TWS (Texas World Speedway) Feb 6th recap

I've always considered myself to be an above average street rider and love to ride the twistes so what better way to express myself than the track. I corner worked t8 in the morning and rode the afternoon session. Quite honestly the most fun I've had in a long time, I quickly realized that fast on the street and fast on the track are two different things, i'm not even quick. This was my first time to ride TWS (Texas World Speedway) in six years, back then it was a different layout. Most of my time was spent learning the lines and slowly but surely picking up speed. I think the most important thing I learned is that speed will come with time, for now I can work on my body position and try to find the fastest way around the track. Above all i would like to thank all track day providers, for without them none of this would be possible. I strongly encourage all to try a track day, give it a shot who knows you might like it.
Oh btw the girl on the motard blew by me like i was standing still, there I admitted it. Guess what I still had fun
