1st of all I want to thank God for bringing me home in 1 piece and the bike too..
Now HUGH thanks to Craig, Greg, CLSB, and NESBA for the SED day and all the help....
Now for the day,
The weather was funky looking @ 1st but it shaped up well....
I came to the day not knowing what was going to happen, wondering how my skills would be seeing that this was my 5th trackday and to say the least, I have a long long ways to go...... but Im still interested in getting better
Starting with the trackwalk...30 people are not really alot but when we were on the trackwalk i feel that Brian had to deal with people walking slow, talking, kids, peoples grandmas, the whole nine....to say the least he had his hands full...and he did well in my eyes...i really didnt want to make more problems so i just took my trackmap and took as many notes as possible...
Lord behold, a CR....asked me what i was thinking...damn i forget his name. (older guy, nicely mannered, about 5'9", he was pitted across from Chad...sorry for not remembering your name....russian/polish/german last name....large hands like george [sry george]) He walked & talked the whole track with me and helped with my understanding and lines
Putnam is truly a fast and FLOWING track....I was not even close to getting all the turns down but I was making progress throughout the day...
George.....and all those that i cant remember names
The feedback was about the same overall...
Missing apexes, Not using all the track in T1, Body Position (not much though), Fudge'n up T7, not setting up passes well, not staying in the powerband of the bike, scrubbing off to much speed.......and i know i probally was told much more than that, but all and all it was good and i did make improvements
personally im not happy with myself and i think i should be further along then what i am now. but either way im still looking forward to goin smoother. some say i pretty well off for a 5 time'r
i need more comfortable leathers for sure.....i really think mine are still restrictive, but then again ive only worn them 5 or 6 times....
But i would really suggest that anyone looking to fix some bad habits that they have on the track or in their riding go to a Nesba SED, IMHO
Thanks again & Until my next trackday,
p.s. sorry i missed kim
and Greg and Blume are funny at the dinner table
