Smile CMRA... Here we go!

Finally!!!! I did it..

Took the School with one of the greatest guy I know. Alonzo C.

Sir you are an "A+" guy, I want to thank you for the school. Thank you for the friendship. Thank you for everything you do.

Dave (1FC) Thank you for showing me the line a few times... It sucks that you could not stay with us for the rest of the day. Fast line should appreciate the great work you and Alonzo and everyone else in their team do for them.

Here is my story.

Everyone talks about racing... we know how it goes.
Track riders tell street riders to do track days... and then the Racers tell track riders that they should race.

Racing is not for everyone. I am not looking to win a ride to AMA or MotoGp, but this is something I wanted to scratch from my bucket list.

It was really easy taking the school, and especially with a guy like Alonzo, so easy to understand, I donít know why it took me this long to really do it. I know part of it was to be a better rider before I lined up with people who are way faster then me, I donít care so much to be "the fast guy" I just enjoy the challenge and If I see someone better then me you better know I'm coming for ya

Thank you guys for the fun ride, thank you to all my friends for the support and for the extra push because knows I have other things that are more important for me to go after.

Congrats!

Now that you've taken the class, hopefully we will see you on the grid.

So many people take the class, logo & number their bikes all up and we never see them out there. :(

Saturday for the 250 team for sure.
Sunday Spring not sure yet..

If I got some extra cash and a bike ready then yes.

R6 Needs to have a lot of things done to it to pass tech.

Wiring, crank case covers, tank sliders.. etc..

Congrats, Floyd! Watching you lower your head and stand the bike up out of 17 was pretty impressive. You have a natural ability when it comes to riding a bike. I look forward to seeing you grid up!

I'm pretty sure Robert has some of it on video.
