LMS 6/30 thanks

Thanks to the usual suspects for another good day at MSRH. Not sure what is up with trackdays in Texas all getting rain this year, but the open track til 11am was nice, and I got 150+ miles in myself. Good to see the regular crowd back in action and flowing smoothly. AS ALWAYS, thanks to Alanzo, Derek, Jason, Larry, Alan, and Bill D. for keeping things moving along and picking up the few pieces we had today. One big crash that ended up with a pretty trashed bike, but a healthy rider and a few other low sides everyone walked away from. Never rolled the ambulance or the crash truck though, so that makes it a GREAT day. Thanks everyone, see you on 7/14!!!

Had a great time! I left a little early, but mainly legs were like rubber, and the heat became a little intense for me, but I got my fix, socialized with some awesome people as always! Until next time!

Hey Chris, got an pics of GixxerBill and his awesome power wheelies on pit straight? Man, the power on that bike of his..........almost sounds like he's cluchin' up whoolies, but I know he wouldn't do that. That 1k must make AMA HP................... Or maybe he's just spent too much time on the wing.

Yeah turn one tricked me. I made a stupid mistake. I took the turn as hard as possible but dove in a split second to early. When I hit the apex I knew it was over because I was going to run wide. I would have stood it up but I saw the tires and tried to get a leaner angle. No bueno . So the front went out and that was it. I should have been more patient. I made a rookie mistake for my first time this track. But I ran very well up to that point. My bike handled awesome and as soon as the track dried up I learned all the lines very quick. I was having a problem with turn one and approaching the chicane on the back side.

Buck I tried to follow u and get a tow to help me when we were out there and you kept waving me by. I tried to get someone to help me in the 3rd session but I kept passing everybody up till I crashed. Iím ok and it shouldn't be too much to get the bike back on the track. I still had a blast haha.

There were too many doing wheelies on the straight. I have to practice and go with the flow.

Had a great time as always! Thanks Buck and the gang - "Alonzo, Derek, Jason, Larry, Alan, and Bill D." I got to ride plenty, and the last session before the rain was AWESOME summertime riding - cool temps, overcast skies, dry - sticky track, full half hour - "ON THE GAS", and good company. Doesn't get much better than that! See yall on the 14th!

Mark I kept waving you by since it was wet and you should have followed the example. I saw you look up the inside on FOUR bikes exiting the keyhole setting up for the launch(in the wet!) and knew you were new and would be crashing. You should have spent more time with me or one of the other instructors to really get the line down, I watched you a few turns and you're quite a bit off where you should have been. It's a tricky track that lulls you into a false confidence very quickly. Turn one there is one of, if not the most difficult turn of any track I have ridden. Next time get some help from one of the instructors or myself before you tear off to set the new track record. Glad you came out alright. Who did you ask for help in the third session?

your right. i was rushing to fast. my natural tendency. i didnt personaly ask for instruction in the 3rd session. i didnt want to bother anybody just yet untill i felt comfortable on my bike, which i will add came very quick. my set up for that track was almost dialed perfect except for i needed to drop a tooth in the rear. by no means am i that fast but i kept looking for someone who was and get behind them in the 3rd. follow them for a bit and then talk to instructors before the 4th. i figured that would be the smartest plan so we would go out and know exactly where im struggling and what to watch for and work on. but when the track dried up and people started movin i was looking for the fastest guys an i kept running them down. then i made that noob mistake. the turn wasnt that hard for me originally in previous laps. it was seeing the tires that freaked me out when i was going wide. i figured out in the 2nd session, if you screw up turn 1 your setup for turn 2 will throw off your whole lap time. so i was making it a mission to get that turn down right away. oops

very fun track! not oak hill but very fun! i will be back asap. but im going to quit trying to prove something cause its getting expensive haha.

Smartest thing I've seen posted in a long while. Always remember that when you think you're really haulin' the mail, there are at least ten guys out there that will spank you like a red headed stepchild whenever they feel like it. Goes for any track really. Point is there is always someone faster than you, ride to YOUR ability. Chasing the fast guys without asking them or letting them know you're there is a sure recipe for a crash. Watch them for as few turns, then let 'em go and wait for another to come by and show you something else. Was looking to run with you in the afternoon, I never miss a chance to run with a CMRA'er and see what the novice ranks is offering up talent wise these days. Get the bike fixed and come on out again.

i think you might have seen me looking at the transitions between the patches around the track. i was also feeling for bumps in the 2nd session while it was simi wet still. i was kinda all over the place and probably looked silly to anybody watchin. i knew you were behind me and figured you knew what i might be thinking.
