Hey now...I have two other bikes beside the ZX that are non tards. But yes, I love me my tard for laughs at the track. Hoping to get comfortable enough on this one to have same laughs...I'm getting there.

Hope to see you there in the afternoon.

Still much more comfortable on a tard, but I want to try to get where I can run a 2:00 lap. When I crashed last year, I had run some 2:06's per my timer. I know that is not "fast guy" fast, but it is my target. For a fat 40 year old, I'd be happy if I can run a 2:00.

I used to run 2:13's on my old Speed Triple with horrible suspension. Obviously I have some mental blocks to overcome.

Hope find my testicles again while riding this thing. They seem to go away when I get on this biotch.

You coming on your 10?
try it as a fat 58 yr and see what you think then, see ya tomorrow pm

It was directed at Bryan, he has a 10R as well. Sorry I missed you.

Had a great day. Felt comfortable finally. Ran some 2:11's early on, then ended up running some consistent 2:08's for quite a few sessions. Not where I want to end up, but it really felt comfortable. Ran B group and everyone seemed to play nice.

The wind was much more of an impact that I imagined, but I was very glad it was there. Freaking Hot.

Hats off to LSTD and crew. Very well run organization, you can near set your watch by the session start times.

I had a great day. Pics are up too:
http://cafephoto.smugmug.com/LoneStarTrackDaysTWS6-2011

My buddy high sided in turn 11 in the second to last session in level C. There was a red honda bike that I saw in the paddocks that was pretty tore up as well.

Does Cafe-pics have coupon codes? Their prices suck. 2 pics for $20? Hart is 5 pics for $22.50. There's 3 pics I'd really like to have, but I'm not paying $30 for it...especially when hart is only $16.20 for the same amount...almost half price!
