well it would have been nice to meet you. :icon_bigg

actually it was a pleasure helping you guys out, and we hope that you took something home with you. i followed you several times, you were looking pretty good. confidence was up in the afternoon. just remember to forget about whats behind you and you'll be fine, and the guy that was passing you so close was Maurice, he's an instructor. he was the big guy in the back corner of the classroom sitting behind you

You were the instructor sitting up front next to me in the first class session and Ronny introduced you as being new, correct?

Thanks for the feedback. It was my first trackday and I took it very easy.

I think it would be cool if there was some way we could recognize each other. I was at TWS (Texas World Speedway) yesterday and only saw Denee (she was pitted next to us and her bike is not well camoflaged). Oh and I saw Black Widow when I was lookin at his bike.

I said it last time - take blue tape and make an MH on your bike/helmet/leathers. Easy, cheap, and fairly recognizeable.

I'll be on the big silver Strom at the Nov 11 track day. Can't miss me!

What WAS up with that? Slickery or a case of too much juice on the exit going around?

Patrick, thanks for the tip on the Bridgestones...very impressive.

i think the line thru the that turn spooks everyone, they think it's slick b/c of its color, several people were trying to miss in C group all day, it's sicological, (sp):laughing6 it's all in your head. some people use that line to rail that turn, I do for half of it anyway.

good to see you two boys out there, wish i could've ridden with you but, it's a busy time for me out there.

hopefully by next year i'll have my s/n on my leathers somewhere so that i'll be recognised easily.

lowside...........in t10 i dont know how it happened im still trying to figure it out.............there was no upsetting of the susp or the line.I was leaned over then all of a sudden i hear the rear scrapping and down it goes.I didnt get any injuries at all but bike is kinda rashed hard to find parts for it.
In that turn i was on the gas but i dont think it was too much. All i know was i was staring at the curb so it wasnt like i was backing down from the turn.

the only bad thing about having that bike is parts are gonna be tough to find, glad you made it out ok.. practice being real smooth with that throttle, that thing will highside you like a before you know it.
