First track day

After reading and receiving the advice numerous times to attend a track day, I did this past weekend, and it was amazing! It was put on my Moto Series here in Ohio at Nelson Ledges Road Course. I wasn't on the RC, I was on a loaner CBR, and I'm glad. This bike is a bit lighter, and has more rev range to play with which made it easier to concentrate on cornering and body position. I'll be working more on gear changes and getting the front and back straights up to speed next time. Any new riders here that have never done a track day, DO IT!! Your riding will improve tremendously!

There was a photographer there, but he still has yet to get this weekend's events up on his site. I went out there solo so no personal photographer (girlfriend) this time. Although, she would have been on the track as well, not taking photos of me!
