had a ton of fun riding riding both Saturday and Sunday! Saturday was a bummer b/c it rained in the morning, but after lunch, it was hot and sunny. I mainly just rode saturday to figure out some suspension stuff and getting used to the bike.

Sunday was sunday funday

The weird part is, it seemed like all the wrecks started happening after it got SUNNY. Other than the bike getting FILTHY the rain riding was actually quite fun. Following instructors on SLICKS at what was a decent pace (for me anyway) gave me a whole new level of confidence in the bike and tires. Avoiding the puddles gave me a chance to work on some alternate lines which became useful once it dried up and we starting making passes. FUN TIMES!

We're you running video in that session that we were passing each other? I think my camera's battery died :( For some reason, I thought I remember running it 2 days without issue - that's not the case.

Maybe. I turned it on to go out and it was off when we came back in.

Glad you guys had a blast. I really wanted to go but couldn't due to family concerns. So, pretty much MSRH is the only track in the Houston area we can have trackdays now?

It was a tough weekend for my electronics... I took a stone right to the camera that cracked my gopro case lens and certain lines down the front straight were bumpy enough to freeze up the accelerometers on my phone and lock up the acquisition data. Lot of fun. I wish I had more time to really work on improving at this track. One more shot with LSTD and then she's gone forever...

Everything you need to quit riding and just edit videos all in the comfort of your smart phone Works better on iphone but I use Android. Only down side its it can't be used in your pocket, it has to be mounted to the the bike somewhere to maintain orientation. Auto syncs with GOPRO and multiple cameras too.
