Hopefully you guys will luck out on weather.

There will be a lot of Assfaultjunkies there this weekend. However I won't be one of them. I'm looking to go the 16/17.

Most of the Junkies are from OH and KY that will be there. All good people, you'll see our vehicles or bikes with the logos on it, so stop by and say hi to them.

I see you got an 03 600. That's my track bike. If you need something for yours let me know, I have all my street stuff I'm busy taking pics of and getting ready to sell.

I'm 99% sure I'm done with street riding.

I'll be there.

2 black 600rr's (08 track and 06 street, "just in case") on a ghetto fabulous wood trailer behind an Explorer.

Say hi and help me with my suspension. I don't know what I'm doing with it.

hahahahaha, definitely sucks. glad youre alright mang.
try flipping thru the air at between 60-70mph, right in front of 2 riders and then landing and tumbling another 100ft or so up a hill.
land on the same exact side that got injured from another 100mph+ getoff 3 weeks prior on a track right across the street.

Bummer that you wrecked man. Don't know about right after lunch since I didn't go out right away, but I know there was a photographer in turn 4 for the last few sessions... If he was there the whole second half of the day, maybe he got a sweet sequence of your fall??

The track was INCREDIBLY slippery between the rain and the cold... just ridiculous. I think I got 3 laps in before lunch and finally determined after getting tired of feeling my tires sliding out from under me that I was gonna wait til it stopped raining, whether that meant the next track day or not.

I didn't even get out there for the first session after lunch. I was sitting in the truck (while it rained) and told my wife that I'd rather sit that day out and have my bike all in one piece for the next nice track day than crash it while trying to keep it up in the rain.

That said, after the rain stopped and the sun came out, the last 2 or 3 sessions of the day were awesome. The track dried up nicely and I had no problem with traction so I was riding about as hard as I could. I needed A LOT more track time than 3 sessions to get the lines down at a track I've never been to, so I was pretty sloppy still, but I had a ton of fun for the short amount of time I was out there.

I had the suspension guru in the cold pit tweak my suspension before I even got it on the track and I think it made a world of difference. I just finished building the trackbike up and have only ridden it once or twice on the street, but both times felt really weird in the corners, like it was hard to turn in and once it was turned in, it wanted to stand up on me. The suspension dude made some pretty significant adjustments from what I had set up and the bike felt great on the track. I was overall just happy that the bike I bought wrecked last year and spent a year turning into a track machine performed like it did. And for only having about $3k invested in it, I'm pleased!

I'll definitely be back to Putnam a couple times next year. I like the track and being that it's one of, if not the only track within 3 hours of Louisville, KY, the drive isn't bad at all.

Here's a link to some pictures from the day:

i remember seeing you out there man. cant say i watched you riding much but i remember seeing you and your wife and your bike. the track was definitely like ice and i had been feeling my tires slip that whole session but it had felt predictable til i went down. i wasnt really out there to wreck but i didnt want to waste the day away in the trailer. i was pretty dissappointed once the track dried up though cause it looked pretty fast. glad you had a good time out there and kept it upright. hit me up if you get back out there and i'll try to come out.

I had a pretty good time out there. It was unfortunate it had to rain for my first track day, but it was a decent learning experience. Once the road dried up a bit, I had some fun. It was also unfortunate that Colby wrecked, but I'm glad nobody got hurt out there that day.
