Just ordered....

A* SP-1 1pc, A* SMX Plus Boots, Knox Back Pro, and Dunlop Q2s.

Picking up track glass from a guy locally.

Looks like Im ready for my first ever trackday!

And get this. Next weekend, Ive got Monster Tech3 Hospitality passes for the Jerez GP race, So I will be watching MotoGP from the garages at Jerez, then the FOLLOWING weekend I will be doing my first ever trackday on that very same track. Getting stationed here was the best decision I have ever made in my 6 years in the Navy!

Damnnnn, I hate you. JK
And I agree it Moe, just go out and enjoy the track. Take plenty of pics of at the GP.

"For me, the problem is that big part of MotoGP riders now are pussies,"Rossi declared. "In the past, this is normal, the riders were more like real men. Now it is more like they are children."

Oh I plan on it. I have really hit the Jackpot on so many different levels. My buddy that is stationed here does at least 2 trackdays a month all over Spain and Portugal. I should get to ride Jerez, Aragon, Catalunya, Portimao, Estoril, and he even has a trip to Le Mans planned in August.

To top it off, he is friends with Collin Edwards so we have the hookup for any of the GP races in Europe! He said last year that him and his guests were in Collins coach after the race last year drinking with Collin for a few hours lol.

I just bought myself a nice DSLR last month so I plan on giving it plenty of usage next weekend. Im sooo stoked!

Thanks Tater :)

And btw, everyone told me, but nothing prepared me for....exactly how much difference SS Brake lines and a Suspension tuned to your weight makes. Just waiting for my Q2s to get in and the transformation will be complete. It already feels like a different bike!
