Road America

Well I had a blast up at road America both at the AMA races and the track day afterwards. RA is a fun track with 3 really fast "straights" and lots of different turns. I really feel like I made leaps and bounds in my riding up there between confidence in the corners and rolling on the throttle earlier and more aggressively. Despite the rain and mechanical issues it was the most fun I've had on a bike. STT was nice enough to give me a full refund in store credit, they don't do many tracks in the area so I plan on heading to barber motorsports park at some point. If you're interested in coming shoot me a pm.

2nd session of the day. Fastest lap 2:59

Last session of the first day. Fastest lap 2:43



Comments are welcomed. Sarcasm is ok but only if it's funny and you include helpful comments as well.

Yeah hitting 150 mph 3 times a lap was fun. Really helped with my braking. The carousel was a ton of fun too.
