TRANSPONDERS!!!!!!!!
« on: April 27, 2003, 07:29:34 pm »
For you anxious ones, I saw MANY little yellow transponders at Road America today  :D  

Soooo, racers.....how were they? Could you get lap times?

Anyone got measurements? Like hole dia and seperation? Did they supply bolts/nuts with that bracket? Did you have to buy the bracket?

    Not meaning to sound like Bill at the racer meetings over the weekend, but they are TRANSMITTERS not transponders ;D! LOL

    The dimension between the 2 slots is 3 3/32" and they are made for 1/4" or 6mm bolts (a 1/2" diameter washer will fit under the head of the bolt without hitting the edge of the bracket). Tech told me they prefer to have the bolt pattern from side to side on the bike. I mounted mine front to back because the bracket seemed to spread open if I had it the other way. Either way make sure and have some zip-ties with you because you still should strap the thing into the bracket for extra hold. If you lose the thing (while racing or otherwise) you have to pay them $250 for it! If you forget to turn it in before you leave the event you pay $250 plus a $100 fine!

So you can understand how important it is to return the transponder, Stumpy hit the wall at the kink going about 140mph Sunday and after he got up a-ok, the first thing he yelled was "My transponder's gone!!!!"  He found it , and so now that $350 bill is not an issue  ;).  I'll let Stumpy tell about his encounter with the air fence so I don't get called "lips" or "mouth" or "yackadackyl" or anything.   ;D

Yeah, everyone says, "go down to the kink" that should be a great place to get photos....  ;D

Sometimes I think I'm a magnet. :)  The corner worker asked me why I pushed him down. :)

Someone asked me later if I had got hit, I guess the anouncer said something about a photographer getting hit. Hope he was talking about me, because I was fine--hope no one else got hurt.

When you expanded the word you spelled p o o n in transponder.  

p0on = poon

Ya I tried takin' the SuperBike Ike School this weekend. In the GTU I was Takin your lines but to no avail I went off the track then in the GP, I figure you'd slow it down a little and just let me learn but I guess not ; Whats a Stumpy to do......O.K. I'll do like you said and slow it down a bit...I had sooooo much fun though ;)      Sorry Ike I like Dave's School better. MUCH, MUCH Safer!! 8)
