Had a great weekend. Weather was perfect, especially for July. Got to meet LargeFather (I thought he'd be bigger :shrug)
Unfortunately, that is the case at VIR. It is a thin track, and most, if not all, guys in B and I groups will tend to move towards the outside of the track when coming up to the entrance of a turn. I have had to learn to alter my lines a lot when running @ VIR. When using the RR, you have two options for passing; Pass on the exit of a corner, or pass on the brakes when approaching the corner. It is nearly impossible to power past someone on a semi-straight stretch. This is especially true on the N. course. You don't want to risk passing in the kink on the front straight w/ a rider next to you on the inside line. The cool thing with NESBA and I group is you can technically pass anywhere on the track; it only has to be on the outside if you are leaned over in a corner. You have to choose wisely and don't hesitate to make your move when you see it open up. I have gotten so used to the CR's passing on the inside that it doesn't even phase me anymore. It was fun running with you though.Wolley said:Thanks, Ridge. I was trying to get up to pace. I just was having a hard time finding places to legally pass. A lot of guys were using the whole track and it was hard to make a clean pass. Had quite a few inside passes on me which I was not too happy about, but it seems the best way to pass on North.
I was on the black 1000RR #28 What color is your bike?600RidgeRunner said:Man, I must be slipping. I didn't see you out there either, and you only live 30 minutes from me. I saw a few RR's on South and North, but the only one I really got to ride with was Wolley.
