+1 on that comment I'm sitting here staring at my computer screen wishing I would have had one less Petron on Saturday night! Maybe it was the fact that I didn't get home until 5 and I was back up at 9:30.

Great to see you back out there on the track Jack. Sorry I spend so much time on the track and didn't have a lot of time with ya. Hope to see you back out there again more often. You seemed to be getting back in the groove very quickly.

Thanks Brian. Thanks again for letting me hang out with you guys. It was a lot of fun! I honestly can't remember the last time I went to the track and just rode. I'm not sure I ever have. It was fun. And thanks again!

The weather was awesome. There was some guy on a baby blue bike. I tried to show him a line to pickup his corner speed, but he thought he knew everything. What a great end to their season for bikes!

Thanks Tom you were awesome man I had a blast thanks for dragging me around the track. Can't wait until next season!

Thanks to all the control riders as well. You guys really make us newbies learn so much faster. Much appreciated.

Great day overall. Is the person that went down in turn 1 on the last beginner session ok? I saw the bike in the grass. I hope he/she is ok.

Does anyone know what pro photographers were onsite yesterday? I'm wondering if I can see my progress in the pics from my first intro day.

Thanks Brian I have done business with them before they do great work. I'm hoping to see some progress on my cornering! I know I was going a lot faster and hanging off much further than the first day.

I had fun, of course, but was definitly surprised/dissapointed to only get 5 sessions in....

My buddy on his standard FZ6 was turning 1:32s with B group traffic and it was his first track day ever....

The new owner of the track seemed like a nice guy. He should add painting the apex curbs to his list of upgrades.

EDIT - Wink asked me if I wanted to run in "I" but I declined due to my friend being in "B" and the large numbers in "I"......that was my bright spot for the day so I'll pat myself on the back for that one.

I didn't think "I" was really all that crowded. I could usually find a good chunk of wide open track every session.

I think I'll need to recalibrate my clock because you were lapping consistent 1:18s (Much faster than the rest of the group BTW )

Seriously, you were almost dragging your elbow in 4 and 5. Where did you shave 2 more seconds ?

Anyone know or can guess what times that guy on the orange GSXR was pulling? Dude was fast and loud!

I told you after Gingerman, your riding is much smoother.

Don't be depressed, he makes us all feel slow at times. He has such an ability to make the bike do what we wants. Just listen to what we tell you and work on those skills. I can already see the improvement in your riding from the last few events.
