New guy from STL

Hello everyone! I'm a track junkie from St. Louis. I'm also a Board Member with midwestcaferacing.com. I joined partially to pimp out our trackdays and racing, partially because I'm thinking about racing at BFR and mainly because I like to talk about motorcycles.
I've been riding for about 2.5 years. I have a GSXR600 for the street and a SV650 for the track. I've been to Road America with STT, BFR with Motovid and STAR School, Heartland Park, Putnam Park and Gateway Motorsports Park all with MCRA. Looking forward to hitting ACC in the future.

Gateway opened back up late last year. We have an I-70 Series this year with Heartland Park Topeka, Gateway Motorsports Park and Putnam Park. Next year we're wanting to add Autobohn.

I was riding back from AR and came across a guy on an GS500....that I could barely keep up with on my Duc. It was his girlfriend's bike, he said he normally piloted an R1. He was a regular track guy from down there, and was nice enough to let me follow him through some of the best roads down there. Nice people down in STL

Hiya!

Be sure to introduce yourself at the next MotoVid track day.
I would say I'm the only CR with long hair, but that's not true cuz there are guys with longer hair than me, so I will say I'm the only CR with boobies

Hope to see ya on the 30th

CR's with boobies rule!
I usually learn a track within the first day. But, I still can't remember Blackhawk. I'll definitely get with you the next time I'm up there
