Yeah, I normally try to knock them out quickly, but sometimes get behind.  I had some downtime last night and was able to get it done.  Gingerman is a real good time.  Not like any track ISN'T a good time, but G-man is just a real 'nice' place...

Looking forward to seeing you at BHF.  Hope the wife enjoys it!

Jeff's the "rain man!" LOL, strong work Jeff and too bad about being jipped on time to switch the tires, but you still didn't do too bad! I didn't get to reply in the Blackhawk thread, but it seems Gingerman is what your brain needed.

yes...  gingerman did the head good...

I also have had some coaching since then with Peter from Sportsbike.  He's managed to get in my head the way that Keith Code can.  There aren't many people who can really make a mental difference.  Those guys are 2 that can...

If it's wet, it's a 50/50.  I'll either crash or be winning and/or on the podium for everything....

sounds like you know where you'll finish in different conditions... why even waste your gas going to the track?  8)

nice job getting in the cash. your race report was a frustrating read when I heard about those missed opportunities to finish even faster (especially the double-jeff-downshift)

 :thumb: glad to hear your head is clear again. you aren't mortal!
you can trust me. I don't even have a mustache.

I keep going just to see where the others will finish! LOL...

Won't say that I'm immortal, but accept the risks once again and push that piece out of my mind since it's been accepted.

The one thing I enjoy about roadracing is that it's an INDIVIDUAL sport.  I can't blame the team.  I have to own up to my own results.  Unfortunately in a lot of my race reports I tend to push blame around.  That simply can't continue if I'm going to do well...

Gingerman is one of the tracks that I will miss the most.  A lot of people don't like it, but it is one of my fav's.  Great job Jeff.
