Looks like I will need a set of tire warmers if I want to try and chase after you on the first lap! Especially when it is 40 degrees out.

It's a lot easier with the front tire off of the ground ...

I was "that guy", too. Had him sign my tank / air box cover

so how many people out that had tires that were warmer than they were? you'll spend $200 on things to keep your tires warm but you freeze your off!

Quick note:

Thanks to all who showed up. It was chilly but at least the wind died down. I was hoping you would enjoy the surprise attendance of Colin. I knew he was coming out for the day. He's a good friend and I respected his request of privacy. I'm glad you all got to meet him.

Thanks to Dirk Anderson you made this happen as well.
Lindsey as well for the pic's.
Tim Tucker for the sign at the gate, as your host was just a little late.
Our corner workers who jumped in at the last minute.

Hey we had a good day. No one hurt, knocked some off season cob webs off of us, and had some fun.

Thanks again to all.

Thanks to Tim, Dirk, and everyone else involved in making this day happen. I enjoyed the chance to ride GSS again, and even though the weather wasn't as good as hoped for, it was still a very fun day with plenty of good track time. Was really cool to get to meet Colin Edwards also, thanks for that surprise!
