Track day 1-27-07

I just got back from the track and I was going to take a few pictures but the dang batteries died after about 5 pictures!!:BangHead: :BangHead:

Good to meet some new guys and see the people that I do know. I didnt stay long but got to view one session.
Gonzo you are really looking smooth!! I will be back out there soon to pick up some more tips from you.

Riddler got a new bike!! Awesome I cant wait to follow you and learn how to pass on the next time I am there

I will post up the pics later. I gotta get cleaned up for a friends wedding reception. ( Yeah I skipped the ceremony but will be there for the beer and food:laughing6 )

I really need to get back out there. Too much fun going on there

Oh yeah, textbook highside... notice the rider tumbling along well in front of the bike? Ouch! It hurts less in the dirt than on the pavement, but still... At least it looks like the bike didn't catch up with the rider and run him over. That's the 'insult to injury' part of getting pitched off the top. Hope he's ok!

Yeah I rode back in the crash trailer with him (I stopped to help and got mud on my tires so I couldn't ride it back on). He was laughing and making jokes the whole trip back. It was hilarious. But at least he knew what he did wrong so he learned from it. Seemed like a good guy. I don't remember his name though :BangHead: I'm bad with people's names.


JRock - it was good to see you out there man! Come ride with us next time.

Hahaha... Thanks guys, I cant find my USB cable to upload the pics but I got them in the paddock not the action that you guys have.

I missed all the crashes but I am glad nobody got hurt.
I saw Godsuki there but when I came to the pits he was gone!?!?
Oh well. I will be out there soon.
Somebody1010 that Busa vid was kick @ss!! Good to meet you too
Mulato, you bet it was good to see you, that paint scheme on the race plastics kicks! Pinstriping was the way to go. Pics will be up when I find the cable.

The Dallas crew and Tony(houseofpain) were laughing and smiling throught the whole day, super nice guys. It was good to meet you guys BTW, got a chance to see some of Tony's work first hand :notworthy

+1 good to see you jrock, I could see that look in your eyes jrock is itching to get on the track :icon_bigg

somebody1010 was railing on the big(busa)tank, I think some one forgot to tell him he was on a busa, because he was riding it like a 600. Who knew those things could carry corner speed, job well done

that must have been shortly after i left. glad he is ok. thats pretty easy to do in that particular corner. up hill blind and it turns left, its easy to forget to look through the corner and drive right off the track. if he needs any help getting it back together just have him call the shop.

It was a pleasure meeting all of y'all out there. There is no way a little rain could bring me down. I tried to keep the spirit up so others will forget about the rain. Once the rain is gone, it's like kids in toy land or candy store.
