07-28-2017 Laguna Seca

Another good year at Laguna Seca. This was my 40th year of attending the races at Laguna Seca, I’m just addicted to Highway one down to ragged point. It is a beautiful road with a little of everything, lots turns and beautiful scenery along the California coast. The cool and moist coastal air is worth about 10 hp to your motorcycle, which is great when passing cars!

Highway one was closed due to landslides and a bridge collapsing with all the rain that happen this spring. So we headed to Coalinga for pizza at Fattie Alberts. We had not done this trip in several years trying to avoid the heat of the desert in the middle of July. We left early in the morning trying to arrive at Fatte Alberts when they open the 11 am. We use the wet T-shirt method to stay cool while traveling back to Laguna. The ride was was fantastic and the wet T-shirts kept us cool in the 108 degree temperature. When we got back to Greenfield everyone was talking about much cooler it felt and the temperature was 96!

Somewhere on the way up to the race track one of the leaf springs on the trailer broke and we swung by Salinas to pick up a couple of spares. When we got back to camp we swapped out the broken the spring and now we were ready to watch the racing.

It was a typical Laguna Seca where I ate too much, drank too much, and had a great time.

May 28, 2017

We went Fontana 5-28-17 for another track day. This was a great time for me as I set a new personal best lap time, as well as new top speed for me! Awsome! As we started to head for home when we couldn’t get the generator to start in the motorhome. Stop everything and break out the voltmeter and start test power flow and we found a broken power cable. A quick temporary fix and now we can head for home. We all had fun and our next adventure is Laguna Seca.

 

May 13, 2017

Our last Track Day was at Buttonwillow Raceway may 13, 2017. The usual group of Bill, Bud, Craig, and Dave were the riders.

The trip up and back went great with no mechanical issues with the trailer or the tow vehicle. That’s unusual not to have to fix something in route. We’ll take it!

The weather was perfect with the high for the day about 69 degrees with a 6-8 mph wind.

Bill, Bud, and Craig, fastest lap Bill by .74 of a second. Most miles Bill and Craig 151 miles. Fastest top speed Bud at 135 mph. Dave doesn’t record any data so we don’t know what he’s turning only that he goes faster than the rest of us.

We all had a great time and we going to Fontana on May the 28th to do all over again.

 

The shop will be closed Friday May 12 and Saturday May 13 as we will be at Buttonwillow Raceway.

 

Michelin RS series

Bill and Bud have been testing the new Michelin RS series tires and they are awesome. We give them a #1 rating.
Not to be out done Dunlop is coming out with a new series, Q3+, but we don’t have a release date at this time.

 

April 9, 2017 Big Willow Springs Raceway

Another great track day for us at Poway Motorcycle.  Everyone had a great time with all the bikes working good and no mechanical issues.

The first time out on the track it was very cold at 49° and we used that time to get her a heads up to speed. The next time out the temperature risen to about 62° and still no wind, this is awesome. This is where the fun begin and we got lots of laps and lots of dicing.

Bill and Lynn tied for the quickest lap of our group and Bill got the most miles 142, Bud and Craig were close behind.

Dave started racing this year with WERA in the novice class on his R6. While we were at Willow Springs he was racing at Fontana. He finished first place senior superbike middleweight novice and third place C superstock novice. Good job Dave!
Our next track day is May 13, 2017 at Buttonwillow Raceway. On that same weekend Dave racing at Las Vegas.

Our Willow Springs tack day was great and everyone had a good time. Dave was the fastest of the group on the R6 that Bud built for him. I tried to run him down on the front straight, but could only gain one bike length, man that thing is fast. Lynn was second, then Bill, Craig, and Bud.

We have been working on Dave’s R6 and with help from Marc from Factory Pro Tuning, the bike finally ran good. Marc worked his magic on the ECU and Dave was flying!!

Thanks Marc we could not have done it without your help!

 

Dave with his new found power was the fastest, with Lynn 2nd, Bud 3rd, Bill 4th, Craig 5th, and Os 6th. The times between Bill, Bud, and Craig were within .4 of a second.

Our vacation was great right up to the last day when I crashed and broke my right knee. It was my entire fault which makes it that more embarrassing. The bike was not hurt too bad and Bud and Craig lifted me on to bike and I drove it back to the base camp.

Well Rossi would say Ah f—k!

The doctors have always been able to screw me back together and they did so again this time. The recovery is going just fine and I started riding my street bike on December 6, 2015. Yea!! I hate four wheels.

 

 

09/26/2015

Poway Motorcycle is closing for vacation. The shop will be closed starting September 26, 2015, reopening October 6, 2015.

It is time again for our annual trip to Lagina Seca and the shop will be closed from July 11 through July the 20.

May 31st track day at Fontana was perfect weather with moderate wind. The wind was constant so it didn’t  make driving bad, it just slowed lap times down about a half a second. Ivan ran in the race group where he belongs, Craig, Bud, and I ran in the middle group. Craig set fast time of the three of us with me next and Bud third. Bud had top speed and I had the most laps. 160 miles. There was some different interpretation of the passing rule for entering turned 12. Craig got two meatball flags for breaking the passing rule, Bud and I each got one meatball flag. Dave didn’t ride as he was still healing from his broken collarbone from his Buttowillow crash. I had some brake fade throughout the day and we never fixed the issue while we were at the track. Hopefully we will get that repaired before the next event.

Coming up next for team Poway Motorcycle will be Laguna Seca.

The shop will be closing at 2:pm Saturday May 30 2015

It is time for our next track day At Auto Club Speedway Sunday May 31 2015

 

ButtonWillow Raceway

We did our first track-day of the year at Buttonwillow on Monday March 23rd. Team Poway went in full force this time, me, Bud, Craig, Dave, and Ivan. The weather was awesome at 74 degrees temperature, partly cloudy, and 8 mph winds. Ivan had the fastest lap time, Bud had the fastest top speed, and I had the most laps, 141 miles. Dave low-sided about 13:25 hours and rebroke his collar bone from his November street crash. Ah fuck! He was in good spirits and not in too much pain. The rest of us had a good time and came home in one piece.

The shop will be closed Tuesday March 24 2015
