Welcome to Ridesmart.

Try Fastline. Usually a much better crowd.

other than a few instructors, I wasnt passed until I was slowing it down for pit in. Did quite a bit of passing though, which is what I was trying to work on.

What bike were you on? Did you happen to see/hear my loud KTM?

It's much better to bump up than to be bumped down bc you have basic things to fix before being in a higher level. Sorry I wasn't able to really ride with you Sat. Next time!
I know, I know. I will just try to ignore the other death trap riders in L1 and attempt to concentrate better. Kinda hard when you have a Busa doing an inside pass in T9 and then he grabs a handful of front brake right in front of you

Yeah, you must have been pitted down from me in the same garage or at least a loud (sweet) KTM was. I was riding the blue spray painted SV650 track motard wannbe. Did not see you out on the track but it was a great ride. I did a little more passing than being passed. I was not using a lap timer, timing my Gopro vids I was around 2:10/ 2:14. Hope to see ya out there.
