I figure there should be plenty of room since you will be at work all day. It should be a nice day and we won't have to worry about getting spoken to about the jag off on the motard leaving 20 ft black marks on the concrete.

Have fun everyone, it's probably best I take an extra day off before heading to RA anyways

I was at work when you text me James. I will look once I get home around 4pm as the trailer is still in our driveway.

I'm sure somebody has it, I just have to figure out who. If she didn't grab maybe Casper or the Dunlop guy did.

I truly thought I was going coo-coo. I stood there with my mouth open after we packed up and was like, how the heck did Steve's stand get here when I only remember taking my front and rear stand out of the trailer!?!?
So, I packed it and it's hanging on the Nice-Raxx on the wall of our trailer.

Also found a can of helmet spray, is that yours too????? It was on the table

Thats mine too. I got in a rush to get out before the next session started. Thanks for grabbing it, even if it was an accident.

It was my first day @ BHF. Had a blast. New (to me) bike and new track, so I bumped myself down to Novice. About mid day I found the line the F4i liked, and ran super smooth after that. Last two sessions I worked on shifting (was running 3rd gear and shifting for the straight) and picked up a bunch of speed. I need to work on setting the suspension a little bit, but other than that the Pi bike is solid. It's way too easy to wheelie out of T7. Thanks Dani for toting me and my bike around. It made the weekend simple and fun. Oh, and we found a place with a Tuesday special of $.35 wings and $1 drafts.

Awesome frikkin day!!!

I wasn't suppose to CR but got asked at the last minute....then I said fuck it....I'm gonna double up and CR and play.....holy cow!!!

My best and fastest track day yet.....thanks to Casper for towing me around.....I know what turns I need to work on with my exit speed. But learned I new line right b/w 2 and 3 and a new line into 5.....all kinds of fun!!!!

I worked with Dani and Dave, hopefully I helped them Worked witha bunch of other people too.....tried showing them hte new line I learned into 3. Novice was full....something like 25 new people to that track!!

There were 3 Harley XR1200's....they were awesome to watch and follow!

Can't wait to go back and work on my stuff!!!!!

I'm still giddy now!!!!!

James - I got your helmet stuff! Sorry about your get off

Nick - Glad you had a great day, you were smiling from ear to ear.

Dani - I think you said ti was your best track day to date as well!!!

Dave - I know you were learning the bike but you were smiling as well

yup great track day,
i stayed for the last session even
tried out the lap timer, but didn't put in the right amount of laps
i'm much faster than i thought and my times where getting better as the day went on
i feel i can go faster, but i don't trust myself or the bike yet
i also need to work on my late braking

what is lid spray ?

i want to drink, but only to kill a certain few brain cells and i don't care how many i have to take out to get to them.
