So now what?

Here we are. Just a few weeks since the last track day. Now what am I supposed to do? My honey do list? House upgrades? The leaves are all done.

Can we make virtual track days? Just log on each Monday and tell stories of how much fun we had riding this weekend? This is my first season. I'm having withdrawl already!

Do I just need to play more Tourist Trophy?

Go sit on your bike in teh garage and make "Vroom, Vroom" Sounds

Play TT wearing full leathers and helmet (sans glove because you need the dexterity)

Should I just ride a skateboard down a hill in leathers. Then I can jump off to simulate a crash?

Work out.
Binge drink.
Move to SoCal.
Take up knitting.
Spend some quality time with the significant other.
Sell crack to little kids so you can put a dome over Autobahn North.

2 low sides in like 19 track days and I'm a crasher.
I just don't want to forget how it hurts. That keeps me right side up I hope.

I watched Ody (ken) take you out in less than 10' at AB south.
Therefore I am guessing Ron will do it even quicker with some type kungfu block pass/ brake check move.
