I'm going to try to give some real advice:

For a guy like Joe, who has skills, the key to a fun track day will be bike set-up and track selection, not trackday organization. Having your suspension set-up for the track, making sure your stunt cage doesn't drag in turns, having your bars at a street angle, not stunt, and making sure your gearing isn't too low allows you to enjoy the track. Tanking a +10 rear would work at GSS, +5 at MSRH, but anything more than +2 or +3 will suck at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

You've deleted things said about LSTD when you were a mod.

i'm not about to debate this with you, it's useless b/c you can't seem to find a second leg to stand on, you're too inconsistent with everything you do here. delete all you want, WE expect that of you and your cronies. ahh, feel the power, it's wonderful.

the phone only rang once on my end BTW.

i believe that i was fair in all that i did while being a mod too. some of this stuff in just personal b/s, but of course WE can't see anything that has been tampered with so how are we to know the actual truth in the matters?

you and your croanies editing our post's , that's what i'm talking about. you take away the edit feature, i think of all of the forums that i frequent, this is the only site which sees it fit that we can't edit our own posts. another great example of your political bullshitt. does that help you understand any better? if not, just forget about it before your brain explodes. I am out, i have a physics test to conduct now.

this is exactly why i quit the trackday org thing....until the dusts settles, i'll be on the sidelines watching the game.

there's too much involved when in the end, we are all friends with common interests.
