Well damn… this sucks!

I had to replace the front tire after finding it flat this morning and now it looks like my radiator took a hit and sprung a leak. My weekend is officially done.

Had a great weekend though, the bike was feeling really good and I absolutely love this track.

Can’t wait to get back here and run some more laps. It may be a long drive to get here, but I’d definitely do it again.

Until next time… 

Who’s number one?

Lost some paint on Juicy’s front end when I pulled the class tag after the last track day. I needed something to cover it up rather than repaint. I Found this gem in my big box of stickers.

Thought it was fitting to add Nicky’s number on the Suzuki as he was riding a gixxer when I saw him win his first AMA race at Laguna Seca. Miss you champ. It’s been a tough year without you.

That’s it, I’m out!

Well, at least for this year. Another great day at the track, the temperature was perfect and for the first time in recent years I was able to enjoy the day without rain, cold or blistering hot temps.

I was so happy to see Dave Moss there as I’ve been wanted to get his hands on Juicy to work out the kinks I’ve had since the git go. “Best 40 bucks you’ll spend on your bike”, so true. Dave is a genius at setting up bikes and after the first few session, he had the bike feeling so much better and I enjoyed the rest of the day working on the cornering tips he provided.

I’m quickly realizing that I need to work harder to get in better shape as these days really take their toll by the mid afternoon sessions.  Over winter I’m going to increasing my cardio program so next year I’ll have more endurance throughout the day.

Although I’m not planning any more track days for 2017, I can’t wait to get back out there.  I feel my progress has been slowed a bit as I adjust to the new bike, but with each new ride I feel more and more confident.  Looking forward to working harder in 2018 and maybe finally getting that knee on the ground.

Cali Photography was there to capture my moves, and Let’s Ride Trackdays put on another great event. We agreed as a group that we need to check out Chuckwalla Valley Raceway next year, and I’m hoping we can all work it out to ride together.

This will finish out the track pictures for the year. I need to get some street action going before the rain starts.
