Welcome. Banky2112. Look forward to meeting you in the pits. An seeing your bike. Just remember. 
@t PRE,  The CRs regulate any Riding of your property.
They Damn good too. But you can't be any geek off the street. You gotta be handy with the throttle, if you know what i mean, Earn your Bump.
(Pork chops voice) PRE Mount up!

Day 3 Post Operation: Pain is not terrible but sleeping is tough! My range of motion is less than pre operation but I am sure that will come with time and PT (which starts tomorrow). Tomorrow is exciting as we have Josiah and Elizabet going to K5 and 1st grade, Gabriel our 3rd grader we will home school until we get our finances right. I miss riding and miss my track family LOTS! Thank you everyone for being awesome :) Oh and our house is finally on the market, praying it sells FAST. Cheers!

I just usually don't get on the throttle that hard at full lean. All of this adds up to why people typically gap me out of turns.

Try a 300.  You can defy popular track theory and just keep the dang thing pinned 100% of the time.  (not really, but it feels that way).    getting on the throttle early on a 300 will upset the suspension, but its way more forgiving then  bigger bikes.  Another thing you learn to do out of necessity is carry your corner speed and place yourself well...   Power is not something you have and  you can see it just that much more clearly.

also, patience is something you learn.  You work hard to catch the person that passes you down the strait.  you finally catch them before the last turn just to watch them walk away and never be seen again.

honestly I think the 300 is fun in its own way and I would encourage anyone to spend a day on one to see how much rewarding it is to flog a small bike for everything its worth.   (still thinking hard to go back to my rsv4 next year as my primary bike)

Welcome back, Banky. We hope we see you out there a lot more.

I too aspired to be a Control Rider for many years...and PRE is probably the best place to be a CR, too! We are very selective so you can rest assured that if they have an orange shirt on they are a very skilled rider who is more than happy to assist anyone at anytime. The best thing you can do is to become a part of the PRE family by doing as many track days with us as possible. You will be noticed...I promise. Once we see that you are a regular rider with us, we get to know you, you make your way up through the ranks and you are already helping people even before you are a CR that's when you'd make it to the short list  ;)

Come say hello when you're out there and we'll help you reach that goal. Thanks!

Hey everyone.
I joined up a few years ago but have only ridden with PRE twice. First was the weekend of the first Air Fence fund at VIR south, I crashed LOL.
Next was a Road Atlanta event (Soooooo much fun.)

Figured I would re-introduce myself.

Names Travis, nickname is Banky (pronounced Bank-E)

I currently am a Intermediate rider with N2 and STT.
Been to VIR south, Road Atlanta, Roebling Roads Raceway, NCBike, Grattan Raceway.
Got a racing cert from Wera a few years back but only raced twice.

I recently contacted PRE because I wanted to know how to become a Control Rider/Coach.
So before anyone gets negative, they talked to me about it, I know it will be a long time until I would even be considered. Gotta start somewhere right.

I purchased a 2013 R1 brand new and started modding it and eventually it became a Track only bike.

Swaped 2013 frame for a 2009 Welded Braced Frame (WSBK clone)
Ohlins 25mm Karts
Ohlins TTX rear
Ohlins manual Dampner
Attack GP tripples
SBU rear linkage
SBU adjustable Link Rod
SBU flashed ECU
Attack rear sets
Dynojet quickshifter
EvolTech Clipons
Evoltech Brake guard
WoodCraft Frame sliders and Case covers
GP ignition timing cover
Graves through frame lower frame slider
Woodcraft Keyless start relay
Speedcell 4cell lithium battery
Fren tubo brake lines
Versah Pads
Brembo RCS19
Carbonin Bodywork
Akrapovic Full TI evo exhuast
CSF full racing radiator
Michelin Slicks
Spare wheel set with Michelin Rains
Fast Franks Quick Change Front and Rear Axle
Fast Franks captive rear brake caliper and wheel spacers

I am having a motor built (TD motor not a race motor) by KWS is South Carolina, should go from around 160hp to 185hp.

I just wanted to throw all this on here to show that I LOVE my bike. No it is not the fastest bike, but I enjoy riding it and I gel with it, have not crashed or had any scary moments on it yet.
I am an enthusiast and putting all the blood sweat and tears into my bike is worth more than being a few seconds faster with a newer machine.

Hope to start riding more with you guys and meeting some of you.

Thank you for the very detailed post!! #Humbled

I will pour back over those videos and work to pick up what you're laying down. I know I have a bad tendency to stay away from the outside 1/3 of the track during corner exit (likely fear of running wide if I had to guess).

I kind of thought that the off camber bite me but I for some odd reason was thinking that it was like turn 7 on the north course and the off camber was more toward the outside of the turn.

will be next season before I get the chance to make it back to VIR (Need more vacation from work!) but I'll definitely try to work on that corner exit line. So much to take in while we are out there and everything is whipping by (trying to keep my eyes up to slow things down).

Thanks again everyone!
