    My Goals...


    Well, it's been just over a week since I joined here. survived a little hazing and the usual torment from Pete and Denno!
    But what is funny about how this place has changed me soo fast is that I had no real intentions of becoming a track junkie, but it is just happening...
    It is to the point where I have a hard time falling asleep at night! I have only done 1 track day and it was not at NHIS.
    My goal is to purchase a used gsxr600 and dedicate it for next year. God knows the Busa wont cut it....I will be purchasing a race suit as well as any other things I may need. I plan on doing as many track days as I can afford by banking away some $$ over the winter. I am looking foward to meeting as many of you as possible and riding and learning as much as I can.
    One thing with me is when I set my goals, there is no stopping me. I've never ben so excited about something as much as this!!!

    Don't forget to do some physical conditioning over the winter.

    A fit racer is a fast racer.

    And good luck with your endevour.

    I'll be behind you watching your 6 O'clock on the Busa.

    Geez,

    If you sell a Harley you should be able to afford 2 or 3 nice track bikes.
