I'm glad you all had a good time! I can't wait to go for a track day.

Steve, What happened? Did you go down or what? How did you break your pinky?

I have a hitch on mine and I pull my single bike trailer no problem. I was in one of the motard guys.

I have one of the fold up trailers you buy on line. I put it up against my garage wall when I don't use it. The accord pulls it no problem.

You guys are always so attentive to the new riders I can't wait to get the r6 rebuilt and hit that track pipe for the first time, instead of just getting the contact high from the sidelines...:icon_bigg:icon_bigg:icon_bigg

Riding back for me wasn't that bad, I got in between these 2 big pickups that were doing 90 and just followed them in. I live right before downtown in the trey, so it was a 25 min STRAIGHT drive.

I would prefer to drive but since I have no truck and no hitch on the accord, I have to depend on either hitching a ride or riding myself, and I'm not convienent to any of U to hitch with ya. I didn't participate in the very last session, cause I knew i'd need the energy to get home.

Luckily i had stretched appropriately and been taking potassium all week so my muscles weren't nearly as fatigued as they were my 1st time out there, as long as I kept moving.

Now today they are hella sore!!!

I found a bottle in Wal-Mart at the bottum of the vitamin section, and the directions say take 1 with a meal everyday unless directed by a dr. i had been taking 1/day and 2 every other day for the last week, just to build it up in my system. I don't remember the brand name, but potassium is potassium, i'm sure u can find em at CVS and Walgreens.

I feel like they really helped me.

I want to thank all the LMS instructors especially Alonzo for going all out and making the day a great learing experience.:notworthy We definitely will be making another track day in the near future. It seemed to me like everyone improved their riding abilities as the day progressed. I'm sure everyone would have loved to ride more if it wasn't so hot.:BangHead: I wanted to go for another spin around the track but I didn't want to push my luck. I'd rather leave in a good note and save it for another day. Keep up the good work.

I missed trackday! A family emergency with my wife. I heard about this from a friend in Spring, Texas. I had decided to go and drive to spend the week in Houston but now I am curious to see how it go? How many riders? Is it purely riding or is there any stunting as well? I will be in Houston in a few weeks is there a particular place for stunting every one hangs out at?

I was on the red and black aprilia that Larry borrowed. That is me on his bike in the pictures of him coming onto the front straight. I'm the slow one.
