Picked up an 02 GSXR 600 from Garth @ NESBA and rode it all day today at BHF.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

NICE! Prepare for an adiction of track riding that is not reversable. Did you have a good time this weekend? Hot enough for you? How was the weather at BHF? I was at Putnam all weekend and sweat out more that I drank. I think I consumed 2 gallons of water and gatorade today. Good weekend? Break any lap records on the Garth Machine?

Hey I didn't know that was you. I stayed behind you during the first session to learn the track and I saw you throughout the day. It seems like you got more comfortable on the bike because you were running much quicker at the end of the day. Nice bike, good job man!

Jeff,

Glad to see that you picked up Garth's bike! It was good to see you at the track. I followed you around a little bit here and there as well and it looked like you just got more and more comfortable every session.

Hopefully you can join us at Autobahn North in two weeks. It is a little simpler and a muc wider track. Tons of fun!

Anyhow, congrats again man.

Oh by the way, my Baxley (that you bought from me actually) chock looks good holding the Garth Machine!

Yeah, I'm completely hooked now. I ran my Ninja 250 at BHF in 3 track days previously, but haven't been out there in over a year, and never on a proper bike. Getting on a brand-new-to-me bike for the first time on a track day was an experience.

The control riders (Peter, Brian, and the others) where all really cool. One realed me in on my last session and got me to pick up the pace a lot more than I was doing so on my own, and the bike was feeling really good. I was just taking my time and concentrating on my body position, and making sure to stay focused; it was hot as hell and I didn't want to end up playing with Bambi in the woods

Hmm, who's that in the orange shirt following me?

Also, in the second pic who's on the white & orange bike in front? I can't read the number (95, 96?) but I think he was the control rider leading me around on my last session yesterday.
