Thanks guys!

Milford riders club is the track, a private facility north of Bridgeport Ct.

The jump is a blind uphill 40'-50' gap right after a corner which is what makes it difficult. You can't see the landing before you hit the lip so have no idea how to gauge it, now I know that its balls out everything I got on the 125 but I see guys on 450's blip the throttle and clear it.(but there 20 and weigh 140lbs and are on a 450, I am none of the above)

No helmet cam shots because I can't find the GO Pro......How the hell do I lose a camera?

buck and a quarters rule!

So the summer race break is over and September schedule is full!

Englishtown NJ is the on the 1st so I'm getting ready for that now.
9/15 is the Vet championship in Winchester NH
and then Tomahawk in WV on the 23rd.

Spent the last 3 days in Boston so I gained 10 lbs, hopefully lose that before Sat.
