This is the best thing I could have done on my bike all summer long!

I was waitlisted so I missed the 1st 2 sessions but still worth the cash. I went out with one of the instructors to show me the lines at a slower pace, I missed that with the 1st session, to get a feel for the track. I have to admit I was the slowest person on the track.

Every session I went out on I did get faster. Aaron/NightstalkerR1 passed me on the big straight and I was able to keep up only a few seconds behind him for most of the lap.

I learned a lot about my ability and my bikes power and turning. By the end of the day, I was racing much better and had an extremely fun time. We even got to ride in the rain. That was pucker factor fun!

I think that l8-apex said it right save it for the track. You can do stuff that you will never be able to do in the street. There are way too many factors out there and the track eliminates all but you, your bike, and the other riders.

Someone else needs to post pics I was busy racing!

Oh... it was the Yamaha thing. No wonder it went in one ear and out the other.

And we weren't talking about such Yamaha things.
