found my mojo...

found my mojo at TWS (Texas World Speedway) this past saturday....

since last year, i've been having trouble with gettin faster or even going fast for that matter. i had a hard time going left this season....i wasn't doing so good for the first few sessions. after the track got nice and sticky......and i was sitting down talkin with my dallas buddies, it got me thinkin. what have i done since last october that might have effected my riding.....

after turnin knobs on the suspension and adjusting tire pressures and finding something that would work....none of that helped much. so then i adjusted my rearsets down and forward like it was before....and BAM! problem fixed. i guess being comfortable on the bike makes a HUGE difference. i was going 8 seconds faster in the afternoon than the morning, and my left hand turns were gettin strong again.

although i made a small sacrifice in ground clearance, you can't go fast if you're not comfortable doing so. so, i'm ready to go FASTER now!!!

watch out Derek, Jason, and Alonzo.....i'm gunnin for you guys now!
