Great weekend, even with the rain. Sorry this is longer than 3 sentences for all the ADD people on here
First off HUGE thanks to Greg and Fred for picking me up, giving me a ride down, putting up with my needy ass and bringing me back…shiny side up
Hope you guys had as much funs as I did!!! I missed Putnam!
Second HUGE thanks to Turn One Racing…..they set my suspension up and they rock!! I called them before hand to make sure they can do a 07 600rr cuz we all know I was 0 for 6 in getting it done
(and yes there is a special tool for this bike) Marshall was great, and what a funny guy
loved your Beginner talk
If he wants to chime in and say what he did great cuz yeah I have no clue!
And WOW, holy new bike batman, my bike is smooth as butter going through the turns, funny how you are just “used” to however your bike rode before. I didn’t get the suspension done till Sunday so I only got to test it out for a few sessions but noticed a BIG difference!!!
Thirdly another HUGE thanks to Kim, for towing me around, showing me some great lines and getting me just a little bit faster and out of my comfort zone. I just <3 riding with you. It makes it so much easier to learn from someone when you have put thousands of miles on with them on the street and track, she knows how I ride and I know how she rides. I haven’t been to Putnam in a few years so Saturday afternoon once it dried up she took me out and showed me the lines, after a lap or 2 I had em down. She then saw what turns I was slower in, told me what turns they were and here is what we are going to do next. And then we did exactly what she said in the next session
I came off that session and asked her, hey did you back off at all on turn 6/7 cuz I was right behind her and did not feel out of my comfort zone. She said she didn’t so I know I picked up the pace there, she is a GREAT CR!!! Then we started passing people while it was still damp out
but I was like ok…I trust Kim and if she can do it…I can too
It was so much fun. Sunday afternoon was even better, hopefully I got some good video.
Then Greg towing me around
, another HUGE thanks
For an entire lap he was constantly tapping his tail….I’m telling myself in my helmet….dude I am following you
I didn’t know he meant follow him closer
I know I know…I just need to go faster
one of these days….one of these days
As always love riding with Greg as well, he knows how to push me just a little bit more than what I’m use too.
Great seeing everyone else and meeting a few new people, Brian803, nice to put a face to the board name, then the regulars like Kim, Nolan, Jeff, Jordan, Ron….sorry if I missed ya!
I still gotta get some video footage put together from ACC then I will put the footage together I got from this past weekend.
Greg Kotlinski the bunny killer
Sometimes the road trip is the most fun
