Didn't see a black RR in my group (with red leathers). Did have a black and black, though. He was fast and smooth. This was my first track experience and I can tell you the only thing I didn't like all day was my bike starting to shudder at about 135 and up. Top speed (on my speedo) today was 152. Mosquito was absolutely right, down one and tip into first! Love it! Only one bad crash today, happened right in front of me. Guy started with a bad headshake, ending in a horrific crash straight into some bales of hay, bike was up in the air landed ON the fence. I thought the guy was dead. I was bad and I stopped off on the grass to see if I could help. Shoulda kept going, I felt like a real noob after that. I guess instinct just kicked in, you know, Someone crashes and you stop to direct traffic, move debris, first aid, etc. Not done that way one a track, I know now. I wonder how he is, he was airlifted out...
Last session was the best, I felt I had the track to myself, got into a groove, it was nice.
All in all, Fasttrackriders put on a good show, very professional. Worth the money. Going again in February.
Special thanks to RRoc, for providing me with a ride and everything else! Next time, Doug, we're going to have to bring assistants to cater to our every need, massages and bike stand duty, etc
So, next time: balance wheels properly for no vibrations at 140 plus, clear windscreen, sleep more the night before, buy truck with front wheel locking stand thingy, bring assistant.
