Very fast, fun track. Took a while to learn, but finally got the hang of it today. Can't wait to go back!!! Great seeing everyone again. It was a blast.

Now I'll have to watch this weekend's races to find out how much of a sissy I really am.

Oh, you will consider yourself a HUGE sissy

I had a great time.

Do CR's have names on the back of their shirt? Im trying to figure out who I was following out there. But all the CR's have "Follow Me" on the back of their Orange shirt. It was kinda hard to distinguish who was who.

I was the guy in the Blue CBR 600rr in the Beginner group.

CRs all have different colored bikes, different types of bikes and different leathers. Many of the CRs have names on the backs of their shirts as well, but those are next to impossible to read at speed since the wind blows the shirts up.

ALWAYS stop and talk to a CR after the session. Introduce yourself, get their name, and try to note their bike number. IF you want help, the best way to get it is to develop relationships. For example, I can fly past a member that I know, and remember later to tell them that they missed the line in T3, and their head needs to be down, butt more off... etc... if I recognized them. If I don't know who it is, I just worry about the member that I am working with at the moment.

You can get as much feedback as you like. But you do need to ask the person who saw you.

That was a ton of fun and I felt I was getting better so that's always good. It was great seeing everyone again and thanks for the Nitro Wink. Thanks again to all the CRs.

I'll see everyone at Putnam. I'm in for at least one day, most likely both pending funds.

I'm exhausted today.

Great time- great track!

Wink- thanks for the help with the few lines I was close enough to you to see where to go! LOL!

Sorry bout that last session, my wife wanted to leave cuz the kids were driving her nuts, and I was uber tired anyway, so thought it would probably be better if I sat it out. I told Heath I wasnt going out and to let you know, so hopefully the message was conveyed to ya! Thanks again!

I had a great time on Monday. What an awesome track! Yeah, it did take a while to learn the track regarding which gear to be in to get the maximum out of the straights in my 600... Last two sessions were great (besides the red flag).
