Thunderbolt 8/16/09

Taken using an Oregon Scientific ATC5K camera. It came with a helmet mount, but I’m sure it wasn't meant for 100mph+ speeds.
So, thought it would be better to mounted it on the right side of the frame below the gas tank (see pic below), hence the 90’ angle image rotation.

Sorry, the sound on the camera was turned off, and I didn’t bother checking before recording. It would have been sweet to hear those Zards in action, and didn’t have time to listen to the audioswap songs offered on youtube...

Here’s maxpr1 riding – part 1

There were no more room in group 2, so we rode group 1.
It was fun riding, but caught up to traffic a few times. Luckily maxpr1 is really good at passing everyone, so he opened the way and I followed!!

Enjoy!!

Well it seems as though we did ok! I remember going much faster....:rolleyes:
The track did seem like a parking lot at times and it seemed as though follow the leader was the norm. I guess that's what happens in group 1 :(

Me too! Every time I watch track videos...
Also after leaving the track in a car, I always lean on the first few turns :)

We really were going fast! Once you passed all the slow riders, the pace was pretty good!
The videos seem like we were going slow, but remember that on the long straight, we were going at least 120pmh+ but in the videos, it seems like we were going 60!!

Next time, I'll sign up to group 2 early (before they sell out).
