Clipping from RRW.  Use the zoom button and it should be quite readable.

Thanks for posting up, and thanks to Freddie for wanting to share her story. I thought it was a great article too. I just wish we could get more people to understand how important it is.

Article in the August edition of RRW on Freddy's accident and the incredible benefits of running the airfence at the track. 

Thanks guys for really looking out for us and making safety a priority.

Sorry that I can't link to the article...I only have the hard copy.  Maybe someone with a RRW online subscription can post the link for everyone to look at...?

Hey guys looking for some advice here. I have a 05 636 that I need to change out the cam chain guides. I was wondering if anyone had experience with this engine and knows if I will need to pull the head off to swap them out? Thanks in advance!

Off line can lead to a lot of stuff.
Marbles, off camber, varied surface (a patch with better or less grip)
A wet line on a drying track.
But yes I was specifically referring to Kyle’s crash at North. The ECU comment also referred to the same incident. I have 3 reasons I am allowed to comment there.
1. Track rental = the right to comment on anything and everything at that track that day.

2. Kyle has made several self deprecating comments about where he went wrong and has had an exceptional attitude and humility about the fall.

3.  tons of pre planning, 4 days and tons of grease under my nails rebuilding said bike with Kyle.

The inside joke was missed, but the above is definitely funny.  I thought there was a joke going on, but 3am posting while half asleep at work makes it hard for me to pick up on humor sometimes.

Thanks guys.  I know about the marbles  less ideal track surfaces etc etc.  I was wondering if what was trying to be said was humor (so much is lost when there is no tone) or if being off line has a cooler temp because of less travel/friction from tires.  Where I am sure there can be a measurable temperature difference with the right extremely sophisticated scientific equipment, I didn't think it was enough to matter.  This is why i asked and you clarified that its correct that being offline doesn't so much effect temps due to the track itself, but other conditions. 

That being said, what was posted about why you want to be online is all great/perfect info for anyone questioning why the lines matters so much.

OMFG - I LOVE IT!

Dunham if Gary is at Barber this weekend please see if you can find out what the cost was. Not that I have the skills to do that, but just curious.

Being off line makes enough of an impact on tire temps?  I guess if your off line running though water yes, but how does being offline effect tire temps (other then the your likely slower and there for not putting the temps into them)    Either that or this was a joke directed at Kyle that I am missing?

In addition to the possibility of the track being dirty offline, I think a huge thing to consider is how being on the wrong line affects what you are doing on the motorcycle. For instance if you are wide at the apex then you have to lean the bike more after the apex to finish the turn. Either that or run off the track. That is exactly opposite of what you want to be doing. You want to be standing the bike up so you can accelerate after the apex. If you are leaning the bike more to finish the turn, and accelerating at the same time then bad things can happen.

Same entering a turn, if you are wide and trailing the brakes you are going to be leaning the bike harder and having to brake more.
