I ended up sitting out a session to get my bike cleaned up and had a great time the rest of the day..
Ashley right? Thanks for making room for me to pit.

I woke up feeling fine this morning. I'm not any more sore than I would be from an ordinary track day. The man upstairs was looking out for me!

Yea, that was me. My gf is a nurse and she was a lil concerned about a possible concussion, but again good to hear ur doing well! Oh and give ur gf a big thanks, she convinced me to sit out a session bcuz of the oil on my bike. It ended up giving me a pretty long lunch break and left me with enough energy to finish off the day..

Sure thing bud. No worries, you'll have a lot more fun in Level 2 and it'll be easier to work on your skills when you're not having to worry about passing someone at every other corner.

heres one of me

check it out, and give me some pointers.

I KNOW WHAT IM DOING WRONG.

Im getting my off the seat, yes but i have a problem with right hander's i guess im just spooked to get my upper body down there..

maybe because i have a bad rotator cuff (scared its gonna give out and ill go limp?)

who knows. mr. p was sayin to just "raise the elbow a bit and get over what ever is mind you on right handers"

I like my lefties

http://www.hart-photography.com/phot...wImage=2126782


anyway, I had a blast in l3.. only hopped in it because 2 was full, and to my suprise, only a few people blew my doors off. and only a hand full of people were getting past me and STAYING past me.

compared to level 2, 3.. its a gentleman's game for sure

love it, thanks again ride smart and hart photography

My first time riding with Ride Smart..first time riding MSRH (the entire track) and first full track day on my bike (I was on the Harley-Davidson). The heat was too much and I could only complete one session after lunch. It was great to meet several of you who stopped by where I was pitted and there were definitely some excellent riders in my group. Some of you should consider racing in the CMRA. See you again at the track soon.....Chris

Man, I didn't know he crashed, but yes... he was MUCH improved from the last trackday! I hope he doesn't get discouraged by this and gets back out there as soon as he heals up... or until it cools down, whichever comes later.

I was jealously watching everyone from turn 7.

Yeah seemed like a good time when I visited. Had to leave cause my friends over at BRAWP Racing and HalfFast are bad influences... "I have an extra helmet and boots" , "You can borrow my bike"

Worst part is I wanted to but glad to see everyone out there.

What level were you in and do you know what color bike/model it was?
