Thanks for the good times *Cresson*

Little bit of rain but it dried quick.
Thanks to all of the good guys who I seem to meet at every event and very nice meeting new faces.
Special thanks to the LSTD team for the oprotunity to help out.

And to all the hood rats who scouted the lead on some of the BEST BBQ in Texas :yum:

I can't wait to do it again!

Good Times!

The weather was not cooperating in the morning but, it turned out to be a nice day in the afternoon. I finally got to ride the new track at Cresson and it is insane fun. Thanks to all the LSTD guys for the opportunity to come out for work and play time. I can’t wait till the next round but, it is sad to think we are almost done with another season of riding.

Erik and Jason did a great job out there!

I tell you what though, it's funny how everyone came out after lunch when the rain was consistently stopped. I didn't think we had that many people there! Next thing you know, all three groups are full.

Despite the rain, there were no real crashes- some low-sides that were a result of rain and poor throttle control, but nobody got hurt and (except for 3 1098s...) none of the bikes really had any damage.

Turned out to be a great afternoon, and I think that those that rode in the rain really appreciated the dry afternoon. Only a couple of people bailed without riding, I think they all realized that indeed this is Texas, and if you don't like the weather; stick around, it'll change.

I'd like to thank all the cornerworkers who showed up and "weathered" the "storm" out there!

Big thanks to Erik, Jason and Glenn for all the help and fast learning! By TWS (Texas World Speedway), you guys will be seasoned pros!

Regarding the "end of the season"... keep your ears open for an additional trackday or possibly TWO more after the official season is over!

My bike is like "home". His was cool but new and unfamiliar. I would race one without thinking twice. But I cant really compare it accurately since I didnt try pushing it.

I don't know if I ever got a chance to tell you... but I tested a 636 tricked with ohlins and brakes etc. at msr-h a few months ago. I'm going to go with Buck and do the '07 600rr. I really liked that 636 and feel like I could really improve on that bike.
