OMG stop the freaking wind

So I spent today at Thunderhill with the Keigwin's Intermediate school trying to work on my slow lap times and improve my overall comfort level. Unfortunately we had 20-30 *GUSTY* winds, and that was playing havoc with me - almost pushing me off the track. And on corner exit when I opened the throttle wind gusts would blow across my open carbs and create a small vacuum, over-richening the mixture and causing the bike to lug.

No fun. I only did a reasonable (not good) lap time in the last session of the day, after the wind had died down a bit. More hopes for tomorrow which has a forecast of no wind.
