Sweet. It's the pic in your avatar that did it I bet. They saw you can ride while waving to the crowd with your toes, and said, "we need this guy"!!

You will discover that trackdays will become work now. But I can honestly say that it is rewarding in its own regard helping people improve in their riding ability. Just remember that everybody has to ride their own motorcycle. Try not to push novice riders too much and real them back in when they get too excited. I'm still having a bit of a tough time from last weekend when an older fellow crashed chasing me. He made the wrong decision but I feel like I was taking him around too fast for his experience level. He really improved throughout the day and I thought for sure he was ready to pick up the pace a little. My point is try not to beat yourself up about shit like this. I've been coaching for 8 or 9 years now and for some reason I let this one get to me.

Congrats though. It's an honorable position to hold.

thanks for the advice, & i remember hearing bits & pieces of that when you were telling fred, i was just packing up the trailer. I'm sure i'll find out what everyone means when they say its "work" now, but i wish my paying job was gonna be as much fun

Very good info Grasshoper. . I had the same thing happen on my 2nd day as a CR and it bothered me quite a bit. Learning how to slow down once you've been running the A-pace for a few years is harder than it seems.

Jeff - the "work" part is discovered the day after a track weekend. It when you realize how many more muscles you're using than before. Due to holding exaggerated body position to show the new riders even though your pace doesn't warrant it. The other part is mental trying to keep your situational awareness while still riding and watching EVERYBODY. You also don't have many options for taking a session off unless it's medically unsafe.

We're there for the betterment of the members, and if we get to ride some A-group sessions, that's a bonus. Seeing others improve, and the smiles on their face, is where our payment comes from. Well worth the "work"

See ya out there. :
