that's the spirit, i've been through 3 crashes and after the 1st one....

you'll have a mental barrier to cross, but once you cross that barrier, you will no longer fear the crash AS MUCH. considering your spill earlier in the day....you still looked great out there for the remainder of the day. still progressing and holding solid lines....you get an "A" in my book.

after my first crash, i was shaken up, and rode horribly afterwards....you did the complete opposite. good job brotha. hope to see you out on the (sunday) mar 23rd trackday. LMS will help you get past that mental barrier and get you flying out there.

That guy was CRAZY FAST!! But then, almost everyone out there was faster than me!

Man, I remember a time when I had this "No Fear" attitude, but now I'm like "Man, if I crash :/: , it's gonna hurt."

I need to do some more trackdays to get myself comfortable and confident, 'cause I knew I could go faster, but I had that little bit of restraint holding me back. I think I did well, though, but I know I could do better

I did my first full session at 2pm, and was scared coming over the launch and then flopping from right to left. . . which is where I lost the front earlier. At the 3pm session I started getting over the crash and picked up a bit of speed. The last session I believe it was I felt fine, for being my first time on a track anyways.

At least there are good pics of me that show my body position(something I've never seen) so I'll be able to see how bad it really is, and adjust accordingly. I think I REALLY need to work on lines as well, so I'll be asking an instructor, or you if you're out there to tow me around for 2-3 laps.After that it's just stringing everything together fluidly.

I too thought you looked great out there David, although my opinion might be a little biased

I need to start getting out there more so I'll eventually grow some nerve to hit the track.

ohh, and who was the real slow guy on the gangsta lookin gixxer?? He needs to get off the track!


I keeeeed, Ralphy, I keeeeed!!

sorry i didn't get to meet you in the paddocks, i'll be sure to walk around next time. i had some bike problems and stomach problems throughout the day , but i'll catch you on the next trackday logan.

you ask how long before you get that good....at the rate you progressed throughout the day.....not too far fetched. i tailed you a few times and from the morning session til the end, you got faster and faster, looked WAY more comfortable by the last few sessions. keep comin out with LMS trackdays, and you'll ride like a pro in no time.

Man, no kidding x2. It was awesome being on the same track at the same time with you guys! Just watching and learning right in the middle of the action sorta speak!! I appreciate all the instruction, both on and off the track, and I am definitely hooked on getting my track on more often!
