It was great seeing you at the track Gary. You were hauling in level 3! I looked over my shoulder from the paddock area every time you went by. "There he goes!"

I definitely enjoyed myself this weekend, it felt good to go back to MSRH and TWS (Texas World Speedway) these past two weekends. That front straight is fun, I hit rev limit in 6th once on Sunday, 178mph....reminds me of a BORC ride

I hit 5th on the front straight before the Rossi pass, but Gary is geared down in the sprockets I think.

That's just the way he likes it. Makes him feel like it's a normal moderate paced forest ride.

Thanks, the only other time I have ridden this track was Oct 15&16, 2011. And this was my first time on track in 15 months. The beginning of this session I had only done 4 laps the previous session.

Umayr, the video I took of you during the last session of the day is uploading in 1080P It will be finished at around 12:30 or 1. Provided the upload doesn't get interrupted. I'll be in bed by then so here is the link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYvkh...ature=youtu.be

That li'l 600 is scootin. If you notice in the vid. you kept getting further and further away. I was trying to keep up, but I was running on BT-021 sport touring tires with over 5000 hard miles on them and I could feel them slip every now and then.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
