Track Days Will Never Be The Same

We all know that change is always right around the corner, there are far too many variables in life to know exactly what is going to happen.  That’s the joy in it.  As the track season has begun this year so has the burden of owning a trailer that is large enough to haul more than just your own bike.   When two of my friends and I bought a 20′ trailer, we only planned on carrying our 3 bikes, all of our stuff, and maybe 1 extra bike.

The only problem has been that over the past two years of owning this trailer, more and more people seem to need a ride to the track.   Well this just makes it more of a hassle for us to get everyone’s stuff and make sure everyone has all they need.  Not to mention hotel rooms get a little crowded at 6 people.

So, we finally decided to sell the big trailer and it just so happened that my brother-in-law was looking for one to carry around a 1966 Nova he is restoring.  So, this past weekend, I drove to Skaneateles, New York to deliver his new to him trailer.   In case you have never been there, it is in the country and so when I sent this picture to my buddies, their response was, “Wow, you really did take her to a farm upstate.  Looks like she’ll have plenty of room to run around.”

Now that the trailer is gone and the next track day is only 2 weeks away, we are all trying to figure out the best way for us to get there.   So it looks like we’ll be back to the car caravan where everyone tows their own bike and we all have hours of fun on the CB’s.

Here at EXAIR change is happening every day.   We are constantly improving processes, designing new products, or figuring out ways to get information to and from our customers faster and easier.  We’re always looking for a good challenge to promote thinking outside of the box also.  So if you have any questions on your compressed air application then give a call, email, fax, chat or visit.

Weekend Warriors

I know everyone has that list (that hangs somewhere in your house or in your head) of things that need to get done.  Something that has jumped to the top of my list to get done this weekend is installing an electronic brake controller on my brother’s 2009 Chevy Silverado.  Along with race prepping the bike for the final track day of the year.  (It’s ok if you cry.  It’s a sad time of year when we don’t get to ride anymore.)

While I am no stranger to electronics in vehicles through my experience as a MECP Installer, I am always a little hesitant to deal with the electronics which handle the brakes for the vehicle.  So I checked out all the installation instructions and wiring diagrams and found an easy “How To” video that will help me to install the unit.

Then once the unit is installed I will have to test drive with the race trailer empty just to ensure the trailer brakes are in fact working and something like below doesn’t happen.

As long as everything is good then next weekend my friends and I will be on our last trip to Putnam for the year and we will hopefully all be coming back with our MCRA Race License.
