What's up man!!! Hey, I haven't forgotten you or the pictures. I was there at the track with you in the Novice group. You were definitely going well.
I rode Sunday in Novice as well, mainly because of the instructor to rider ratio, and it was my first weekend ever on a track. Sunday was awesome, and for the first time in my life I was scraping my pucks during the session before lunch.
It was short lived though, because I took the bike back out after lunch and the front plowed like a John Deere anytime I tried to run a decent pace. It was a bum deal, and I ran the session after lunch, and 3 laps of the next session after making and air pressure adjustment to the front tire. I put the bike in the trailer because I almost lost the front so many times it ain't even funny.
I just figured it was a tire issue, but after some inspection there may be an issue with the forks. I am working with Ken on getting this resolved though.
Even though my bike went away on me at the end, up to that point I was having a damned great time. It was cool to meet you and we gotta do it again. Those 10Rs go good out there, and definitely can motor down that front stretch banking.
Like I said, we gotta do it again man!!!!
