I know Joe Basim and Spina had a good weekend. What about the rest of the clan. if it wasn't a great weekend why. Was it bike set up or mechanical. We are interested to hear a report.

The gloom has lifted and I am finally able to talk about the travesty that was CMP.

I am on a new bike this year that I just have not been able to come to grips with and find a good setup. I made a host of changes which helped out on the practice day. I just needed to make it turn just a bit better. I jacked up the rear 3mm. It turned it into an u rideable bucking bronco. Every bump resulted in a chassis/head shake that made it impossible to get on the gas. Then every time I did get on the gas it would wheelie, electronics would set it down and start shaking its head. Rinse and repeat.

Needless to say I was 3-4 seconds off my best time and really embarrassed. I'm committed to not giving up on it and figuring it out, as painful as it may be.

Yep, finally! The last six months have been the most frustrating I have ever experienced with motorcycles. I wanted to walk away and not look back. I have the chassis and electronics sorted really well. Now it's up to me!
