Ivan great write up and what a great adventure for you. Great to see the camaraderie that exists even though there is a competition going on. Thinking back 5 or 10 years ago would you have ever thought you would have been doing this.
Best of luck in the future.

If someone would have told me that back then I would have looked at them like they were insane.

Even if someone would have told me that after my 3rd trackday, I would have laughed.Just ask BYRDMAN...I was so painfully slow, I'm a little faster now, but not as fast as 24 other guys it seems

You are definitely on the thank you list. Not from this weekend, but from overall....from the towing at the track to the work you've done on the bike.
