    You should get some letters and change it to Madman.

    Ya. You were moving good on the SV. I gave you a wave on the front straight after we both got checked up by that ZX10R.

    I arrived at the track and took the bike in after a few laps of the first session because it was down on power. Get ready for the second session and it won't start, so I jump it. Dies before I get it on track. I'm thinking something's really messed up with my bike. Turned out to be a dead battery cell, even though the battery was less than 1 year old and on a tender most of the winter. Threw away a $250 track day when I could have just bought an $80 battery.

    Ah, that was you. Nice to track-meet you!

    Yeah, that dude was NOT cooperating. Frustrating.

    Not a track day, but I did once ride over to Larz Anderson for the Tutto Italiano get-together on the wrong day.

    Not laughing out loud when a certain guy from RI (who has a customized S1000RR and a Kawi H2 supercharged) told a guy in front him at the Red Roof breakfast area straight faced that he was smooth as Lorenzo, and disappointed in tire quality as his old track bike was a ZX6R and could spin the tire on corner exit on only a 600. I just said to him this is the point when I can't talk to you anymore, when I should have laughed and had chocolate milk come out of my nose.

    Last SCCA Track Night was 10/4 at Thompson. Thought sure I’d registered. Get to Thompson, unload car, walk in with tech sheet right at 3:00pm - not on list. Home by 5.....
