my july 17th LSTD experience

well i think i had an alright time. there were some outside factors that were slowing me up. i almost ate on the new tires i got. so if anybody wants to buy some metzler m3s that have one track day on them, please let me know. me and taylor did get moved up to level two and i think we did a pretty good job without pushing harder. on the last session i got on a diff bike that had some semi race tired, i honestly forgot what they were called, but they were best tires ive ever been on, i was able to push myself a little more and found how important tires are. not that i didnt know, but my only other tire experience on the track were thre pilot powers, which were great. buti wanted to try something new out and unfortunately it didnt work out. the LSTD crew was good. well if yall are wondering, on the last session on the other tires, i ran a 2:11.xxxx. hopefully after this year or maybe next depending on how i feel or progress im definately going to step it up to cmra. just wanna say thanks to taylor for being my track buddy all these track days, memo, julie, and vu for being there too and sharing ideas and pointers. i learned alot this track day for some reason about friendship and track commarodery<sp?> so anyways, thanks to all the homies who were there. hopefully there are many more to come.

glad you had a good time, people are so opinionated about tires, just find what fits you best and stick with it for now.. but there is a huge difference between street tires and race tires..
