Finally did my 1st track day

Button Willow 4/20/09. Did my first track day ever with the Track Club and I had a great time. I should have done track days alot sooner!! I learned alot and had a blast, had some minor issues with my suspension that made me sat out for 3 sessions. It's a humbling and exhilarating experience, I'm looking forward to doing more track days. On to the pics.

What's up with the green vests? I thought only controlled riders wore the vests?

Glad you had fun. It only gets more addicting.

It's easy to get addicted to the track. Sounds like you had fun even with the suspension hiccup. Good for you.

Yep, when I was sandbagging it in TPM's beginner group it made it easy to know who to be extra careful around.

Some of us wore various color vests because we signed up for the Novice Riders class, they split the class into groups and each group wear a certain color vest and an instructor designated to each group. Our group instructor was very helpful and informative. I was so used to riding canyons that the first 2 sessions I couldn't see the track at all.

I had my suspension checked out by Race Tech to make some minor adjustments, turns out a local shop broke my rear shock adjustment collar when they last did my supension. My rear was not adjustable because of the broken collar and almost bottomed out.
