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!!!
WOW! thats awesome candie! sounds like you r the fastest chick on the track

Yes sir. I'm sorry. Actually paint job and bike held up great. Took all the damage to my noggin. Just wish I could remember what happened. Don't remember anything. Now I have to get a new helmet and get back out there so I can keep up with Candie.

Hooray for Candie !! Working the grid gives me the opportunity to watch all the riders. You have always been one of the smoothest on the track. Yesterday, I could tell that you were very near pre-crash form. Probably the only reason I noticed that you still favor the shoulder, is because I knew what to look for.

It sure was great having you back girl! It just hasn't been the same without you!

1:57 That's awesome! I know you have it in you to go faster too! It's amazing how shifting gears drops your lap times.

Wrong. Yet to break it that slipper clutch. That's a 1:57 without shifting!

I confess it is true!!! Me and my RR can run a 1:52 w/o shifting at MSRH, that is my best time!! Now for me to do any better than that then I gotta put that slipper clutch to good use!
