I'll be there! Can't miss the 3.1, they don't run it often enough.

Still waiting for what the forcast shows tommorrow before I sign up though.

Thanks man. I may be able to just walk it off.
I look forward to meeting some of the other Texas doods from 10r.net at some of the trackdays in the future!

lol Thanks for the weather report!

If you haven't already watched them, there's some good vids of the 3.1 on Youtube. I like to familiarize myself with them before I go to a new track. BTW there's some blind corners on this layout.

I prefer the car vids to the MCs, it's easier to see the track when it stays level.

I never saw you out there Andy, but it was really crowded... 45 people per group x 4 groups so it figures we never ran into each other. I ended up riding till about 3 and then on the last lap of the session in turn 19 I pulled in the clutch and my bike just died. Absolutely no power, got home and the battery only has 2.3 volts. Got some work to do on it I guess, but I had a blast. Can't wait for the bike cam video of me and my pics next week.

I never saw you either. And your bike and trailer were parked not too far from me! I think I might have had the best trackday ever. By the end of the day I was passing everyone that had been passing me in the morning.

That sucks about your bike, hope it's an easy fix.

I think it should be pretty easy to fix... dead battery, possibly a dead regulator rectifier, the battery is only a few months old so there is likely a charging problem. It was hot out there today, but man was it fun. I too was improving rapidly, glad you had a great day out there.

I did not meet any houston boys, hardly met anyone. I guess that goes with the territory though since Levels one and two are in class when we are not on the track. I think I will be in level 2 next time though since I was seriously being held back by some really slow riders and it was killing my momentum.

I will be back to one of them in July for sure... just not sure which one yet.

I will post up the video and pics when I get them.

I forgot about those classes, those do take up all your free time.

Duran, not sure about any track days but my first race will be out there July 11, 12.
