AFM 2018 Round 4 at Thunderhill Raceway

This round brought higher temperatures and increased grip, and a more competitive field than ever before.

A bad crash in Saturday practice was a major setback for me, but thanks to the help of the vendors and other racers, I was able to get the bike back up and running JUST in time for the races!

AFM 2018 Round 3 at Thunderhill Raceway

This round was filled with mechanical and weather drama, but with a “Take this one step at a time” mentality, I was able to get the bike running in top shape for the races (and incredible weather) on Sunday.

Rain on Friday and Saturday hampered practice efforts, but Sunday brought temperatures in the 90s, perfect for racing motorcycles all-out!

AFM 2018 Round 2 at Buttonwillow Raceway

This round was relatively uneventful. I was struggling with rear tire traction, which made it difficult to drive my laptimes down to my 1:55 goal.

Despite that, the battles were more intense than ever, with lots of overtaking.

So yes, I should get out more and try some Google cloud services maybe. Next week, I swear.

In the meantime, why would you want to host your static page on Route53? Well, it’s easy enough, albeit with the usual AWS idiosyncracies. I was able to reserve this domain for just 11 bucks a year, so the price is right.
