Oh! Btw, see if you can come out on Sunday to the closed golf course on Bisssonet. Rode there last Sunday, had some serious blast.

To win.

If I'm not trying to win, I may as well stick to track days.

Running around getting my whipped is not what I call fun. But that's just me.

Although qualifying and subsequently getting my whipped in an AMA SBK race was pretty fun.

And I agree with Irak.. How are you going to have a $30k BMW, brag about it all over this board, and not have enough money to go race a few times?!?

Personally, I'd love to be able to get back out on the tracks with CMRA. Still trying to figure out how that's going to happen.
I got me a shout out in here! MSRH was fun to win, but winning at tracks I've never been to was the best.

I want some rookie expert wins, and to latch on to some guys faster than me

1. Pass as many people as possible and get passed by as few people as possible.

2. Win some contingency money so I can afford to buy new tires.

3. Not start in the last (or second to last) row of the 2nd wave like i did at my first and only race last year. This will help with goal 2 but probably hurt goal 1...lol. I'd be happy just by starting in the first wave honestly...

4. Not crash.
