Anyone going to Thunderbolt 7/19?

So I have my first trackday coming up at Thunderbolt on July 19th, just wanted to see if anyone from on here is gonna be there. I've never been to a trackday before so I'll probably be pretty lost, but I can't wait to go.

I'll probably be staying somewhere down in NJ for the weekend so I don't have to drive 4 hours on Sunday morning. Anyways if any of you guys are going let me know, maybe you could show me around and give me some tips or something.

I will be there. Look out for a OEM black fared CBR #101. If this is your first time, you will have lots of fun. I personally hate the horse shoe turn but besides that it is a very fast track. Would you be riding the white CBR?

EDIT: I cant recall the name but there is usually a suspension setup person there who will setup your suspension for $40. I got it done last time I was there & it makes a world of difference in your handling.

Nice, yeah I'll be on the white CBR. What group are you riding with? It's my first time so I'll be in novice, I'm really excited I just want it to be Sunday already.

I was curious if there was gonna be anyone there doing suspension set up, glad to hear someone will be there, I want to get that done.

You have any tips for a first timer?

No can do. No bike = no track days :( Waiting on insurance money so I can decide what to do next.
