OK….well as some of you know I did my first track day 2 weeks ago…up at Grattan. All in all it rocked!!!!
Besides the hurricane winds, quarter sized hail, it downpouring, tent getting demolished and the EZ up getting demolished… :lmao We can laugh about it now.....but while we were there
But anyway….I was initially signed up for Sunday but at the last minute was able to get in Saturday's sessions….glad I did cuz it was raining on Sunday and we didn't ride….
Anyway…..so I'm nervous and excited at the same time……get ready to go out for our first session…I started in group 6 in Novice and Meech was our coach.
So we go out…I'm last (of course)….I start freaking out after the first few turns…..cuz they are all almost BLIND!!
And we all know how I am in turns….this is specifically why I wanted to do a few track days….just get better in my turns without all the distractions that we have on the street. So to continue…I drop behind a bit….just trying to relax and I get behind this guy who I thought was part of my group…he was slower than me (if you can imagine that
) and he started in Group 4
…..anyway…so I drop further behind….Meech drops back to get me and we finish out the session.
I come off track…and yeah I was a sissy little girl…I had tears in my eyes (no shit talking!!!!) I was like…I'm done…I'm not riding this track…r u nutz!!!! Meech got me some one on one coaching and after the 2nd session I felt 98% better. Being right behind the coach made a world of a difference.
So by the end of the day…I was rocking…and feeling really comfortable in most of the turns. LOVED turn 3 and the S curves…hated the bus stop!!!
Also…I'm addicted….can't wait to do another track day!!!!!!
Thanks Meech and Terra for taking me to my first track day….hopefully next time the weather is on our side!!!!
Here are some pics….split second photo was there….I have no idea when these were taken…but by the end of the day I thought I was doing pretty good…with leaning and stuff…then I see the pictures :lmao :lmao :lmao
