Monday trackday at Jennings rant

My trackday this last Monday was incredible!!! It was my fourth day ever at a track and I learned so much. It was my first time riding intermediate and I was initially the slowest one in my group. After lunch I started following my friend around, who was probably the fastest intermediate out there, and he progressively started going quicker. Amazingly I was keeping up lap after lap. After about 6 or seven laps he waved me past, after a lap or so I looked back and he was probable 70 yards back or so!!! Man, it felt so good, I was passing so many people and didn't get passed myself at all that session. We came in and he was so amazed. He asked what happened ?!?!!?!?! That was such a drastic increase in speed he'd ever seen. He told me that he actually had trouble keeping up! I think everything "clicked" that session. It was my first trackday to drag knee and I was doing it through so many turns. I'm actually thinking of going track only now, it was so INCREDIBLE!!! I can't wait to go back, which will be the middle of September. I know I can push it more too, it seemed so easy and smoothe. I actually gave him a tip for one of the set of turns that he was slowing down too much for. Also some guys from the Dixie Mafia were giving me pointers (very nice guys!)

Thanks for letting me vent, every time I think of Monday it's like I get a adrenaline rush all over again.

Awsome Bobby. Got any pictures from down there? You can't go track only though, what about Sundays in the mountains?

i believe i'm about an average intermediate now-we'll see in September I guess. As for the mountains, you know, it makes me realize how much more dangerous it is up there. I'm still gonna go, but probably less often and not as quick (not that I was anyways!)

I am not planning on teaching anything, but maybe showing something. I am an open book to those who want to ask. I am a freaking sponge to those who can show me a faster way. To me, it is all about the party! Camping out with a lot of motorcycle riding mixed in.

GA_RR, can't, looking for a house all day. Going to be looking the next couple of weekends before the lease is up. I'm tired of apartment complex rules!
