Yep, Pete's really railin' out there... looking very comfortable. Plus today, I spent some time sitting with the cornerworker in 3a/4 watching "B" and "A" - there has been a LOT of improvement in the "B" group. :helmet

Next year should be MOST interesting! Ken, when will we see you out there again???

Kim i honestly don't know..since i fractured my hip in a sexual accident the doc's say if i ever go down riding...i could have some problems, so if its something i learned its better to make love slow then wild and fast and there always tomorrow to do it again..OH WAIT...i thought you meant something else:evil



nahh actually i didnt think i was gonna have my forks back in time..let alone track riding...so it kinda got messed up.
but i dont know...soon i guess.
if not next year...but i REALLY got to get a small track bike for next year..i can do so MUCH more but this heavy 9r...makes it tuff to get into lower track times.
for me anyway...but HEY who knows...next year might be exciting for me?:evil

I saw him sitting with Anna, Brian, et al when we left (John was in a hurry to get home, so my good-bye's were truncated) - didn't notice anything immediately wrong (his bike was loaded into the trailer already) - he didn't appear hurt or anything.

What happened?????

No shit...you almost ran us down in the van! We all thought you were kidding when you blew past us in the pits at 40 mph.

I've got a few pics of Allen's bike, it's totaled. I'll post pics later with his permission. He's alright, probably a little tight today.

Congrats Pete and Kim....Kim was looking real smooth out there in I. Pete, guess I'll have to wait until NEXT YEAR to dice it up with you...:D

Just think Pete....you're missing your chance to fullfill your annual warm-up lap crash at Putnam.

LOL - whats is normally an almost-two-hour ride for us took a mere 1:30 going home... John wanted to watch something on TV and I guess I was just taking too long working my way down the line saying my "goodbyes".:rolleyes

I can't complain, tho... if it wasn't for him I very much doubt I'd be able to go racing or do track days at all. He never complains about fixing stuff when I crash, taking days off work, spending so many of our weekends at the track or sleeping in the van - and I NEVER have to worry about the bike being less than 100% safe.
