Had a great time on my first track day, sunday, I have to say thanks to my instructer for helping me with my lines. I was one of the fastest in the C group but my lines sucked first session, by the end of the day I had them down pretty good.

Good on ya! All of the noobs and other c group folks were a LOT faster in the pm fo sho! Good job

As far as the transition to the straight and the pavement in the chicane, while I think that the sealer in the chicane entrance needs a repave too- it's more of a good line issue in those spots than the pavement itself. If you are getting upset that much (suspension wise) coming on to the track, you're too low in the line. Same with the sealer in the entrance to the chicane, that would be a very late apex if you're going over that spot... you could come in earlier and hit the next corner more shallow for a better drive on to the straight

All in all, a great couple of days all the way around! Thanks for all the kudos from you guys and gals, we really appreciate your consistent business!

I did try several lines thru there and some were better than others fo sho, but never did find anything really good, but it was a great day and will be back more often thanks to the crew and the cornerworkers and other riders, what fun

if you would have followed me through there, you'd be faster in that section but i think you were a little concerned with more important things. get a track bike and then you won't have so much ($) to worry about

I think its more about Risk Management, I,m not at a point in my life where I wanna risk that much to be a little faster, I,ve gotten a little older, and crashing sux, Just ask many others on here:/:

back to the drawing board young grasshopper.... J/K!

You hear it time and time again....fast on the street isn't fast on the track. You certainly seemed to ride at a "faster" street pace when I rode group rides than you did at the track, but I only got to see you running in one turn...

I hear ya on the Risk Management....cars don't get fixed by themselves, huh?

Good to see you out there regardless though.

Yeah man, you can count on it!

You can actually bring them out to any "c" group if you want, heck, if you can run the pace, you can run that bike in the "b" or "a" too!
