That sounds great. I can't wait to meet up with you guys and do some riding. My work schedule is a bit different than most, I'm off Sundays Mondays and Tuesdays...

At this point, y'all may need to teach me a thing or two

Sorry n7hevn, but late braking and sliding is one of my specialties, lol...

That's on helmet and on bike from a couple years ago... At the very end, when I'm passing the guy taking a crappy line, you can see how sideways tend to get....

I should specify, that's me filming Dave Moss.

Great vid there Aussie! That track looks like a blast! You'll be getting together with some great guys at the local tracks with N7, Impalen, etc. Although I'm no where near the caliber of those guys I've learned quite a bit from them and always have had a great time. Your wreck sounds like some bad news. Glad to read you've healed up well. Hope to see all of you guys at the tracks real soon.

West texas may be a bit too far for me, but maybe I'll make the trip when the weather warms up a bit...

I think that Rob mis-typed on that one. They ride just West of Fort Worth, not "West Texas" (like El Paso, or Midland/Odessa).

The ride is fun for sure, and I cannot spoil the route, because I barely remember even how to get out there, let alone all the roads we went through....

Nice... Well like I said, just give me the heads up and i'm in for a ride... Thats open for anyone... I work wed-sat night, off sun, mon, tues... And if I can manage to get my s**t together to do a trackday soon, I'll show anyone and everyone who wants to see, my style of sliding. If you guys have cams, I'd be happy to film as well... I'm up for whatever, lol...

I just need it warm up a little bit……………..


what I do is not a track day or track day speeds , but it is lots of fun.
That sounds like a lot of fun... I'll be honest with you Rob, I am not a fan of railing when it's not on a track. I've seen too many fatal, avoidable accidents because of track mentality on twisty roads... That includes some acquantances whom I have raced with/against...

Ya'll make the plans and I'll see what I can do schedule wise... Like I said in a seperate post, I'm fairly new to Texas (1 and a half years) and newer still to East Texas (about 10 months), so I'd love to find a good group of people to ride with...

Well I am game Rob. I may not be an "old guy" quite yet, but it's always nice to get together with good people, get away from the "old ladie" as you say and have a little fun...
