I think you misread a lot of stuff.

Buck said he wanted people out there who were uncomfortable with regular trackday pace. That is all we were talking about.
Oh and not who is more experienced, but rather who is less experienced.

I am also not sure where the idea came from that people will see this as a competition? I think it is pretty clear from all the posts that people want to learn to become better and safer riders. Nothing else.

Trackdays aren't competition anyways and a noob day is for learning. CMRA races are for competition.

To Mulatto, thanks for the post. I am looking forward to this trackday and I will soak up all info like a sponge.

I was just making a point!!! People including you were making remarks about how people were going to be passing you or maybe you'll actually be getting to pass people this track day. Take it how you want, I was just stating that, that's not what the track day was about and I wasn't going for that. I was getting tired of hearing who should and shouldn't be out there, and who was gonna be passing who and all that . I am going out there to learn!!! Plus my comment wasn't directed towards you, it was directed towards everyone who was making comments about it!!!

Sorry you can't make it Sassy. Did you email Buck with your cancellation already? if you haven't/didn't know to, shoot him an official email to cancel.

If there is those are the people that need the most help from a day like this. I don't think Buck will have any issues with the people he has on the roster.

Replied to your email Buck. I'm out, so it goes to the next in line. I can't come up with leathers or $$ for leathers since I'd be paying for the track day itself.

I'll still be there as the bumbling pit crew for Nikki, Josh, and JoshBro though!

People talking about this one being faster than that one and all that stuff.
Well I see plenty of big bikes on the list, so you may be a noob to the track, but not to riding. So you should do fine on the track, if you can ride the street, then you can ride on a track in a controlled environment.

2. Buddha429 - Kenneth - silver 1000rr
3. JonEric0430 - Jon Eric - blue/white GSXR-1000

I'm bummin'............just found out that 3/3 is "Opening Day" for League City Little League. Which means I'll be out at the track in the morning for a bit, then I'll be back in the late afternoon if things go well. Also have a charter that scheduled for the same day. Rains it pours.............. Not to fear, there will be lots of other instructors for the day, but you won't see much of me.
