I can't believe nobody has started this yet... so I will.

What a friggin' AWESOME day!!!!!!!

Mike, Billy - you guys have got it pretty damn well dialed-in. I hope LVO and I will be able to make it to your next BHF event.

Kim,

From Billy and I, thank you for the accolades and feedback. Humbly speaking, it means a lot. Of course, its always good to see old friends back in the pits and more of the CLSB crew!

Considering the size of the event, we too felt the day went pretty good. Zero transports, Zero Red Flags and Zero injuries during a complete sellout event. This was the end result of a rock solid instructor, control rider team we put together for 2010. They really worked their butts off yesterday keeping everyone safe and tight transitions to deliver the most seat time.

It was very cool to see the Racer Cafe riders and ChiVinMoto vintage group on course, which will make for some very cool video.

Look forward to seeing you out at an upcoming event!

best,
michael

Wow is right! Couldn't have asked for an all around better day...super nice weather, hanging with good friends and tearing up an awesome track, LOVE it!

This was my third time at Blackhawk and all with Motovid so far. I have to say I'm still very impressed with how well organized these events are. Looking forward to many more this year.

Oh and congrats to Bruce on the "A" bump.

What a great day! Super smooth, well, except for the part where my bike decided to leak fuel over the motor and die... but that led to going out on a gixxer for the first time and it was a blast!

Thanks to CR Mark on the Triumph 675 for the help!

AWESOME DAY!!!

Weather was perfect, people were great, CR's were awesome Couldn't ask for a better day!

This was my first time back to Blackhawk since I got my suspension done so I was excited I just <3 this track.

Huge thanks to Marshall AGAIN, this bike is soooo smooth going through turns now.

So EVERY yes EVERY session rocked for me yesterday!! This is what track is all about!!! I improved throughout every session. This was the first time I ran a laptimer at a track day, and it was interesting. I didn't really care what laptimes I was running but I wanted to see if I was improving as the day went on.

Thanks to Casper and Karl for towing me around, even though we got held up in traffic a few times I was still cutting around a second off each session. Now I would love to know what I was running last year yeah ok...prolly not

I got to work a lot on passing as well. I never passed between turn 5 and 6 until yesterday, the straight isn't that long (to me) and we all know I coast and brake early so Bruce (Bad Company) gave me some word of advice and the next session I passed someone. I turn in late to turn 5 anyway thanks to Bfly showing me an awesome line last year, and it helped immensly with the passing. I started passing people in that turn in almost every session...I was like a lil kid on Xmas, I cuoldn't wait to come around again and pass more people there

Congrats to Bruce on the "A" bump, and the lil off roading you did too. Saw some funny stuff too, Chuck stuffing Samal, Samal stuffing me Will have to see what I have on video

Anyway, just an awesome day all around.

Good times as usual the CLSB crew was in full force. I'm glad everyone had a great time and also a safe time. I really enjoyed working with the vintage guys as alot of them had huge smiles on there face after the first session. Mike and Billy have Motovid dialed in perfectly. Even with 15 min sessions every session was like clockwork. Glad to be part of the Motovid team.


BTW did anyone see the chick flash there boobs on 90 heading home ???

I hope these kind of track days become the norm for me. First Jennings and now BHF with a good CLSB showing. It's just more fun to blast around with friends.

If you ride like there's no tomorrow, today will be a BLAST!
