Totally Stoked!!

Well it was my first weekend back out at the track since my get off on 06.22.08. Going into yesterday I was a little nervous, wondering if I still had it in me to ride hard at the track! I took Sat. to try and fill out my physical limitations! That didn't take long... I found out real quick that the right handers were gonna be tough!!! I went out today and told myself that I was gonna push it a little! I waited til the afternoon and just let it rip!! I was able to run a 1:57! I was very happy that I was able to get under two minutes at MSRH!!! So I got the fear out of my head and now I just have to wait for my body to catch up!!!

Yeah but who was that who droped your bike chasing a lil 50 around the track on the parade lap ... I think that you should have beat his and the dude on the 50

Crashing on the parade lap

I threw some things when I thought my day was done, but the Carl came to the rescue with some zip ties and I all smiles again!!!

I just wish I would have had my timer on yesterday when the beacon was messed up and had some folks going 1:33's and such! Who knows I may have been in a 1:47!! NOT!!!

Thanks! Honestly for a while there I didn't think I would ever get back on!! Tim kept telling me I would but for a while there I wasn't so sure!!! I am glad I got back out there because if I hadn't I know I would regret it in the long run!

that will teach you to paint your bike and bring it to the track how bad was the damage? I did not get to see it after any pics not trying to make it a big thing I had fun in corner 9

Not a big deal at all!!

The bike only has a couple minor scratches and I tail section snapped at the bolts! Zip tied that on and I was good to go!! Tim on the other hand got knocked silly for a few moments and knocked his elbow out of socket!! Once that got popped back in he was better, he was even a tropper and rode 3 sessions this morning!!! I am just happy I have material to pick on him about for a LONG time to come!!!
