First Track Day

I've always been eager to have a track day but I never really had time because of work and school and gf in the way. I ended up getting a new and better schedule from work so the first thing I thought of was "YES more time"...I mean track time...

anyways I signed up for March 10 Sunday two weeks before and didn't even cared to check the weather until after and when I did it said it was thunderstorming. I didn't want to cancel it because I normally had the experience of the forecast to look a bit better as the days get closer and plus it was two weeks before the actual day

I was so excited everyday for it until I checked the weather. Throughout the week I'd keep checking over and over and it would be too late to get a refund.

Unfortunately, on the day of the official track day that forecast never got any better. Me and CBR_Tran just went anyways seeing this morning to be sort of dry.

When it was our turn to get out there the storm came in, HARD. Like I mean during our session, we were going around 10-15mph getting from our sides and in our face. Our instructor ended up getting pushed out of the track and the rest of us too to stay near the edge on the line. And then what's even worse is that with the cold winds, my nipples were as sharp as knives and stung like bees.

We ended up leaving at around 11 and so did 60% of the people there. Boy, talk about luck of the first TD. At least I finally met NewRider and Chris 5.0

Thanks to CBR_Tran for helping me out on my first TD, if only you were lmao

For those of you who are too lazy to read
-Signed up March 10 two week before
-Saw after that it was thunderstorm-ing on several weather apps
-Excited but checked every hour and day
-No luck
-Went anyways with CBR_tran
-Got in the by the thunderstorm from every side and on my face
-met NewRider and Chris 5.0
-Left at around 11

Yeah, while the riders meeting was going on. I made the executive decision and told Chris I was not gonna ride that day (it had nothing to do with the hangover from the night before).

Glad we loaded up our bikes earlier in the morning, it would have sucked major doing it in that weather.

Hope your next td is better.

I was so passed when he woke me up. Never drink with 1FC, he handles his liquor so good it makes you feel you're just as good, you ain't

But yeah, once I saw your chairs start to move around like an exorcism, I knew it was time to hurry up and finish packing.

Hey cuz asked me to knock it out. So I grabbed my stand and swung away.

Alot went into that as well. He showed up to the td with no money, no tools, we drove back n forth a couple times to try n help him. Then he locked the keys in the truck. Rough weekend, however we got the truck open without any problem.
