BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials 2010 Day 4

By Day 4 of the event I was starting to feel like a dehydrated Lobster under the broiler,Good God Man,it was starting to get to me.It was really hot by Day 4,and of the lack of humidity really didn`t help.But don`t get me wrong,I`m not complaining as 4 months ago or so I was down in S.Fl with the temps in the 90`s and the humidity right about the same,so i`ll take the dryness over the humidity anyday.
Day 4 (Wednesday)had a slightly slower track than Tuesday due to rain the night before that hadn`t really dried out properly,which was evident in the speeds(or lack thereof) that people were seeing on their time slips.I didn`t even go out on to the track untill late afternoon,having spent the morning in town doing a blog page.By the time I got back some of the water had evaporated enough that riding the 4 miles out across the salt to the pits wasn`t totally like riding through oatmeal,it was more like hard bread pudding.......
