First time on a road track! (MSR)

OMG had a blast. Buck Beasley took me under his wing for the day and gave my the 5 cent tour of the track. Im pretty impressed.

here is a 1 lap vid i made http://motohouston.com/chris/trackda...ckdayfinal.wmv

dont laugh too hard, it was my first time to ride like this. Got to say though, I have no strips left on my new tire

I might have ran harder if i was used to the track and didnt want to make a fool out of my self the first time out:laughing6

anyhow....cant wait to go back

THANX BUCK

If your vid cam has image stabilization that will help with the shakiness on the video. Good job tho.

Yeah, I was out there about 11:00 and stayed for a couple hours. Weren't you the one carrying the front wheel down the front straight?
I'm gonna try bringing both bikes down there later this year, I've got to get a little more comfortable with the RC first.

I posted on the stunters board and didn't get much response, so we'll see how the stunters go. BBQ looks like a go, we just need to nail down the date, so far looks like July the 8th but I'm trying to get a weekend date sooner than that. Don't forget to sign up for the July weekend soon if you are interested as it is already half full and it's a few months away. Imagine a full weekend at the track.............. now wipe off the drool and get signed up!!

Saturday was my first time on the track too (Red White & Black CBR600F3). Had a lot of fun out there and will be back in April. I'll DEFINATELY upgrade my brake system before then - turn 1 will bite you.
