Was another great track day experience with 2Fast (well, except until a certain "old school" kawasaki flew by and easily left me and other riders behind during one of the 200 level sessions) . I had to track down your bike in the pits after that session to get a better look at the bike and talk to the rider as I was much impressed with your riding skill and how you made that old kawasaki move so fast.

Still have a lot to learn about going fast, but couldn't think of a better way to spend a Saturday. Was nice chatting with you at the end of the day too.

Whew! It was a bright and sunny dry day, but was it ever windy! Made it tough to get shots when you're being blown every which way.

Hey all, had a great day and it was cool to ride with and meet some of the PNWR dudes. I registered here aaaaaaages ago sometimes lurk but just never posted on this board. Several shamed me into poking my head in finally.

Here's a pic with the Ape pitted with Ook:

BTW, does anyone know the rider of the S1KRR with the "XTI" on their leathers that shows up in 02XXCA's video at 8:35?

Thanks John, nice talking to you as well. And you're right, there isn't a better way to spend a Saturday.

Awesome! I was following you for at least half of the last session. We got in our own bubble with no one in front of us, so it was just me chasing you. You would barrel down the straights and I would lose you, and you brake later than me, then I would slowly catch up to your tail on the twisties where I have a little advantage. Rinse, repeat for most of the session. Not sure if you realized I was back there. Anyway, it was a ton of fun! I looked for you in the pits after, but missed you. Unfortunately, was one of the sessions where I didn't get video. It was a crap video day for me, I missed that as well as my motocross excursion in turn 1. Though if you look at the around 2:00 of 02XXCA's video, you can see my leftover dustcloud at turn 1.

Ha, that's for sure. It's was a beautiful day, but gusty. A couple tents actually went parachute during the rider's meeting. Even with our tent city here, we had to take them down for safety around 2pm.

Cool to hear, the last session was pretty fun as the track was pretty cleared out compared to the earlier sessions. There was a time or two when I thought I heard a bike pretty close behind me, I just need to get a little more confidence in knowing how fast I can take the turns, the bike (with the standard Metzler K3s) is currently a lot more capable than I am at this point.

Seconded! Some very cool pics! When riding by, thought this angle would never have worked, but now I see why you used it since it slopes down from there. Thanks, Jason!

NEWB question -- how did you get a direct link to the photos with watermark in the lower right?

Hehe, yeah, that was me behind you.

I was also lucky enough to get the K3's stock on my S1K as well. I liked them enough that I bought another pair that were takeoffs from a racer's bike. I might suggest Q2s as well, I fitted them for the track on the S1 and I thought they performed quite well (I was tracking the S1 before an accident/insurance incident made the Aprilia a no-brainer as a dedicated track bike). I think I will put the K3s back on the beemer for the street since I think they very well suited and the bike that likes to eat tires.

And yes, the S1 is sooooo much more capable than we are.
