Track:

-Do at least 4 track days.
-One of those at the new NJ motorsports park (PM me for details... it will be in October)
-Be smoother / more relaxed.
-Power harder post-apex.
-Brake harder/later.
-Turn-in quicker (reach traction limits / max lean faster).
-Work on right-handers.
-Don't crash.


Street:

-Ride more.
-Find more people in the area I enjoy riding with.
-Find more twisties.
-Do the twisty runs I mapped out.... they are full day trips farther away.


General:

-Complete garage.
-Continue amassing tool collection.
-Complete desired winter maintenance/upgrades.

I'd be down with meeting you at the NJ track. The problem with that place, I feel, will be largely the same problem as Pocono. The knuckleheads from the city who show up with chromed this and polished that who cant ride.

I agree.... but really... there's a couple of those guys no matter what track day you go to. You just gotta keep your head around them.

PMed regarding TD.

Once you start moving up in levels, I suspect you will see less of those morons as well. They will be in the lower groups.

yeah, because then you start getting where you have to have skill and have most likely been to several track days already and are a little more serious about what type of bike you bring to the track.

Get leathers yet? If not, that you should be your next goal even before you get your license back.

Double Digit track days, at LEAST. I think I only got in 7 or 8 this year.

Visit more new and cool tracks, got VIR And BeaveRun added to the list this past season.

Pass Super

Pass Twisty (Without needing his bike to stop running)

Two of the four are achievable at least!
