Funny pic!

There were so many folks doing that in the AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) races, especially the National ones. They would literally pick a class nobody was running, then set up a bike for that class. By damn, they can then say when they are 80+ years old that they were a National champion. Maybe that will get them laid by one of the old wrinkled grannies in the old folks home  😛

Here's an interesting set of graphs from today's skunk works session. These compare similar Suzuki SV builds to my Yamaha. Due to club racing superbike rules package these are all on stock bore even tho the SV's are allowed a 2mm overbore if they were racing in MotoAmerica. The Yamaha's aren't  allowed an overbore in either to keep things closer. 

The yellow trace is my builders personal 2nd Gen SV race bike. It has bored throttle bodies, ported head, shaved gaskets, lightened flywheel, cams, stock bore, running 91 pump gas. This was previously the stud on the superbike grid.

The blue trace is my race partners 1st Gen SV. It has massive flat slide carbs, ported head, cams, shaved gaskets and running  E85 for fuel (don't get me started). He needs to re-jet a little to get fueling correct between 9,000 and 10,000rpm.

The green trace is my previously posted final tuned run. 

Several ways to get to the same point on a graph.  Yamaha has a distinct edge in mid-range and no longer falls over at high rpm with the intake work vs stock.  And I'm pretty sure there's some cheater parts in those old SV's like Hayabusa or JE pistons, the classic "I don't know what's in there" or "it must been like that when I got it", lol, whatever.

Either way there's 2 butt hurt Suzuki guys now.

That's some serious giddyup in the lightweight/twins class, that's middleweight speed!

So far, so good. Friday was a glorious day. Sunny and warm(ish). I had some fun on it in morning practice before we got the bike dialed in in the afternoon for Tony to run at Road America. Makes a crap ton of power, suspension spot on, new Dunlop spec tires are awesome after getting pressure and temperature dialed in. There was an unnamed pro from the MotoAmerica Twins Cup points chase here testing to run against in practice. Not bad, very happy with our situation.

Saturday is 40 degrees, rainy and 30 mph winds, grrate... Tony put the bike on the podium in the trophy dash, said he's never been so happy on a bike, good news. But he nearly shagged a brand new rear rain tire as the track dried between rain cells during the race.

I worked as a corner captain for the day since they were short of volunteer track workers due to weather, go figure.  During lunch break I found out that out that our competitors had got my bike ready for Tony (busy racing his own bikes) to race in the trophy dash for me since I was busy working a corner. SOLID!! Overall a perfect day.

Tomorrow who knows, forecast is for armagedon, we'll see. I'm scheduled to run the Formula 40 (old guy) race on it as set up for Tony. Should be a fun challenge. We'll see if I can get a 'trophy', lol.

All in all a great outing. Got it dialed in spot on for Tony. Looking forward to Road America in 2 weeks! 

Get off the couch and stop daydreaming your life away!

Blue Line Racing.

Should have my head examined. 37 deg air temp, 23 deg wind chill, winds gusting to 35 mph, raining like a bastard now, snowed this morning.

Aaand I'm about to go out for my race.

Good times!

Edit; it's snowing again, hahaha

Double edit; 3rd place in F40 snowcross, I  get a trophy to cuddle.
