POST: Learning Curves at BHF

Moparboyy and myself had an awesome time today at Blackhawk

We got our diploma at the end (for not crashing)

We were passing each other and some of the curves, and it was great!

Alex, thanks for the ride on the truck, you kick ass

The race practice at the end was pretty cool too...

Thanks to JRSMAIL for lending me your safety wire and pliers, and I got the CCS rule book you requested

On the last lap of the race practice, the guy came up really hard on the straight and braked so hard that he did a stoppie

Jack, yeah, it was a huge group. 37 bikes or somethin like that.

this was AWSOME!!! big props to Rick and the other instructors..

i was dragging knee like crazy for the 2nd half of the day.. and i even gave one of the instructors on his race sv650 a good run for his money for a lap..

Also.. best time i have had on a bike now is racing around with Fabio.. we must have passed each other 20 times yesterday in all parts of the track

Sounds like great time!

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

How did ya miss me. You rode right by me during school's 2nd practice session. Who do ya think was standing on the end of the white (actually yellow) line pointing at it with the yellow flag when you guys came out of hot pit into turn 1. Wild guess I was wearing white and had a track radio.
