We went to bed at 9 and I took good pain killers that had me sleep all night through until the alarm at 6:30. It felt way to early.

Everyone looked great out there. Lots of folks improved over the day and it was fun to watch.

I took some pics that I'll try to post this evening.

It was nice meeting new folks and put faces to names.

Gavin had a blast. Alonzo was a great help for him and he learnt a lot.

This was the best 180 something dollars i have ever spent. Buck really helps you out when he knows you need improvement. When he stressed that if your chin is not where its supposed to be when leaning, I tried it on the track and that actually made me lean lower.

At first its scary to lean so low but I cant wait to go to the next track and improve my lean more!

Thanks a million to Buck and all of our instructors who demand more of us, you guys go the extra mile to teach us and under these extreme heat conditions.

It was also great meeting some of you guys!

Fight The Chaos, I was jealous when I saw two Ninja250s out there. They must've been a blast on that track. When I was riding it back in March, I wished my Ninja back bad.

You looked really good out there! I even saw you hang off at the end of the day.

Thanks! I cant thank enough how great the instructors were, each time i got on the track i got better on my leans going my own pace and close to the end, i started hanging off my bike more which is something Buck stressed. When i get my 636, I plan on buying a brand new 250 and taking it to the track. These bikes really give you alot of help to learn how to lean lower.

When the instructor showed me how to lean properly, i was amazed at how much you stress your legs and rarely ever grip your handlebars...but just to guide it enough. Thanks Faylaricia. I cant wait for the next track meet. But this time, i'm bringing a trailer.

I don't know. There were a few blue bikes out there and they are hard to differentiate. Larry was standing at the wall as well, after his hang-off session and evaluating everyone critically (you all thought he wasn't gonna watch, hm?)

You can check the pics when I get them posted up. What leathers and helmet (color) were you wearing?

I did, the heat was crazy, i thought the wind would make me cooler but it was hot wind, it sucked and fatigue was settling in on the straight road.

I thought of leaving with Candy, Logan and Steve but I left as soon as I bought a CD of pictures. Sorry guys.
