Excellent video Shawn! You were flying on the triumph..... i know its a sport tourer but you still kept ahead of most of the smaller and more agile sport bikes of the group. Good shot of grandpa wheelie, too bad his tires were sliding and couldnt do any endos.

I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!!

i havent had so much fun like that in a while.

it was cold and there were a lot of crashes so i didnt get the full experience but over all it was nice chilling with the guys and playing around.

once you were able to drag knee, you wanna do it again, and again, and again....

it was a lot of fun and it was worth it, dont have to worrie about anthing but warming up the tires and focuse on the turns.

Frank we have to go out there again bro.
and yes you to Omer.

its not bad at all... i rented a truck for $75 then spend about 30 on gas and the track day was 128.00 with the forums discount.
so you can do a track day with 200.00

I have to put the bike back to street for sunday!

well.... there was a total of 8 crashes, the whole morning the track was cold and there were few people that never been out there (like me) everyone made it home that day, some still rode the bike after they crashed and others, well... they had to get it on a trailer.

i can tell you this, " you have lest chances of eating out there then on the streets thats for sure!" i ran way wide on some turns and others i ran really short and almost hit the yellow and black corners (actually i hit one of them LOL)

some times just happents and all you can do its get back up!

after the track got warmed and i was getting familiar with the track and knew where and how to get into the turns is when i was going a little out after that.

Frank, if you're too worrie about crashing just take Omer's bike, that should be easy to fix.! LOL...

later tonight i'll post a video of the track and a little ride we did in the morning.
i left the Go Pro on and didnt know so my battery die after lunch, i didnt catch the good stuff.

i'm going to start saving and working really hard to get as much track time as i can this year...
but dont worrie, i'll still come out on Sunday just for you guys!
