Garth, for us that live far away. I apreciate the seat time.  It payed off.  450lb. BMW's in the 26's and 27's....  could not be done without you having the day for us to prep and get ready.

Cheers,

N8!

Man where have I been for this thread!! Kick ass Garth! I think this thread has the highest views in a long long time!
Hey don't forget guys that I am also a track day rider too! I didn't learn my racing skills from doing track days I was already an accomplished racer before track days became available.
I now instruct part time for NESBA and I enjoy it very much. Not only do I instruct but I also test & tune my bike during the track days. Testing prior to both Road America rounds this season helped me in so many ways. At both rounds we were able to sort out problems with the bike that would have happened in the middle of the race weekend for me. I am usually the fastest rider at NESBA track days I attend if not in the top bracket of riders when AMA support teams practice. Now yes in the advanced session during NESBA I often catch up to slower riders serveral times per lap. But there are times such as the end of the day when most track day riders either run out of energy / get faster / run out of tires / fuel / or crash so either they are not out there or have gotten faster so I don't catch other riders as quickly where I can run some fast laps where I might not catch anyone in a turn. So my lap times are still pretty darn fast.
Even if I never get an open track I can still work on one turn at a time. Whatever turn might be open for me to fly into. What I can offer my advanced riders is the confidence that they can watch me going as quickly as I do and they can learn from me. I know it works because many riders comment on how when I pass them they learn a few things from what I do.
Plus what I can offer NESBA is helping select riders who ASK me for help on how to get around a certain track or body positioning etc. etc. I personally helped AJ Krause (of yes whom I sponsor at Speed Tech Racing), who dropped his times considerably prior his CCS race at Road America! He won I believe 6 amatuer races and placed in the top 5 4 other times. So yes track days does help and we take advantage of it. Plus I also finished in the top 5 in all my races as and expert against Jeff Wood, Corey West, Robert Jensen, Scott Greenwood & Brian Hall. Mind you I started in the 8th & 11th row in 2 races. Plus I finished 2nd in ASRA Sportbike class & 5th in ASRA Superbike class. Brian Hall my teammate also finished well at Road America. He placed 4th in ASRA Superbike & took home several first place expert finishes. By the way you all he also ran Thursdays NESBA track day too!
I have been racing for over 27 years of my life and roadracing for 13 yrs now and I have to say that doing track days helps me get faster. Where else can I think about my RIDING TECHNIQUE and learn to hone my skills. When your racing your racing and you apply what you already know. When your practicing you should be trying different things with your riding skills because your not so worried about the lap times if you screw up.
I wrote a press release for Speed Tech Racing after CCS Road America and it posted on Roadracing World. In there we thanked Garth for running a great organization for us to tune at prior to races. We will continue to take advantage of the track time that we can to gain ground on our competitors if we can.
I was very happy to see my fellow NESBIANS kick ass at Road America this year. Especially when I help some of those riders get faster during NESBA track days. Garth Cloyd has a great thing going & hope continued success happens in NESBA track day organizations.
So here is a comment to all you naysayers "If you can't beat em join em"

Yeah your right I've got to stop letting ASRA regulars stop putting dirty passes on me right! I need more practice! Time to ride the 50's in the lot again! Man your right I can't let that happen anymore!

Now I'm irritated.
Thanks for the motivation to go faster! See you at the next track!

qui tacet consentire videtur  :thumb:

so back to this pie thing... was that 2 scoops??

My grandma brought some ruhbarb back her last visit... I know my Mom's gonna throw together a pie or 3... was thinking a good french vanilla topper.  Do you double the size of the slice for the double scoop of IC?  or is the ration of IC to pie better with a standard slice?

Oh, and how was the cheesecake??

We had cheesecake for my wife's grandma's birthday celebration.  I had some for breakfast the next day.
