Default On the track again.

Well, after over a year away from the track, I finally got my shit together (ie, got health insurance) and got out on the track again.

I rode well, as I went out with nothing in my head other than to ride carefully, and concentrate on cornering over anything else. To that end, I didn't really go that fast on the straights, and I'm pretty sure I never went over 115, and I hit the brakes WAY early, just to make sure that I didn't have to panic brake (which got me into bunches of trouble last time out, as some of you may know). Anyway, I didn't have any real moments, though I did get into a couple of turns a little hot, and missed the apex of one corner by a few feet for a couple of laps (which only bothered me because I couldn't figure out why I missed it). In my last session of the day, I scraped my knee slider on pavement, which for some in the road racing world is something of a rite of passage.

Some pics of me (if the hotlinking will work):



So, now that you hotties know that I CAN ride without crashing, who wants to come out to AZ and go for a ride?

Well, don't everyone come foward at once.

Warned you we tried.
Listen you did not.
Now screwed we all will be.

Sorry, after my friend had his leg amputated (which I again credit to CA drivers inability to negotiate rain) after getting in a motorcycle wreck involving a big truck, I'm deathly afraid of motorcycles myself. However, good to hear that you're back on the track.

It's a 97 YZF1000, and yes, I own it. That was the only year this particular model was sold in the USA, though they continued to sell it in Europe up until the 2003 model year.
