    Track Day CMP! OMG CMP!!! August 13/14 with PRE

    We haven't bought any pictures lately because after a while they all look the same. But there were some from this weekend that were too good to pass up! Plus, pictures ALWAYS make a thread better. Where's Karen?

    We bought it from Amazon in 2016 when it went on sale. I had to wait a while for that to happen but we got it for $150 off if I remember correctly. It's a recumbent style.

    Wall of words incoming! I hate road bikes. They are uncomfortable to ride and stiff as a board. I couldn't sell the ones I bought fast enough. I have a hybrid that I only use on-road. It would be miserable off-road. Most cyclists will say it's dumb to ride a bike with flat bars and...

    At the rate I'm going through rear tires on the SV, I may as well get a big bike!

    Sure but then in a month I'll have to change it again to 147. After watching the video a few times I've already figured out a very easy way to drop another second off my times: just go buy a Panigale V4S.

    Riding with self driving cars

    When we bought KK's CR-V I was pretty excited about it having Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control. I loved the idea of being able to set the cruise control and not have to cycle it off and on every time I came up on a slower car. In practice we both hated both features. Neither of us...

    Here's a session of KK riding with her friends Nekole and Liz. Easter Egg: the camera picked up KK manically laughing in her helmet when Nekole passed her going into turn 4. Funny stuff! I haven't gone through all of her video yet but the best time I've seen so far is 2:05. I think on an R7...

    Waaaaiiiiiit a minute ... are you saying I could go racing and potentially not finish last? I might have to attend one of the race schools this year! :unsure: Or was it just that were only two people registered in those races? :D

    I would very seriously like to thank all the amazing coaches that have helped me since starting last year, including the three that are here: Brad, Alan, and Dan! The excitement that I am feeling right now would never have happened without your guidance, persistence, and dedication to teaching...

    HOLY CRAP! I'M INTO THE 1:48s!!!!! On an SV650!!!!!!!!!!! I know that's not going to win any races but please allow me to celebrate! My previous fastest lap at CMP (that I know of) was a 1:48 on the GSX-R750, but that was all horsepower and no skill. Now I'm doing that on a bike with barely...

    Haha! She started first and finished last and left a trail of carnage and broken dreams in her wake! Not that I actually saw any of it. Having lived with KK for thirty years, I knew to stay as far away from her as possible. :D
