Thanks Ken and everyone else involved.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

thanks again, guys thank you, it helps getting you guys to fill the track dates, and get this all moving since i spent a few grand this year in getting business insurance for myself to do these track days for us...theres more then just renting out the track that i have to worry about when it comes to putting these things on, and also like i said...you guys doing such a good job by the rules of the track..make it easy on me too.

thank you all.

Great time!! And a big thanks to my morning pit crew Jeff, and to John with a Harley O-ring, Taz with spare pucks, Ken and his court of merri men and woman. A special thanks to the groundskeepers for trimming the back straight just for me.
July 12th huh? Can I bring FUR?

Cool, thanks !


I was riding in advanced and CR in Intermediate.


What session did he CR in ?




Were you in Advanced ?

Did you go off in the bus-stop in the last session ?

( It was a Yellow F4 and was right in front of me )

Yeah, I was control riding and riding in Advanced. Last session, first lap, that was me. Jim, Jeff, Tom, Keith and I all lined up together in front, so I was following them.. hesitated for a second after braking for the bus-stop and just felt like I wasn't gonna make it. First time off the track at BHF. Kept it up all the way into the tires though.

I was watching from just behind you as you went off.....and at the same time someone was showing me a wheel into the bus-stop on the OUT LAP.


Everything OK ?

Looked like a relatively soft landing .....

Yeah, not a big deal, bike didn't touch the ground.. was just a quick off and back on. Pulled in for a sec' to make sure my tires weren't all muddy or anything and I was back out and on pace for the rest of the session.

Thanks Ken for the kick off my racing season,
Thanks Jim #59 for hooking me up with the club.
I met a number of new biker fellows, broke in my new Factory...
Bottom-line: had a blast and looking forward to the next outing.
