When are ya'll planning on doing this I would be glad to help.(as long as it isn't in the summer. I am a heat wuss.
No date set yet, but October is the first regular LMS trackday and that would give everyone time to get everything they need to in order.

And Carbon you were holding your own in Expert level on saturday.

Whatever, you have gotten fast. I saw you behind me so I started hauling braking late and really jamming through turns. I thought to myself I bet that put some space between us and sure enough look back and you are still there.

Did carbon1/2 get some times on you?

I think the support from her:notworthy and the parts I got from Motorcycles Unlimited:notworthy contributed the most to my performance. I'm not saying that i'm fast, i'm far from it in fact, when i hit a consistent 1:50, then i'll be happy.. Only a few more seconds to go..

We did not get any times this weekend. I'm kinda scared to get my times honestly.. Last time out, Henry got me doing 1:52 consistenly, so who knows, maybe i picked up half a second..

The new M-U brake pads i got def. played a role in my pace. I was waaaaaaaaay more confident in my braking abilities..

It helped a lot, and like a lot of people have pointed out, ride within your own limits. There are no plastic trophys at the end of a track day......if you learn something then you've won
I'm pretty ham fisted.......and I was on street tires with the Busa, and scared myself with the RC!!!
Had a good time though, ready to try it again!!!!
