I have a action cam that mounts on your tank and I will have it out there and you can use it, if I do end up riding, I can get some footage of you as well, I am sure Mark will let me play in B group for a session or two to film you guys. Here is a video that I mounted the camera on my buddie's R6 and he filmed me doing a warm up lap going about 75%.

Well, I checked both Accuweather and The Weather Channel. Both are saying rain, but looking on the bright side it says 30% chance. So there should be some opportunity for some track time with out the rain.

Gosh Dan, you're so positive. There is a reasonable chance that it will be only light rain. And a decent chance of a drying track. Not to mention, a good opportunity how to ride smooth in wet conditions. If I paid for it I'd be riding fo sho.

fwiw...swooping right into the race line on entry like the videographer did is a big no-no. Whether the rider was staff or customer makes no difference...

If you watch his line, he was intentionally trying to stay out of puddles the camera bike rode through without problem.

Paying mote attention to the standing water than his line perhaps??

Have fun Y'all!!

Those shiny areas aren't puddles, though there is alittle sitting water, but not enough to try to avoid, those are just patchwork that are different color and when wet are very shiny. If there were puddles like that on the track, the track company is not doing a good job cause there is a truck there with a blower that drives around the track and blows off the water.

Observing the rider who crashed and the the rider in front and the path of the camera bike, I'd say the crash happened when Dianese guy tried to get back on line after going off line to avoid one of those shiney areas with sitting water on it. Having never ridden BW I'll bow to your greater experience.

Well, how was it?? Any boring track video:sleep:?? I wanna see!!

Nope, I didn't end up going out today and it is raining here right now, so I am glad I didn't. Also, the Dianese guy, we'll just call him that, I don't think the guy knew any line at all and was just trying to make it around the track, C group rider that don't look like he had much track experiece.

Well Sunday was a beautiful day with sunny skies all day long. Broke in the R1 (not literally) and I am slowly starting to learn the bike.

It was good to see Tony, Ed, Jacob and Shane out there I hope you guys had fun.

Monday it rain pretty much from the start of the day. The track was very wet and I did not even bother putting on my leathers.

There where a few riding Monday...rain or shine. Saw Pete out there in the hail! He forced his kid out in the rain, wind, hail....he did want to go out in it. He came in took his helmet off...low and behold there was a smile. He goes, " that was fun, boy did I learn alot." We got a couple of sesions with a break in the weather. Wet, but no rain or hail. Wind even died down. A couple of the guys said there were able to get about 50 laps in. All that doging the weather.

Good times out there.
