Oh man! I really need more video input...now I get it when they tell me I need a better drive out...

Let's hope we get to play at TWS (Texas World Speedway) Joey....first time there...hope I do good.


Thanks for towing me Floyd. And thanks for the video, helps a lot in what I need to work on.

Little by little bud!

If you see me out there, come find me! It helps folling someone that knows the lines and is faster then you.. makes you a faster rider.

You can't be out there riding and not knowing where to go.. this is why its always a really good Idea to take the ARC class.

They teach you and show you how to be fast!

Floyd was def good at towing and being patient and waiting for me to catch up, you see it when I'm about to enter sugar n spice, he slowed wayyyyyy down, while I'm giving it all I got

I also need to work on passing a bit, and if you are fairly fast in level 1, you could learn it pretty good there.

Get someone to record you.

You are so right on the hugging of tank. I notice in the pictures that I am hanging off, but my opposite leg was not hugging the tank, infact it's like I make a point to stick that leg out on the other side too wtf...Deff need to work on that. I'll have the 28th to do it..


As far as cruisin, there are sometimes where I just don't want to just speed the heck up and just set up better for corners, so I kinda cruise on the straights... I do however have a problem getting on the gas quicker and more aggressive...this actually has been with me since I was in Novice..All the instructors have given me the same feed back, it's starting to click a little
