I can't pick out one best moment riding with buddies; I've only been riding a year, and it's ALL good.

Come to think of it, today was a good day- I bought a grown-up bike!

Riding the R6 & the 6R back to back on the track in Vegas comes to mind. The weather was perfect...the mountains in the background...the jets from Nellis flying in formation over head...

My favorite, most fun, most memorable time on two wheels...

That's tough! I think it's when you get "that feeling" at the track. You never know when you will get it but all of a sudden things seem to click. You have your turn in and braking points nailed. You stop guessing about down shifts for the next turn. Things just seem to flow. You are braking a bit deeper. Your tires are gripping better than you thought possible and you are leaning a bit more than you were last session. At the end of your session you feel simply AWESOME and all the preparation and expense for a track day is a distant memory because it's well worth it.

It is that feeling that you remember when you get back on the street and just think "Oh, yeah, I'm on the street..... Oh well, I'll be on the track again soon."

Riding on the way to the three sisters on the 337 with my friend. Didn't even get all the way there with our time limit, but even that was enough to have goosebumps up my spine. I SOOOOOO Wish we had really good 20-35max speed twisties right in houston area... Fm 3090 is decent, but a good little ride to get to, and it is still not at the 20mph rated curves....

When I get the goosebumps knowing I'm about to ride with some buddies for a long/fast ride..

The first high speed turn I took. I never thought I could lean like that!

I dont really have a best time. Anytime I am on two wheels and riding with others I can say that is my best time.... So I have a lot of favorites.

I do really love riding with the regulars through the forest, and meeting the new ones coming out to see why we love that route so much. Those are my favorite days.

I have been bitten by the track bug and starting to do that a little more as well, so that is fun hanging out in the Paddocks with everyone and then riding your bike on the track with everyone.
