THANKS

To my friend Chris for hauling me and my bike up to the track

To Tony for helping me out as always

To Steve at Comfort suites for the hook up price.

To Tom Anderson for critiquing my (bad) riding habits

To James for towing me around for what I think was my fastest lap out at TWS (Texas World Speedway)... ever.

and to all of the guys at LSTD, for putting on a great day...

Tony is the man! Tom and the entire LSTD staff for putting up a great event(even though we got screwed out of a session for some odd reason), Moody for being the DJ and all the other people at the event making it an awesome day!

I'm beat.

No Biggie Tom didn;t mean to make it sound that way just a little tired when I got in and meant it in pun.

Man I'm freakin beat today.

Awesome time with some great guys and gals!

Although I was whooped before I even made it to the track and it affected my riding all day. I think this was one of the best track days I have had in a long time. It seemed like it was one big event with just friends. Every where I walked there were people saying Hi, Waiving, Smiling and Being courteous on and off the track.

Thank You LSTD!

Thank You Brandon and Motorcycles Unlimited for setting me up with the best suspension I have ever been on and tweaking it till my little heart was happy. Although I was out of energy to fully enjoy it.

Thank You Martin for towing my up there and making me look like I was slow as molasses in winter.

Thank You Tony for the lunch!

Thank You Andre3k for the pit space and letting me borrow your tools.

Thank You Albert for working the gate the way you do for all your buddies. It is sad that you did not make it home the way you left but, I am glad you had some of the best people I know stop to help you. Get well soon!

Thank You James for not kicking my for holding your front stand hostage for 2 weeks.

... and thanks to everybody else for making it a great day at the track.

Yes I had a great time out there yesterday. My best T-day of the year to date. My legs feel it today.

Love to thank the LSTD guys for being their best. Had some great talk and better understandings with whats going on as far as the politics of the orgs.

Maybe I really don't bring the rain after all.....

Finally have the Provnov back and can have some fun again. I will see you guys at the races asap!

It was great seeing you seeing more faces fromMH out there. See you guys soon.

Where were you in the mock race? You weren't the one I was waiting for on the front straight were you?

It was fun, hot, and I felt truly honored to work with some great folks!

he punked us on the race, a late arrival. i slowed up to work with the two slower guys in the race, wish it would've been more of a battle instead of a no-contest race!

Haven't had time to take apart the bike and put on the spare frame. So i rode a clunker that was losing bodywork throughout the day. This MotoGp machine hadn't been rode or tuned 3 years lol. The tires are just as old. I'm just happy I survived.

I like my tires like McDonald's burgers.....nice n greasy!

At the end of the day, you were running great! After I followed your "imposter" for 5 or 6 laps and finally got back on to the actual you, I'm pretty sure you were running in the 2:10 range and very consistent.

You did a real good job getting through traffic with clean passes, and aside from a couple of little things to work on, you looked very smooth and comfortable all day. That's actually the first thing I noticed in the first session was that you are a smooth rider out there
