Glad you enjoyed it Steve. Listening to you talk about how much you enjoyed the day is exactly why I sponsor NOOBs. I know how much I love riding on the track and I want to help other experience it.

To other NOOBs,
Get out there! Yes it costs a bit of money to do it but the experience will change your view of motorcycles is a great way!

Don't believe Steve or me?

He was there too!

Great pics, Warpbender! Thanks! You kept passing me on the straights and all I could think of was....."-it! My bike must be slow!" You looked very comfortable riding that thing!

When I first saw that photo, I thought my chin spoiler was missing. I phoned the wife and had her check to make sure it didn't fall off. HA! It's still there.
Thanks, again! If you haven't already, check out www.pixxbytango.com for more photos. He's slowly putting more photos in as the days go by and it's only Tuesday. Lot's of pics of Warpbender, Logan and others are already there. Take a look!

What an awesome time, it sounds like! I can't wait to try that some time soon! How do we learn about when the NOOB days are?

Warpbender - how many years you been riding before this? Were you more comfortable pushing around the corners than you would have been on the street? How long did it take you to 'get up to speed'?

Man! That sounds like it was fun!

Street riding isn't the same, is it now?

Boring if you ask me...........

I gave up street riding after I moved back down here to Houston.......riding places like Deals Gap and country side North Carolina was as different to riding around here as the track is to the street in general. But with saying that, I would give up The Dragon and NC twisties for the track any day of the week, and twice on Sunday!
