Popped my cherrie

Popped the proverbial cherrie yesterday.. First time on a trackday. Been on the track a few times before, with Cal Superbike School, but this was the first time 'unchapperoned', with bikes flying past me left right and centre, depending on where my bike had decided to take me at the time.
Talk about a rush.. Recommend it to anyone out there - give it a try. No need to worry about looney car drivers out there, only concentrate on the track, taking the corners better each time 'round, and just have a blast.. Cant wait for the next one (if the missus lets me, that is...)

With all those bikes flying by... isn't it way better than watching it on speedvision!

That's not a cherry popper,
competing on your first race is...

On your first race, you will have uncontrollable pregrid adrenalin shakes.
Once the flag drops... it's orgasmic...

even after 4 seasons of racing, i still had adrenalin pregrid shakes.
the only think that takes care of that is a 24hr race (Nelson ledges, OH)

Not quite in the league of racing yet.. That will take a few years. But the feeling, yeah, pretty close.. Gimme this over sex any day - this lasts quite a bit longer (never been able to manage 6 times 20 minutes on one day).. However, cant do this as frequent - trackdays are only a few times a year, whereas.. Never mind, wont go into that....
Cant wait for the next one to come up.. (Track day, that is, you dirty minded persons)

Yes, trackdays are a blast. If I ever make enough money to support doing them close to every weekend before I get old, I plan to hit trackdays constantly. Right now, I don't have any money and no longer have a bike. But yeah, trackdays were a helluva rush.
