Love that track. Isn't a blast? Nice pics.... way to represent TGF.

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

Yeah, that smoked screen was short lived. I worked hard to keep that monster off the ground all weekend at Barber and then the bike took a dive in the trailer on the way home.

So I get to buy me a fairing bracket stay and new wind screen.

Thanks Mike, I hate to admit it having ALWAYS owned Honda's since I was a kid bit the truth is that Suzuki got it right with this bike. It really is very easy to ride fast and sounds inspiring when you are onboard it.

I was doing OK, just trying to get comfortable on the bike.

As for you, I can't wait to see the new improved version of Carol this year!

Heck, it's been so long all I remember is that I was out of shape then and I'm still out of shape.

By the time we get to the track, you guys are all going to be warmed up and well on the way towards your goals. Be nice, ok?

Thanks Mike - We'll have to see how life turns out on the 600RR this year... I have a feeling I will be playing catch=up for a while.

About time you let me lead for while. But we've been riding on the track for what this is the 3rd year now?, I'm sure you wont be playing catch-up too long.
Are you doing R/A in April?
