Time to get back to the track!
« on: May 20, 2012, 08:50:37 PM »
Heading back to the track for the first in about 23 months  :thumb
Hitting the WERA race at BHF early next month!  But it'll be interesting as I haven't been "on track" at BHF since my accident in 2008...

Damn, man, has it really been 23 months since the last time you rode on a track? That's nuts. Congrats on getting back out there, hope you have a blast, and a safe day out there.   ;D

WOW...  I was rusty,  Took a full day just to get comfortable at anything resembling speed... and even then I was around 10 seconds off my pace from 2008.  But had a great weekend!

Which one do ya think... the CBR...
I don't have a camera, and after seeing about 6-8 fall off on track over the weekend, I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon.  But there should be a vid with about 3 seconds of me in it getting uploaded tonight, maybe...

LOL.. Yea, I sold my 05 CBR race bike 3-4 years ago...

True... I did have my trusty roll of yellow Duct tape with, so I probably would have been fine!
