finally we went back to the circuit for the last ride before the season opening race this weekend at Tsukuba International Circuit. i got a new set of tyres so i really wanted to go below 1min4sec which i never had. and then what?
i got 1min3.280sec!!!! with new tyre, everythig went good. now i can feel the benefit of the andrews#1 camshaft. xr1000 is running faster at every part of the track. i'm very happy but the brake is becoming the bottleneck... squeezing so hard. i don't know if my right arm can last one race?????? Harley Davidson's stock brake... definitely not for racing.
just to see how far i got with the front tyre... my front tyre was not really holding the ground and i wasnt sure if it was because of me or tyre. so i decided to blame on the tyre and ordered a new set. now i can see the different between new and the accused one. i will go to the track one more time before the race in May. if my lap time doesnt improve, i will be blaming on suspention... or brakes...
