Thanks for the awesome picture T! :notworthy

Thanks James, for making close passes on the 250 and demeaning my riding :laughing6 , i'm surprised the TZ 250 has'nt sold yet. That bike is a monster! And i mean a real monster on the track!

Thanks for all the tips & help aswell James.

Moody, Jon Eric, Rocky, Mike & Eric - thanks for helping me load and unload , and giving me company.

I was very very nervous - being that it was Friday the 13th and i have never ever seen soo many crashes in my life! I counted till 12 - but then gave up! What shook me up really bad was when i realized 6 of them happened right when somebody passed me, or tried to pass me and crashed. (Most were Hondas.. Eric can account for that ).

Thank you all for coming out there & supporting the MotoHouston crowd!

Look forward to many more track days with you guys! :notworthy

you guys are all welcome, glad i could help and sorry i didn't a whole lot of time with each of you. I was in a zone yesterday. Arturo, the 250 was awesome, so much fun, it handled like a brick tho.... the suspension is set up for a 175# rider and i am only 135#, so it was a little stiff, getting back onto the 636 was like gettin into a cadilac after climbing off a horse. Corky, i only took a few pics, but there should be some of you, i'm not quite finished postin em yet..

Great pics James. Looks like you guys had a blast. I see it was cloudy, did it rain at all?

James, be sure and make it to the May14th LSTD TD at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I will be riding that one. Maybe you can show me the lines around there.

Nothing wrong with going slow. I had my first trackday last October and TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a big much for a first time trackday rider because it is a fast track. I was a turtle out there, I did much better at my MSR-H Noobday a month ago. You were in a B class on Friday where a lot of the riders were more experienced. Next time, do a Monday trackday and enter the C class, you'll feel more comfortable.

You have more then most of the people out there buddy. You were thrown in the deep end and told to swim on Friday. You did very well! Except for when you almost took me out when I was trying to pass you getting on the big straight. For a minute I thought you wanted to hold hands or put some paint on my fairings for me.

You didn't crash, did you? As long as you make it home in one piece including the bike, you did great. :icon_bigg

I called the B group the crashgroup on Friday. I had three riders down in and out of the horseshoe (T9/10) on Friday.

Nope didnt crash, went in to hot on one corner and just took the bike off roading a little. But didnt feel so bad about that one cause JonEric did it earlier in the day
yeah, went off on T4 in my first session out there and my first time even ride the track. I was too tense and nervous.

I had to throw the GSXR-1000 in 2 wheel drive and hit the traction control button.
