You'll enjoy PTT events as Michael has a great crew and cast.

even though you didn't ride it was still a good idea to go to the track and check things out and how they're organized....more people that are thinking about doing a track day but are reluctant to sign up for that "first" date would put themselves at ease by doing what you did...congrats and goodluck on the 17th.

big d- havent met mark yet, though i'm sure i will. there was some dude on a blue 10r with race fairings that would wheelie over turn 5 almost every lap; it was AWESOME!

pongo- thats exactly why i went. i wanted to check it out before i dove in. i was a little nervous about goin, bein to slow and what not. after seein it though, i know i can keep up easily in the c group. some dudes looked like they'd barely ridden before!! either way its gonna be a blast!

I did my first trackday at MAM in Iowa on April 1. I did the oreintation school through Track Addix. I have never had so much fun. I hated to put the the 10 back to street legal, but it is how I get to work.

I saw your pics on KCSB... I rode a 10 as a track bike in 04 and 05. I have an 05 636 now though. The 10 is a wicked bitch of a track bike. MAM is a great track to learn on. Did Spooner show you the ropes? LOL! I'm hyperspd7 on the KCSB board by the way...

You going to HPT on Monday the 14th?

Because wheelie!!!

Spooner showed me a few things, but Dueser was my teacher for the day. A great experience. I am "Spicoli" on kcsb too......
