2019 wera gnf

wondering if any of you made it to the WERA GNF. It was a bit wet today but I did spot at least on ZX6R out there. At the start of one of the races it was raining really hard - third photo.

LOL, not sleeping but a blink! Have other pics with eyes open. I missed Backmarker in the Senior Superbike race, pants were wet, hiking boots what puddles of water inside them and was tired of the struggle to keep camera somewhat dry. Kala stalking another victory. This was a good race, he could pull her down the straight but she was quicker in the turns, she won by 0.033 I heard. A very good race.

@Backmarker sorry I missed you, have been shooting lots of events recently and didn't make it there till lunchtime Friday. I try and get by to say hi when you are there 11/30 and 12/1 Saturday was WET! Lots of rain and I got wet again, but it was fun. Good racing today (Sunday), dry track and lots of great racing. Fun part about being there is the best race often isn't for first but down the field where 2 to 5 bikes are racing close and hard. I'll post up some more pics, here are a couple from Saturday.

LOL this would be my track bike! My wife refuses to let me near the track on my motorcycle. I did ride my big scooter on a parade lap once - Honda Elite 110. It would do 51 mph, would get gapped by the field going down the front straight but as I dove into turn 1 at full speed I caught up and gapped the folks behind me on real motorcycles. :-)

I'm going to try and get out to see you and say hi.

Hopefully I'll get to my WERA GNF photos this week and post some more up. I left late August on a 5,300 mile ride thru Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho then up to Montana to Glacier National Park (Going to the Sun Road) across Montana to Minot ND then back home via Mitchell SD and Omaha Nebraska. non as I got back started shooting events. Finally finished up most of that and now working thru wife's project list.

Hey Tim! Iím still going, but I changed the day to 12/2 due to other holiday travel timings.

My ZX6R is #21 (intermediate) and Iíll be camped out with our silver F150 and silver Intech trailer.

I sure hope the rain forecast changes. I donít have any rains.

I'll be there both days. (Sat/Sun) And I too hope the weather is perfect.

I'll look for bike #21 coming past the tech line as I'll be coaching/working the weekend.

I'll be sure to get out and ride a couple sessions with you.

As well,, @PhotoAl is going to stop by... lets get a group (ZX6R) picture...

I'll be on my "B" bike... #760 Green/white/camo 13+ bodywork.

Cheers.

His bike is outstandingly clean and loaded with cool bits.

I should of had my camera. Sorry...

@PhotoAl ... dang it... I know your busy... I'll hit you up on the next trip..
