Thanks guys, It was just one of those days when everything seemed to have come together for me.
I was in Shock that I could make passes with ease and when I ended up dragging my knee I didn't even see it coming.
I guess things were running smooth and I just picked up speed.

BTW... I was going to ask to move to B group but I let Moe ride B and I rode in C after lunch.

Yeah Swift, you looked smooth as out there. I got some pics, but nothing too fancy. I'm gonna take my USB cord home tonight and I'll put what I got in this thread. I may need someone to resize them as I no longer have Microsoft Picture Manager.

Good thing for the lunch riders meeting. Both my front right caliper bolts had backed about 3/4 of the way out. The caliper was barely hanging on there, if it wasn't for that meeting I would have never checked it.

:icon_bigg i taught him that move

I was trying to keep my eye on those 2 but, when they would get on the straight they would pull away.... I tried to catch Carbon on there and almost got blown off the bike.

Doubt it, you were looking really good... and I am having this weird issue with my outside leg bouncing around like crazy. I never had the issue on the RR but seem to be having issues lately with getting it locked in somewhere. :eh:

I got a good run out of the chicane during one of the sessions trying to catch James, gunned it down the straight and just about flew off. :laughing6

Dammit I'm ready for the track.

All I need is new tires and rear brake pads.

I had to drive over and ask him to move the bike out of the crashzone. The bike was in pieces by the time we were done, they had the checker flag out. Of course it wasn't nice to see my boyfriend standing on the side of the track over his CBR when coming back to the corner . At least he is okay and the damage is fairly minor.

I saw the afternoon went much better.

Everyone looked great out there!

pics please... too bad too, i was looking forward to racing him in the mach race..:BangHead:

In group B? That was Mike Hutch. He was also the one racing with Tom in the CMRA mock race. Which was a blast to watch, we were at the edge of our seats. :icon_bigg

I watched one last year when I CW and enjoyed it. I left right after the last c group session. I was tired and relieved that everything went good on my first day out.

My low fuel tank came on as I loaded onto the trailer. I was like WTF!! I filled up that morning. But I guess running at high RPM's all day will do that.

Good to see everyone walked away from the day (almost) unscathed. Sounds like it was fun! I'll have to try to make it out to an LSTD event at some point, but the weekday schedule is hard to work around.
