Track day at Shannonville in Canada eh!

This was my third time on the track (with a bike), ever!

My first was with a school at Calabogie, where I learned the basics of body positioning etc..

The second was at Mosport International-and for those who don't know the track, it is a very high speed track with lots of elevation. I shat my pants.

And of course the third was at Shannonville, which is a safer, more technical track. I really enjoyed this one and think I learned a lot while gaining confidence in myself and bike.

I ride in the intermediate group.

How do I look??

Calabogie is amazing, you're lucky to live close. I unfortunately have to drive 4 hours to get there and have to stay overnight.

That last pic is just before the sun went down around 8:30pm. We had the track to ourselves so we stayed on as long as we could. Its an awesome pic with the sun going down.

I think I might get down there and check it out on Sunday. I went to Mosport when they came but I'd love to see them again! Let me know if you go buddy.

At shannonville? Which version of the track are they using? My pics are from the Fabi track (which is the far side of the track including the back straight).

Yeah, Mos is not the best place to get into track riding. As a matter of fact, neither is Bogie!

Lookin good, keep it up! See you out there.
