Talking Hot in Alabama !!!

103 F at Barber Motorsports Park at 3 pm and temps still climbing !!!. Weather channel says it "feels" like 106...I believe that!!!!
5 full sessions and Carl and I decided to take a break...back tomorrow morning when temps will be back down a bit (at least in the morning).

The MV Agusta Pits at Barber. Carl's Veltrat and my Lola...2 nice SPRs.
We may not be the fastest riders out there, but we look good!!!

Will try for some better pics tomorrow...and no comments on my form fitted underarmor revealing the tumor I've been growing in my gut....

Glad to see that you guys had fun. Wish I could of been there. I did go and do a 2.5 mile run today in the middle of the afternoon since you were braving the heat.

103!
Are the tire warmers there to keep the tires cool?

Just a suggestion here - I'm sure that Carl is well aware there is a more fashionable method of wearing handkerchiefs on the noggin.

How's Lola first time up Ed?

I hope she will look like your wife!!!! No umbrella girls at Barber for us, unfortunately.

Dave, Lola did not disappoint. Very happy with her. I have not touched a clicker on the suspension and she turns and handles just as well as I had hoped. Engine and transmission is flawless....should have put the bigger rear sprocket on. Geared a bit tall, but it's OK !!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks Ed.

When you get time, maybe after you're back home, would you mind snapping a couple of shots of your tires for me? Interested in how these extreme temps effecting are them. That would be much appreciated.
Dave.
