We did our best at spotting those that might need more help from instructors. We black flagged the riders that looked uneasy during the round robin, and they were paired up when they got back to pit (or so I'm told). I think we should have a different colored flag for it though, because people thought we were actually black flagging them for doing something wrong. :eh:

Nah, we just wanted to pull you in before the end of the session so we didn't lose ya. Did they do an interview? I didn't get to see anything that was going on back at the paddocks, so I'm just going by what I heard on the radio.

Dang, did you ride there too and camp at the track? Man, you are one true biker.

So how was the traffic in Level 2?

I rode to Houston and trucked to the track. Stayed at Quality Suites, after track day, decided to ride back with my other friend. I love riding. One of these days, I would like to go to Washington or Oregon on a bike.

Traffic in level 2 was quite fast. Surprised me that a lot of fast guys turned out. It's more fun when you are passing up riders in corners. I only pass about 3 that's it. I got passed plenty of times. It only take one bad turns and it would screwed up the following turns.

Wow - i did'nt now that many riders from MotoHouston were gonna be there. You guys always seem more of a stunt oriented crowd. But i'm glad we got some track nuts in here .

You know, i was with the TSBA guys and we were maybe 10 guys - but we had our own little corner, with our own big FLAG and were representing and helping each other out.

Maybe the MotoHouston peeps should do that dude? We could all save each other money and time, if we plan ahead?

What do you guys think?

PS: Whose going on the 23rd of Sep to TWS (Texas World Speedway)? I am

Oh you'll do just fine.. I was chasing a Beamer and another old bike with a center stand, every time they would lean - it would scare the outta me! i thought it was gonna touch the ground and pull the bike right under neath em.

Your bike should do just fine for levels 1 and 2. Besides - its gonna be your first track day, just take it easy!

How and When are you going? I might hop in with you and split the costs if your trailering. I still have'nt found a decent hitch for my Z .
