Hey Logan If you're talking about the XR650R Motard that was me. If it is me you're talking about then you're the first one to say it sounded awesome everyone else just said it was loud as heck.

Yeah I'll bet you'd have a real hard time lifting that arm today. Man I hope you get taken care of quick Mike. I'm really sorry that happened to you.

Mike, it sucks that you were the nice guy by introducing others to the track, and you were the one who got hurt.


It's true; "No good deed goes unpunished".

Holy t that was fun!
I got to see Eric (move your to the west side dude), Thomas, Mate Mike, Lisa and Tim, Rob, and a few others. I'll post the pics my gf took as soon as I replace the card adapter that Barnaby chewed up. Thanks to Buck and everyone for a great day. Big ups to Dr. Gonzo for helping me past a plateau in my skill level I never thought I'd break. I'm 39 and ridden since I was 12, but for years now I have been in a rut that Gonzo helped me past in 10 minutes.
Wow. Thanks guys!
and Meaners' pics and Witchdoc's wifes' shots are awesome! I will post my chicks pics under a different name, most of them are of half a bike, part of a tire, empty carousel....
Hope Mike feels better, that sucks.

thanks for the pics everyone.......awesome quality from all.

i'm looking forward to seeing all you guys and gals at the next trackday. as dr. gonzo said.....it was good seeing all the old friends, and meeting a few new ones. now everybody be safe...

and remember before you go out on your next SMR.....remember your friend that went down at the track, it could be you on the street....except you may not walk away from it like they did at the track.

please be safe out thtere....i know its hard to ride safe on the streets after learning so much good stuff about you, your bike, and the proper ways of riding the bike.

come on out to the next Longhorn Motorcycle School trackday on March 23rd and we'll hone your skills some more....so you can lean like a spider monkey like me

Track day today...

SBK those are some great pics. Looks like you busted Derek, Jason, and I on a few hot laps. Great pic of the three of us all lined up on entry. That pic of Tony HOP is body position 101. Looking good Tony.
