I agreed on that point...on the chaos. But talking about not having to sign a form or having a riders meeting...he's wrong. Completely wrong. Just sayin'.[/QUOTE]

I did not say that,
I responded to somone who said there was no rules laid out before the parade laps, I was not part of them so I do not know what you all did, in which case I said: Should have been a rider's meeting? Absolutely Yes there should have been one.
There is always one as far as I know, and I have seen Bevo doing a great job stating them at PP1 as well, so technically they should hear them at least twice.
But here is the thing, some people also meet up later, so Yes some may not hear the rules, some may not sign a waver, some are just wandering around the track and foreget about it....etc.

You got me all wrong man

I come into turn 2 and a t pile of you guys showed up! I almost ran off the track looking at the long a$$ line of bikes coming up the drive.
I like the dude that used his blinker when exiting the track it was cute
Glad everyone came out. hope you're all addicted

edit: just read where Bevo signaled when passing Tim, classic

You got me all wrong man

But that is OK too, as someone mentioned we all going to have a different perspective depending on your little moment in there.
Take the Busa rider that told me to get my facts straight (like I do not know what i see). To him great fun popping small accelaration wheelies, first denied then "Big Deal" according to him. To a new guy next to him not so cool seing a guy next to him not being able to control his bike and keep it down. I mean how hard do you have to acceparate on a parade lap that you could not keep the front end planted?
Or Take the ZZR with the saddlebags for example, he had a blast in his eyes. From the outside though it looked like he was holding people up in turns, then he would gun it every single time on the straight next to the cement wall and pass 5-6 bikes, then park it before the first left from the inside becasue he was next to the wall while all the others more in the midfield follwoing a line. This was pusing people wide before the turn and messing up the rhythm of the people that were just passed. Did the people behind him that were trying to follow a line have fun ? Or were they going like this WOW look at all this power and now we can al lpile up again due to excessive braking

So I guess everyone will have a different opinion, but saying that reading my post hurts....or that I am misinformed ........ WOW.[/QUOTE]

since obviously u dont know wat get ur facts right means lets try head out of i wrote if i came up a foot big deal key word being IF i did not say i did

Having said that
I have to admit I am glad I was not doing them, in those 5 minutes I spent watching it, it looked like a recipe for disaster.

Godsuki and Bevo out front playing, new people trying to keep up with them out of excitement making all kinds of passes on slow new riders.
A go kart among bikes (no lights or suspension flex to gauge speed/braking for new riders),
A corvette (A cage among bikes was that cage a pace car? cause there wasn't any)
A Busa popping wheelies on the main straight.

Yeah yeah rules are meant to be broken sometimes, but everything in moderation, and all this circus act took place with people wearing jeans
OMG, STFU, you sound like a little European baby.

You obviously have never ridden a busa. "controlling" the front wheel from coming up, on a track, is not an easy thing to do if his level of fun is....fast.

And who are you to criticize people wearing jeans during PARADE LAPS? Maybe you should look at your myspace page again, cuz last time I checked, you have pics of yourself doing wheelies with a chick on the back of you bike, while in jeans and wearing no gear at all. Not to mention your main page with a pic of you in jeans...

You, along with lots of other crybabies, are a reason people stray away from this site. If you have a problem with the way a track runs their sessions, or parade laps, just dont go back. Dont come on here and try to bash them, cuz frankly, they're going to fill up every trackday with their "circus" rules regardless.

Please dont post anymore.

Chit I ran my busa on the track; it was lifted and trimmed for more ground clearance before the timing case covers hit. Doesnt mean I did wheelies. I havent mastered two wheels on the ground, why would I chance one?

Finally got the parade lap vids up to YouTube. Hope the links work.
Part 1...
Part 2...

Had to do it in two parts because of the 10 minute time limit on YouTube.

Enjoy, (I hope).
