Henry, I had a blast riding with you as usual bro... too bad we didn't get to really wick it up together. I'll be there on the 7th, wife gave me the ok! So hopefully we'll be rocking it out there again.

I can't wait to see the vid on something other than a 1 X 1 screen, haha... too bad it was when we were showing Josh around doin 2:18s. Oh well, if we can hook the tank cam up to my bike I'll be more than happy to plop it on my bike and tape some footage of you.

I think the guy on teh green ZX6r was Will if I'm not mistaken... nice guy!

right back atcha man... yeah... didn't get on it too much - but that's ok... don't know if you noticed, but i wasn't walking around much... i sprained my ankle pretty bad about four days before the track day so i was more than happy with our pace... we did nail a couple of 2:10's at least though...

Before I gave back the lap timer to Patrick I scrolled through the times... I got two 2:08s and two 2:09s.... I think that's when I was dicing it up with the guy on the ZX10 and R1.

I'm beginning to wonder if I really did a 2:04.5 last year... I was running really well on Friday and don't think I could has eclipsed my times by that much last year. Hmmmm....

Now that you mention it... you really weren't walking around too much. I bet it hurt quite a bit when honking the bike over in the corners.

Yeah I just checked in, great to see everyone at the track day. I didnt get to walk around the paddock much I was enjoying the time between sessions to relax. Last track day I did the school and it was non-stop riding/class/riding/class. I just felt lucky to be there on Friday, my truck is still out of commission but dhdrider (Jason) was kind enough to let me trailer my bike and ride up with him, thanks Jason!

I had a good time and got faster throughout the day but had my first real o moments at the track. First session in the morning on cold tires, 2nd lap and I almost lost the rear on turn 3. Last session at turn 3 the weirdest thing, I passed my braking marker and my mind went completely blank, didnt know I was even on a bike. I downshifted without blipping the throttle and locked up the rear, almost lost it. Last session of the day weirdness I guess. Hoping to see that one on FZ1moto's video.

I'll be seeing you guys in November!

Had a good time as well. I rode the entire second to last session w/ some other guy on an RC51 who had a lap timer and he said we were turning 2:00 - 2:02's the whole time. Felt pretty good. Especially once the track heated up.

Great to meet up w/ some of the MH guys. Hopefully I can make it out on the 7th...

If that was you on the street (stock body work) RC51 you were moving pretty good... you passed me exiting T6 one time and I stayed with you as long as I could by once we exited the chicane you were gone and I had nothing else for you, haha. You ride real well.

I'll be there in Nov so hopefully we can meet up...
