No slack needed - the pictures are great... Don't know how she managed to take 250+ photos and not get G-Man in there somewhere. Honest! We couldn't find one. No harm. I took TONS - Just need access to them.

it's always nice to be able to put a face to the name ... it was pretty much a MH meet and greet today out there. Your 650R sounds awesome ... I could always tell when you were about to pass me.

I did slow it down once I got back out on the track for the first few laps until I got some heat in the tires. Then I sped up. . . . .and I'm pretty sure I passed you(several times) I made a dumb mistake, got back out there, and had a blast.

Maybe you need to speed it up.
