    I believe many Harley guys spend more time revving their engines than actually driving anywhere; I sometimes wonder why they bother to have wheels on their motorcycles.

    Started at 41 degrees and got better from there. The track warmed up quickly and traction was o.k.
    A little bit windy but not too bad.
    I had a really good time with no scary moments.
    It got even better when we were allowed to pass.
    Thanks Mase for making it possible for me.

    Thumbs up

    Well another Great Track Day was enjoyed by everyone!
    Congrats also to Alex for being upped to Level2

    Had a great time seeing everyone and taking pictures as well.Day started cold and making the track kinda slick.
    As day warmed up so did the speed of riders.
    Look forward to making more track days for 2011!
    Not a problem Mark, and you DID get to make your Post- Thanksgiving Ride after all!
    Also got to meet Dave from Houston TSBA Chapter on a very nice red Ducati 749! Dave is a cool guy. The bike looks real nice! Makes me want to paint my track skins red! Which I think I will do!
    Finally meeting Randal was cool. Man is he fast on that Busa!

    Yup. Mark sure makes it looks easy tossing the ST around such a tight track like Harris Hill!

    All I saw were the bad lines I was running.
    In case you didn't see it, I almost went mowing coming down the hill in the left. Gladly, that was the only time I blew that line though, tires weren't giving me a whole lot of help.
    Putting fresh tires tomorrow
