That highside was brutal, but thanks to everyone who helped get me back out there!
Other then being a bit sore, I had a blast! I'll post up a few links to the videos I got tomorrow sometime for anyone interested! Especially the highside video, from two diff camera's... Hahaha

The crash, and the rest of the afternoon. Hope you guys can give me some pointers on what I can work on, maybe teach me a few things... I'm brand new to track riding so any feedback would be great!
Check you guys tomorrow... Thanks again for all the help! Hoping next time out I can get some coaching and work on my skills if anyone is willing...

Not only will it make you a better rider, it'll set you up to have the knowledge to make some independent decisions and boost your confidence, i.e: my bike runs wide while turning, what can I do with my setup to address the problem... lots of experience and info from the instructors.

I'd absolutely love that! Had no idea he taught/held schooling at the track. I need some good coaching on, well, everything! Been riding a few years now, but I'm a complete noob on the track. I was out there this past weekend trying to teach myself, not only the track and turns, but also working on my braking points, lines, etc... Just sort of making it up as I went... I def need some coaching, and need to be taught a lot! I was out there trying to fly around like a pro, when really I should have started slower, and asked for someone to tow me around, show me some lines, and give me some pointers on what I need to work on! I won't make it back out till Oct so if he's holding a class I'm in for sure! Wont have the bike back together for this weekend, and really need to let me leg heal before I get back out there. I should have just asked for some help from some of the experienced guys out there. Just didn't think anyone would have any interest investing their time in helping me out... When I'm sure that's not the case at all. Oh well, learned the hard way first time out. I'll be back out there though for sure! Just want to soak up some knowledge and
learn as much as I can! I'll post up the vids I promised tomorrow also, maybe get some feedback from you guys on what I need to work on as well!

I see two trackdays listed in Oct, is it on one of those days? Can I pre-register? Is there a cut-off for how many can attend? I know a couple people who may be interested.
Also, I'll post up some vids from my first trackday today when I get home and see what you guys think... Afternoon wasn't too bad. The morning when I wrecked was ugly riding all around. I was just out there trying to learn the track and teach myself really. I'd really enjoy some coaching and pointers from you more senior guys! Next time out, if I'm not taking the class I'll def ask if anyone wants to bother towing me around, and following me and giving me some feedback on what's good, and what I need to work on! Thanks again everyone! Looking forward to getting back out there, and getting better!
Videos will be up this afternoon...
