us gettin out for about 200-250 miles through the Southern Counties of MD. Charles, St.Mary's, Calvert
Pace is quick.........not Noob friendly.

Was working with two of my buddies that are CR's for NESBA. They were struggling through parts of the track so I followed then offered a tow to help them out then rolled on about my business.......
Les is videoing, a NESBA CR. He gets behind me at 3:42 and between me and James Easley another CR following me in the opening laps.
I rolled with Les for a lap watching his lines through 9, 10, 11, and 12 where he complained of slacking, then at 6:30 I try to tow him around and check back after a lap and see he wasnt there so I dropped off some faster laps........and out of the video.

Here's one of my street rides I lead that got video'd a year or so ago......

There is a serious group of riders we have down here that hooks up regularly for rides. Three of us are avid track riders/racers. The rides are pretty quick paced and all back woods down here through SoMd. I have a 540 mile tour that goes through Prince Georges, Charles, St.Marys, Calvert, and Anne Arundel. All back roads, deep country and minimal traffic. Its and all day deal and leaves you close to home and without the long ride back from our WVa rides which are also normally 500 plus miles round trip.

nice videos you looked very smooth on thunderbolt. What lap times do you run there? And what tires are you running?

I dont race, just track days, so lap times are not race pace but with typical Advance group traffic. I manage to stay in the low 28's to high 29's as long as the group is moving well and my passes getting completed quickly.
At Summit Main I stay in the 16-18 range with traffic.........


I may get back into a few races this season again, its been since 09 since my last race.........and took a career based hiatus in 10 and 11 then built the 750 last spring and got back into the groove.

211's..........but really need to get a handle on my tire wear and suspension. And further more, my see-food diet. I am noramlly 185 at ride weight and have ballooned up to 215. Definately changes things.....LOL

I stopped riding street back in my last Race/TD stint in 04-09 but realized it actually hurt my performance.

You cant do enough TD's to constantly keep your skill set fresh. Think about how much track time racers put in. And add to that the learning process you going through.
I use to find myself constantly refamiliarizing myself with my bike for the first two or three sessions.

Then I started riding street again, and put together a nice 20 min loop (off Croom Rd) that I can get a nice paced lap in and my lap times continued to drop.
