I think I made 4 or 5 new rider friends. Had a few "oh shit" moments, but pulled them off well. Crazy seeing the Ducati rider break off the shift pedal! WTF Ducati make that thing modular for easy replacement or change that angle.

Wow I didn't see that. Was it one of the Panigale's?

Yeah, a 959 I think. Rider seem to take it okay, he was a really cool guy.

Looking at this picture makes me think he was leaning real deep

Yes! It was a great day. I even got to ride a bit, although most of it was on the ice cream delivery scooter with my grandaughter, "Reese Lightning"
And yay, I whupped Andy Brackett for a lap or two....cept he was on an R3 and I was on an S1000RR. 37hp vs 182hp? Eh I'll take it....second place is first loser
Track days are about hanging out, helping out, making friends....and riding just for grins and giggles.
This was very much one of those days....great times.

That ice cream (actually Popsicle) gave me the boost to get through the last two sessions of the day. Very nice of you to do that, Zoomie.

Hope to see you all on the 10th.
