Just having fun and enjoying myself along with others. Also continue to work on the basic stuff to become faster yet smooth.

And keep the rubber side down and not crash at all...:-)

He was okay on the track at Jennings!

Hmm, have fun, finally get that bump to I in Nesba, 1:30 at blackhawk so I can have a snowball chance in hell of not get too destroyed while racing. Hmm, maybe join/start an SV endurance team. Seem to have a lot of them around here.

My goal is just to have a good time. Stop worring about lap times and enjoy the ride.

Learn to keep a good smooth line around the track. Being bumped to I would really rock, too. Oh, and to pass Grover on the front straight again.... and again.... and again.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Hey, no smack talking during work hours I don't check the board enough during the day.

If by 'corners' you mean 'apex of turn 1'

My goal is to get out and learn how to avoid crazy drivers on the streets. Also, ride more often and going to the track.

No, the get off was about the 2 1/2 marker on the straight.
I just quit sliding parallel to the second cornerworker station. A T1 get off would have been easier on my body since I wouldn't have had so far to fall!
