I’ll primed and ready for this weekend’s festivities with SoCal Track Days at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. Can’t wait to get back out on the track, spending two days at this open track day. New track for me, zero sessions, ride as much as I want.
All packed up for another great day at Buttonwillow Raceway Park with Let’s Ride Track Days. My buddy with the motovan decided to take a snooze so I had to get my bike to the track on my own. No problem, with a long ramp, a tight grip on the bars, and a whole lot of prayers I got Juicy up into The Beast without breaking a sweat. Now that I know I can do this on my own, I see more track days in my future.
Loving the race skins, had them all off in under five minutes. Putting the fat boy RaceTech springs in the forks, reinstalled the Öhlins shock which I just had serviced and re-sprung, and just need to have the slicks swapped with the new Dunlop Q3s and then I’m finally ready for the track.
Ah… the bikes are enjoying the sunshine during National Clean & Organize Your Garage Day! Got everything sorted out and the bikes are happily all situated in their new spots. Tomorrow, I’m hoping get them all washed up and ready or the season. Anxious to spend more time riding both on the street and the track this year.
Well, Ol’ Yeller is officially retired. Just added a new bike to the stable, a 2005 Suzuki GSX-R750. This thing is set up for the track, with more gadgets and gizmos that I know what to do with. It’s light, fast and is going to take a while to get used to but I can’t wait to get this thing out on the track and see what we can do together.
I can’t believe it’s been nearly eight months since my last track day. Can’t wait to get out there again and take some corners with some good friends. Ol’ Yeller is ready and willing and I’m looking forward to getting the old dog back on the track.
