Just made it home. What a day. 2.5+ hours each way driving truck and trailer ducked. Had a blast on track, thanks for help and ice cold cooler @DerekClouser. The MT did great, of course it is more capable than me, but I improved throughout the day. Damn keyhole was my struggle point. Michelin road 5s did good on the track.

Glad everyone who went had nearly perfect weather.  I came in to work very sad today.  Another example of me being an idiot.  So who's up for the 9th/10th???

I'm definitely in for one of those days. The 9th is my birthday so I'm partial to that, plus the weather is looking nice so far. Then again, the weather for today looked really nice a week ago too...

Awesome day at the track yesterday!  We did get rain towards the latter part of the day which brought things to a stop, but we were able to get in 5 great sessions. 

Thanks @TimTheAzn for letting us use the garage. 

Thank you @J_Copeland for the tow on my very first Intermediate Session.  Good to learn some spots where I was being lazy at before in Novice and showed a lot of where I can make up quite a few seconds. 

Met @Bjorn and his significant other.  Glad you guys had a great time.  Hope your ride home wasn't too terribly wet.  Hopefully we can see you at the next track event!  

And finally @JustinNck1  -- Awesome to witness your first track event!  You'd better LET THAT FZ10 eat on the back stretch NEXT TIME!!  :lol:

Here are a few pics:

I know, it was the street mentality stuck in my brain thinking, "Going to jail at this speed". Then on the sessions when I was going to, I was behind the guy on the 250.

LOL I know. Somehow I magically appeared behind the control rider every novice session I ran at Mid-O. Regardless the order we pitted out. :dunno:

Hi All-

I just signed up for Mid-Ohio Track Riding on Monday, July 9, 2018 (only doing one day).

Anyone have a garage to share? Or would want to split one if I bought a garage spot?

I've raced cars at Mid-Ohio years ago, but haven't been there with a bike yet, so this will be my first time riding there. I've mostly done track days on the bike at Grattan and GingerMan. Really looking forward to Mid-Ohio!!!

Matthew.
