We're back. Great day. a bunch of run offs. Only 3 crashes all day. Nobody went for a ambulance ride and all the bikes were still able to back on the track. That's a good day

Soooooooo soooooooooooooore.

Honestly.. awesome day though. Improved my previous best by more than a second and had an awesome time trying to keep up with some of you A guys.

Oh and uh.. runoffs? What? Where? Glad most everyone was able to keep it up instead of spilling. I think we did a lot better this time avoiding crashes an' shiet, so congrats to everyone.

Thanks for putting this together, Ken. Like Kim said, we need to do moooooore. You da man, buddy.. even if you did flee to the pits to escape my wrath when I coincidentally ended up behind you.

right on Ken,

thanks for having us- had a great time; kudos on the overall track day organization. Things went smooth, and of course it helps when you have a great group of riders like CLSB.

we look forward to the upcoming event(s)

I will have the content posted shortly. Once published, I will update the forum with the links.

Ouch..I've never been sore after a track day before

Had a great time. I really needed this to work the cobwebs out and test the new brakes (Holy Sh#%@, these are good). I'll be working on actually making my bodywork stick together better and paint the yellow on the front.

Which control rider went off the track in turn 6, passing 2 great sounding V-twin motorcycles? I was following a 916 coming up to T6 and a CR blew past us both, and kept going straight. Since I didn't see a bike down or yellow the next lap, I think he kept it upright. Also, whoever I was following, DON'T LOOK! I saw ya turning your head, thinking to myself...don't look! I think it was an afternoon session, probably the first one.

I'm pretty happy with the way I did considering it was my first ever track day, and on a new bike. My times started out at about 1:43 and dropped to 1:35 by the last session. After seeing some of Jack's pics, it looks like I have ALOT of room for improvement, especially on cornering speeds. I have a good amount of lean angle left to go.

It was Friggin AWESOME! Can't wait till the June 26th NESBA day.

Mike
