Good report, but Ouch..... Done that in my old motocross days.

I swear just between my two races & pratice I saw 5-6 people either go down or were already down in 7.  I even almost highsided coming out of 7 in MW GP.  But all-in-all it was a good weekend considering it was my first of year, now I just have to drop some more time!

Jason, just keep at it.  Speed will take some time.  Continue working on setup and understanding the bike.  School will help.  Consistency is key.  Get with a good school and stick with it.  Same with a suspension tuner and mechanic...

Yep, I know... I'm still comming to grips with the CBR, its harder than thought it would be after spending years on v-twins & two strokes.
I was trying to do CSS at BHF (re-take L1 and add L2), but the dates just don't work for me this year, so I'm looking at the LCR advanced school this year instead, I just hate not doing at least one school every year.  For the suspension It's hard to choose, Ed or Ryan....

Either will be a great choice for suspension.  I chose Ed because he is local to me and doesn't race, so I know that he won't put me off for even one moment during the race day.  Not that Ryan ever would though.  He's always been there for me on odd needs that I always seem to have.

Great Report Jeff!  :thumb:

Glad to hear your wrist didn't sustain serious injury so you could race at Topeka, albeit hurting like hell.
