My 1st MSR Track Day!

Okay, Okay, no need to thank me for mixing things up by providing a rolling chicane today. It was my pleasure!

Thanks to Buck, and everyone who helped, for putting on a great track day! I had a great time and look forward to doing it again! It was pretty awesome to watch the FAST riders blow by me and disapear and make it look easy! I look forward to learning the track better and picking up the pace as well as getting to know all the riders out there a little better.

See you all next time!!

Mike

Yeah, I was pretty slow today. I gotta admit though, I saw a lot of safe passing just like people were told to do! :laughing6

Track was fantastic yesterday J. Was running low 40's with traffic...... a great bunch of riders yesterday, good form and held lines very well. Everyone was able to run thier own pace, and some of the most curteous passing I've seen out there. A great day, thanks to everyone who showed.........

Glad you had a good day.
Mine was good as well.
I struggled a little bit with suspension and tires.
But I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for all your help, Mike.
Thanks for making me go (or look) faster.
