About what i expected...

Lacking some organization and light on staff but cant beat the price. Not a td for noobs but if you know your way around this is pretty hard to beat.

Agreed. It was not a riding school, it was a trackday. Works for me!

YUP, not a school, was light on staff...However, I felt it was decent and they did a solid job in stating their vision for their services. I will supplement my instruction school TDs with these guys to practice what I learn.

I had a fun day and will ride with them again.

po po, where where you pitted? I felt wierd walking around asking for peoples MOTOHOUSTON handles (probably because everyone around me was from Dallas and they did not know what I was refering to) so I stopped

I was in garage 2 on the side closest to the bathroom in the middle. Boss Lady and my buddy were on one side of me, and some dude on a S1000RR was on the other. I didn't see anything that looked like your bike.

I was next to the guy with the DJ sound system in the other garage. Funny I was talking to the guy changing with the S1000RR while he was out his front tire and he was the only one around. Catch up with you next time, hipe to be up there with Track Tactics in two weeks.

Field expedient tire change in the style of MacGyver....or possibly even MacGruber, but it worked!

I was on the other side of the guy on the S1000RR on the blue 09 zx6 (985). I had fun, but my buddy Pawel his a rider that was out in the wrong level that obviously didn't know what he was doing :(

Can't say I blame the organization because some people just don't listen, but this kid obviously had no idea what to do if you get black flagged.

I did have a couple of issues. Somehow managed to rip the back of my belly pan off. The last inch or so is gone...And I managed to hit some curbing and it ripped the velcro on my suit. But I did manage a new personal best, so I was pretty happy.

Yea, that whole situation was just...wierd. They didn't explain very well what a black flag meant in the riders meeting. Then again, they cut the A group guys loose, I assumed they went into more depth about the meaning of flags afterwards.


Oh, I was the slow guy on the black/yellow R6 halfway down the bay from you.
