Title: Slow guy seeks fast frands
Post by: Ansleywynn on January 02, 2021, 11:13:52 AM
One of my resolutions this year is to be more active in the social aspects of the track riding community. So I’ll start here!

2020 was my first season back on the track since about 2013 or so. I was pleasantly surprised to find that someone (Pre) was finally putting together an CONSISTENT & ORGANIZED track day experience with good COMMUNICATION.   So thanks so very much for all of the effort to develop what instantly become my favorite group to ride with.

 Was pretty active last season- maybe 12 - 14 days up and down the east coast with a few different groups. Some of you may remember me as the guy with the “will work for clipons” sign at NCBIKE...   if you were there- I definitely asked you.

The season closer at VIR N. Was my “best day” of the season. Finally started to trust the brakes a little on this bike (new to me this season), and certainly saw my swiftest Laps on the course.

I generally ride with my head down- (literally and figuratively I suppose)-  but the last session or two that day gave me a great chance to play around a little with a couple CR’s.   Wish I could have found one/both of them for some feedback and hifives but alas I began to run out of fuel ⛽️ n T1 on the white flag lap..  so I lost them before getting to pits.

not sure about an embarrassed emoji, but it goes here. lol

Anyway- I really look forward to meeting and riding with you all again in 2021.   Thanks for everything you do.   I hope to be more active, and aspire to help support in anyway I can. 

Cheers

Welcome to the forum. What group and bike were you riding at North Course? From your avatar it looks
like you ride an older R6?

I look forward to meeting you in person and turning some laps with you this season.

Silver-  although she was only wearing the front cowl so looked a bit naked.

Oh yeah, I remember the bike. I was in I group that day and saw you on track a number of times. Unfortunately I was never with you long enough to provide any specific feedback. But I did note you were carrying a pretty good pace on an old bike. LOL

Well, Rocketdan, I guess I have my goal for this year-

Get the “pretty” out of the the way of my “good “ pace.

When we are not in the middle of a pandemic PRE does a good job of once the track goes cold offering a place for people to come together and get to know the people you are on track with. Fingers crossed for a return to that some point later on in 2021
