I just see nice cool weather. Not the 100 degrees we had one time this year.

That.........Was...................AWESOME! Thanks to the OPRT folks at the track and a HUGE shout out to Kim (my on track instructor), everything that guy told me was something I could go right to the track and work on. I haven't had that much fun on a bike since I first started riding!

glad to hear it! turns out it was a fantastic track day and the forecasted rain and thunder showers were totally right, except they all just barely missed the track all day, it was perfect!

There must have been a bubble around us or something...it was a pretty awesome day!! The only flaw was some guy passing me on the inside of 5 with only inches to spare during the last lap of the last beginner session (he wanted to keep up with his friend...). I guess I now have a taste of what the expert level will be like!

Silly guy...his bike would have been MUCH more expensive to repair than mine.

Had another fun day at the track, thanks OPRT. Can't believe the rain avoided the track the entire day (except for a little mist now and then).

Also was able to finally figure out why my bike has been pushing wide coming out of the turns (geometry change when the front forks were put back on after my crash in 2014). Will go back to my pre-crash settings and can't wait to get back out, hopefully on August 21st.

Good times as always with OPRT. The atmosphere seemed fairly relaxed overall.
Liked bumping lunch an hour later, and the misty conditions for a few sessions was interesting. Rain on facesheild, contact with pavement, (rain that is), then mostly vaprorized. Some corners were holding a touch of water temporarily, but overall a near dry day. Trackday afterglow still holding.

This was my first time on a track. What a great experience, a lot of fun and very educational. The OPRT guys did a great job of showing me the ropes.
