Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Will be there riding proud in my novice group. Just put fresh tires on the 750 so it should be good times.

Does STT usually have any gas available at the track?

I didn't think they had any out there when I was there with PTT last year, but maybe I totally overlooked them. In any case I might just bring gas with me this time.

Find a Track Coach and express your interest and ask as many questions as you can as many times as you want.

Will do. I'll be the short guy wearing a fancy Rossi replica helmet (I'm such a wanna-be) on a black R6.

An "expericed novice!"

Boy does that make me sound pathetic!

That's like calling somebody who keeps flunking Geometry an "Experienced 10th grader!"

I'm thinking about Sunday. Need to finally get the service parts for the brakes, then install them this week. Probably only Sunday though. Are they switching tracks between days?

I haven't even checked yet. There's a good chance they are! Sometimes they rent one track Saturday, one track Sunday, then the full course on Monday (only day they can do that per the club bylaws).
