TWS (Texas World Speedway) - Ridesmart July 3rd review

had a great time. met some cool people as always. finally got my knee down. spoke with an instructor for awhile and he told me to change my position on the bike. did that and right away, felt 100 times better and got knees down in multiple corners. helped me carry my speed through corners and carry consistent lines. congrats to taylor for being voted smoothest rider for level 1.

Did Ty Howard school and he worked me out!
He was such a hard working teacher.
He filmed us every session and told us what we were doing right and wrong.
He mainly pointed out about my lines and exit speed.
The line I carry and he carries were quite different.
Well, he's the fastest guy in CMRA, so whatever he does is working.
Now I have tons of homework to do.
After I feel like I'm done with those homework, I'll go back to his school to get some more.
Growing is fun.

try climbing a ladder in a aerobic excercise or going to a gym and working out your legs. usually one of your legs is stronger than the other and more weight can be added to your stronger leg and not so much to your weaker side.

That was an interesting trackday. A lot of people out there looked good. Nutmegchoi looked quick and smooth as always. Efmang was definitely moving quicker than than the last time I saw you there not too long ago.

Unfortunately for me, I went out on 1 20mins session and when I came back in my left side frame slider (which bolts into the motor mount hole) must have fallen off somewhere on the track. Nobody saw it though. Either that or someone stole it off my bike right before I went out and I didn't notice it. :dontknow:
