So I got a knee down

Thanks to good body position.ch

Problem is I didn't have kneepads on, ouch. It's just a little red, didn't really feel it until I got home.

HAHAHA. I'm laughing at putting your knee down, and not having any protection. Kudos on the lean though. I can't do that for .

Proud of you kid.

Good riding.

That or he is trying to advertise for his new gig on one of the corners by reliant. But maybe he only has one kneepad and his other one is sore.

oh yea, FLAME SUIT ON.

I was just enjoying the day and I was playing around by Hwy 3 and the BW. I was just going in circles pretty much and it just happened. I think it's one of the few turns in Houston that you would even consider putting your knee down but it definitely wasn't my goal for the day. I NEED TRACK DAYS!!! Anyone have leathers for a fat guy??

I wish I could just go to the track any day, that would be awesome.

My girl is mad at me because I keep watching videos of TWS (Texas World Speedway) and GSS on youtube. I don't think she'll support what I'm sure will be a strong track addiction.
