Greetings. I was directed to this website on my last track day, apparently being a member affords one a small discount.

The usual stats, I've been riding for four years, and recently decided to do most of my riding at the track or on long trips. For the latter, I recently rode from Vancouver, Canada to Houston, Texas. This means that I am a new resident (although I am actually from California).

See you at the track.

Thanks, everyone. Yup, that trip was mostly epic, but keep in mind that I paid for it with a long Canadian winter (long by my perspective).

So when will I be seeing you at the track again? You were looking very good out there! Very nice lines and consistent! Two things very important to track riding!!!

My crazy plan is to get to all the Houston area track days. I haven't been to Grandsport yet, but I'll be there this weekend. See you all there!

You gotta make a "How-to" video on that wooden rear stand.
I would probably drop my bike if I tried it.

LOL! The prospect of having to lube the chain by slowly wheeling the bike forward was the only thing standing between me and that trip. I use my improvised stand even when I need to change tires.
