My Free Nesba Track Day at Putnam.

Thanks a lot CLSB guys and NESBA guys for the free trackday,
What a blast.

Sunday was a great day to ride, Putnam is such a grippy, fun, zoomy track, not to mention .. its just a nice facility.

For the first time I was finally able to Drag a Knee and skuff up my sliders.

After having a couple of (remember the track sessions) I
asked one of the control riders (Carol Drucker) to help me with my lines in a couple of series of turns. WOW, Let me tell you, she is one SMOOTH zoomy rider...
When the session was over I was just bowled over by
1, how smooth and Zoomy it was following her and
2, how much different the whole track seemed then the session before.
(Plus ya gotta love someone that gives you a big hug when you get it right )

I got to meet up with JimGofast and JeffwithaJ as well as met Kruz (nice camera setup), Jack was on the Track doing some CR'ing and helped me get around some of the slower group.

Someone across the way from me was on his beginner intro day, It was fun kind of watching someone else get addicted... He came over a few times and asked about stuff.. It was really nice being able to give back the same treatment others had given me.

It was a really nice Day, all the way up until the last session when the rain started coming down in buckets and we packed up.

I'm Pooped, sore and Happy,

Thanks to everyone for such a great weekend.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
