So yeah the day before my first track day, murphy hits in full force. The pickup gets stuck, nothing fits, I keep forgetting sh8t, and stayed up till the wee hours in the morning cause my friend and I were talking about all sorts of crap. So the day comes, and I'm full of energy with my whole tree hours of sleep, and were on our way. So we get there, only a couple of bikes, to my surprise... ALL OF THEM RACING BIKES, so im the only one there with taped up lights and street tires, everybody else is on slicks and the whole nine yards. I get assinged a full on racer to be my "wingman" for the first 3 laps to show me around the track, the line and all the little nit picks and tricks around it. So after that, everybody else has already taken off in full force, and i'm just riding my ride, next thing I know the session is over and NO ONE LAPPED ME. This is a 1.5 mile course and no one on their full racing bikes lapped me, when we got back to the pits, I was filled with praise on how good I did, etc etc etc, now for next month they want to invite me TO RACE with them in the Ponce Grand Prix. Needless to say I want to, only hoping that the budget will allow it, need all sorts of new stuff, IE, racing tires, tire warmers, suspension worked on, PCIII, , new brake master CYLINDER...CAUSE MINE GAVE OUT ON THE THIRD TO FOURTH LAP OF EACH SESSION, BRAKE FADE LIKE A MUTHAFUGGA, I had to use the run off area of turn nine going at a nice clip...PUCKER FACTOR WENT UP EXPONENTIALLY 100%, new brake pads, bleed the lines again, and last but not least a trailer in which to carry my newfound track weapon... I mean I was keeping up with race bikes and full on racers, on my everyday ride, so maybe things will turn out ok for me. And hopefully I'll be a motorcycle racer by next year... Iknow thread worthless w/o pics right, well I hace about 200 with like 7 vids. dont know how to do it but will find out, ill get back to y'all on this...promise.
Here's three photos, more on the way:
