I finally did my first track day (Nelsons Ledges)

After many many years of riding, I finally did my first track day and it happened to be @ Nelson's Ledges Moto Series track day. I had an absolute blast! I wish I had pics to share the fun I had but, I didnt have anyone to snap them. lol

Sweet, welcome!

I was there, running in open group Saturday and Monday. You should have stuck around for Monday, we had sooooo much track time since only 10-12 people showed up!

Marty was there taking pictures on Saturday - check out http://photos_by_marty.fototime.com/MotoSeries%202011 randomly this week, it'll take him a few days to get them posted up.

Sweet! I will have to try and make a Monday. If I could swing the cost I would go again in the beginning of August, but I am headed to the Dragon in late August. I will be hitting Beaver Run on September 10th with Moto Series though, that should be fun!

Hahah I am trying to prep the wallet. I am selling my RC soon and asking for moto series gift cards for all holidays! Hopefully next year I can do every event.

I did check Marty's site and he has the pics up now.

Oh cool! I will catch you at Beaver for sure. Yeah turn 13 or the carousel would have been awesome for pictures! I hope he posts more of the open session. There is only one guy he took shots of that I can find in the open session.
