Figured, I am privileged enough to get to quite a few trackdays a year, why not track it somehow. See others do the same so what they hell lol.

Come 2008 I really started to pick thing up and began to understand a variety of things regarding the track. I got to do a LOT more trackdays in 08 and started control riding in 2008 as well.

Jan of 08 - JenningsGP




In June I was t-boned while control riding at Homestead in T6, left me with a broken shoulder, so the next weekend I decided to take the 1000RR out to Jennings (the 600RR was totaled at that point)

July of 08




Then I healed up for a while, went back to Jennings in Oct of 08. But can't find pix...


Sept of 08

So over the last couple years I have been lucky enough to get into trackdays and was able to learn quite a bit.

I have been PRIVILEGED to be able to control ride for a number of different organizations and have since started my own.

I get to instruct and tech inspect for FloridaTrackdays.com at everyone of their events in addition to being the instructor for PBIR and get to attend their trackday that they have every other Friday afternoon.

Hope to one day get to ride with you!

Still workin on it. Fvckin insurance companies suck. I am gonna be there by hook or by crook! I am not missing this one unless I am dead or homeless. Hoping to see you before that at Homestead or PBIR. I want to ride PBIR in November and if I can get everything together Homestead in September. Thinking about Daytona in October but if it doesent work out I may be at PBIR earlier than expected.

nice! i kind of miss the trackdays here but i got burned out after staying there for 2 months doing nothing but tuning our RVF400's carb & suspension, guess what, i was the the test rider as well as the carb & suspension tuner.

when i get my forks sorted out i'm going to take my bike out again for a test & tune session. i'm jealous of you guys that can go out & do a trackday at any given time.

soon....... very soon. :D
