Man what an awesome weekend! We went to Gratten and the weather was great, the track was as good as could be expected this time of year and other than a couple of minor incidents (off the track BTW) it was a perfect weekend. I won't go into detail about the "other" stuff but Dyno and I hung pretty tight all weekend and we had alot of fun passing each other. Yes we were getting lapped being our first track day but we were lapping other people as well so we were not the slowest by far.. I am most definately doing more track days and hopefully SOON.. Here are some pics...

1. MP's R6 in the trailer begging to be unloaded and beat on
2. 2 R6s - Dynos with the race plastics and MP's along with Twisty's GSXR 750 - I guess 2 out of 3 bikes ain't bad.. Damn GSXR tainted that pic.. lol..
3. Rev's Monster
4. Twisty's race R6 - now that is what I am talking about
5. In the "WOS" garage Sunday morning that we rented for a mere $30.. Hey Haz when we said "give it some gas" we didn't mean it like that.. lol.. Actually bad joke because that mfr was lapping me not once but twice per session - him and Twisty are bad mfrs..

On track pics..

Ok so these are the greatest and I am hoping Pippi and Amy took better pics that I should have soon and I will post them but here is something to start with...

1. Flyby and Haz
2. Haz, Twisty, MP & Dyno - in that order - trust me Dyno and I were far behind those two fast ass mfrs by about 2 turns later - just happened that we all just got on the track at that point
3. Twisty about ready to lap some mfrs
4. MP (3rd back) and Dyno right behind
5. Haz

Yeah hooked isnt the word for it. Oh and the whole reason, partial reason, for my post - Fugging Pilot Powers ROCK! They are awesome tires - they hook up well.. The Amsoil I put in was awesome as well - bike was running sweet..

Glad that you had fun. I'll be at the track this weekend and I'm really stoked to get the 6 out there. Also, Jack from sliderphoto.com will be at Putnam so I'm hoping to have some REALLY good pics. But only time will tell. I also plan on taking my video camera, but I don't know if anyone will be there that can take vids for me. I have a camera mount for my bike, but it's the kind that mounts on the gas tank and I've already determined that it will be in my way for aggressive riding such as the track. Oh well, maybe one day I'll come up with something better. Anyway, I plan on installing Powers later this year. I hope the stock tires don't let me down.

Ok so Rev and I are picture/video illerate.. I was trying to focus the damn video camera that was on auto focus the whole time and Rev didn't know there was an on/off button - he was filming the entire time - makes for entertaining video of Rev's hand going by every now and again and Rev walking.. lol.. Rev's footage is better than mine as I was trying to focus the whole time and made it choppy as hell.. Neither of us zoomed in.. Next time we need a dedicated camera professional.. I have 2 or 3 people that want to come check it out - not ride just watch - so I think next track day we will have great pictures / video and if all else fails my good friend is a professional photographer and I am sure some beer and a few bucks would get him out there.. It is a good thing Pippi got some good pictures because mine are wretched.. I need to call Flyby tomorrow and find out the status of those pics as well..

WOS Track Day @ Gratten

Okay, now that I am finally unloaded and sacked out in front of the computer for a while, here is my limited contribution. The first two is Twisty and I having a little bit of fun with our favorite Ducati rider before entering the track. Twisty's Race Ready R6 is hanging out in the back of Pippi's truck with Pippi's weekend racer on the driver side and Desmo900Rider Wife's 750 on the passenger side. Next shot is us killing time waiting for the track to open. It's looking a little cloudy, but those will break up before lunch. The last two are back at the ranch with MudPuppy's Blue R6 in the front and my Technicolor R6 going the wrong direction in the back of the trailer.

The first one is the trailer after all the crap had been cleared away to actually get the bikes out. Next three is my R6 in all her glory -NOT- it's looking like Twisty's old TL right about now. Fortunately all the factory bits were re-installed tonight, so now I just need to con my buddy into fixing some of the cracks and repainting it to something a little more unifrom. Next track day she'll look as fast as she is.....

Pippi said:
Yes, I got some decent pics - Twisty is going to do some cropping/fixing and then post em up.

No, no vid - forgot the video camera.
Ok time's up - forget all the cropping, etc. - No fix required - just post em and send whatever you have via email.. I need to call Brian as well.. Does anyone have his email?
