I had a blast!!!!

What a awesome day it turned into on the NOOB track day 4-26!
I can not give enough thanks to Mike (04RSVR) for sponsoring me and Buck for putting this thing on and sponsoring a noob also, these two guys rock in my book and I am forever greatful!!!
It was a real pleasure to get out there and ride with all the really cool people that showed up to ride, and to learn as much as I did from all the lightning fast professionals that were there just for that reason - they were so thorough I only asked one question (due to my hearing) and the rest was packed into my head by every instructor that walked by!
Mr. Houseofpain (Tony) told me when I'm finished all I had to do is close my eyes and think about what happened,
well he wasn't kidding - I can remember every entry point, every lean angle into every turn, and every gear into and out of the entire track then open my eyes and look at your watch and it's a lap! WOW!!!!
Thanks again to everyone (especially Mike) for this great experience, I will rave about it for a long time to come!
I have some pics and vids I will post later so check back later...
Thanks again!

Warp was hauling azz out there for sure. I had fun battling with Chad and his motard...I was smiling the entire time!

Here are a few pics that David took. I never knew the F4 (or my Goomara as I call her) had it in her. I remember thinking going into some of the turns, "man, what would my friends back home think of me doing this?" Then I would smile...

It was definitely a good time. I wish the rain would have stopped sooner but it ended up to be a awesome day. I wanted another session but I was still happy.

Hey Warpbender. Gotta move them toes up. You're better of dragging knee than you toes.

Hey Gisi. Good to see you made it out okay on your last session. Cleaned the bike off yet?

I'm the guy with the 929 and my brother had the same bike with the home made bike ramp if you recall.

I gotta say I didn't mind a bit "watching" you zing around those turns!
It was nice to finally meet you both!

I'm so sorry Dr. Gonzo I was in such a hurry to post I skipped right past a great big thanks to you, Irish, and the rest of the instructors guiding all of us through a safe and fun learning experience I will never forget!

Hey thanks man it was a pleasure to be on the same track with you, even though I almost wiped us both out on turn17 you pulled through like a champ!
