makes a big difference at Blackhawk !
Turn 4. This is a tricky turn...it's slightly banked, and there's a nasty dip at
the entrance that's put a few guys on their head. Schoeberle flips the R6 over
faster and further then
anyone through here !
Did You Like The Bike ??
" The power is amazing, I can spin the tire with the throttle. It
just pulls super hard ! I never could do
that with my ' 97 GSXR 750. ...
...Coming out of the last corner leading out onto the straight a way every
lap it was doing a slide, hook, slide. If we can tune that out of the
suspension and get a calm day,
I'll go for the overall lap record !! "
Was It Out There...Was The Wind A Problem ??
Yeah, I could have gone a lot faster if it wasn't for the wind.... it was
bike all over the racetrack. It affected braking distances, but mostly the
side winds going through the corners were a problem.
Blackhawk Farms is a medium
physical track. There's definitely a certain flow to it, but it's real
hard acceleration followed by ultra hard braking.
has really beat up the track, so it's rough in most corners... suspension is
super critical. There's no way to completely level the bumps at Blackhawk.
The trick is to strike the best compromise of soaking up the bumps without
sacrificing braking performance, ground clearance and turning speed.
It takes a lot of extra power to pass an equal rider on Blackhawk's 2
short straights. The track gets raced on a lot, so most of the locals are
fast as hell here. A straightaway pass requires a better than average
drive off the turn and that means perfect throttle control is a must
!! Even minor carburetion hiccups will affect lap times noticeably,
and cause the rider to use extra energy riding around the
