Check the trackday thread on AF1. I got some pictures of your race posted.
I have the raw full size files if you want any of them.
I would hope you guys do some RS track days as I get a better discount through them and CW is easier. Credits hold for a lot longer. I may do the ECR open day on 12th for 100$
If you plan to go let me know. I gotta wait to see about some things before I register.

Frank, yea if you or anyone wants to go Sunday let me know. Who ever comes needs to wear their gear. Club Rides, require Helmet,Jacket,Gloves and Boots. They don't have to be riding boots just something better than running shoes.

Took me a long time to learn this but the greatest things you can do to a bike are,
wheels, suspension, brakes.

Looks like Silver Spool is showing up. We look to have about 10 bikes give or take a few. Anyone else wants to join in PM me. I will check this late afternoon Saturday.

Also if you pan to ride with our group you must wear your gear. Helmet/Jacket/Gloves/Some form of boot.

Did you get a hold of Jc? You don't want the suspension too soft. It will bounce too much and cause you to lose control.

If the rear is adjustable and the front also I say we try and take it to my buddy Joe's house. He does suspension. I bet for a couple bucks he will fix it right up for you. I would raise it to the height you want before hand though. Call me later about it.

When ever you want to go on a ride let us know. Frank and I ride a good amount. Just make sure and get a lot of gear. Good GEAR!

I got **** to do Friday then Saturday I hit the dirt.

Maybe a little week day night ride? Pick a route and we can do a loop and end up at Dublin? Maybe like Wednesday? You know when I get off work.

Got to play with the Ego Mount on the dirt Saturday a little. We had the 4 wheelers with us so I didn't get to use it too much. Held up great I will have a short clip later.

I ordered my new jacket and gloves today since I picked up the bike from ^ earlier. Unfortunately, like a dumb ass I left the parking lights on for too long and the battery is dead so I get to jump it before I have a chance to even ride it.

Hooray me.

It went fine. I discovered that the Home Depot rental trucks have built in ramps underneath the tailgate. Would've been nice to know when we loaded it, of course. Made me feel even blonder.

But we did almost drop it twice. Ended up using the tiedowns as a sort of ratchet system. I'm a freaking ghetto engineering genius.
