Im sure they prob know half the route by now and would love to bend every last one of you guys over and ream your out with a big ticket.

Have a nice ride
The only time I see a lot of passing is riding from point A to point B. If you Are slowing everyone down....then....you will get passed!.

On the twistis......one or two pass. That's it! !!!!

It was generally pretty chaotic. Ive been on a lot of group rides and this one is by far the least organized.

Btw dont worry bout me . I think you got bigger fish to fry working on staying on your own line

If you ever decide to do a track day lemme know. I can show you how to do it

In all actuality it will prob make me avoid rides all together, and if I can tell my story and keep others from getting in my situation then I will. End of story.

As far as you trying to poke fun at my "riding lvl" why dont you come on out and try to follow me around on that liter bike and get humbled?
you know Mark, i might just do that once my shoulder injury gets better... and no, i won't be tracking my duck..... considering a 600cc for the track.

i am a pretty humble guy if you really gave it a chance to actually know me. I just thought your constant about our SMR was a little childish and trying to blame other for your own actions a bit immature, that's is why i replied to your post and see if you can see this from a different perspective once you set your anger/grudge aside. Have you noticed how the other 5 riders never complained? instead they just maned up and accepted their responsibility without having to look for excuses and trying to blame on others.

Don't take it personal, cause i honestly don't..... if you pay close attention to the list of riders on our SMRs, you will see that most of them are regulars, so in turn you are really preaching to the wrong crowd so i just wanted to bring it to your attention and save you some of your valuable time.

Awwww why not?! Lol. I know I'd be scared as frick to track a duc... but then again if I had the money for one I'd prob track it. That's what it was built for right? I see quite a few guys on ducs at the track days. Ya don't gonna go all out on it.... Maybe have your duc and 1 other cheaper track bike. Ya gotta ride it at least once in a track setting!

I completely agree with you.... i have heard the same thing about track day riders and i have seem my share of street riders making them look bad it goes both ways i guess

If you have done enough track days then you probably would know that the people that i mentioned are not the ones you think they got their license by not crashing or paying big bucks..... Sure, there are a few of those but don't naturally assume that everybody got their license that way, specially people that are known to be fast that you just don't seem to know about.

FYI check the times for #224 at MSRH and let me know if you can do better, and he is riding a smaller R6

money is not my concern Snow if you rode a duc you would understand

The duc is not as nimble as the 600's so i will be more competitive on a 600 than on my duc.... the top speed of my duc is pretty much the same as the R6 so there is no actual advantage to track the duc.

I just dont get it... When people just get faster than average w/o achieving a significant milestones in racing world (like winning races/championship or setting track records)... Why do they feel the necessity to use their personal improvement as a resume/business card in a conversation?

U obviously havent been around long enough. The smr's always get hated on eventually. I guess I just had an epiphany (if you will), and it happened on ur beloved smr..

Yeah im hating/crying etc.. It is what it is. There is a lot more personal stuff bothering me that prob didnt help me hold back on this one.. oh well..

Floyd: Not even gonna bother bro.. Ur def way to hard headed to take anyones advice, or to even try to learn anything. So all I can say is Dont die
