The site is still on schedule for the 2/1/2006 launch. Still lots to do but most of it will be ready.
Buttonwillow Track Day
I went to Buttonwillow Raceway for the first time yesterday, my second track day overall. It's a much faster track than Streets of Willow Springs and took a little getting used to, but once in the groove I really started to feel good out there. Except for the part where I went off a turn and into the mud (that's what happens when you don't concentrate out on the track). Otherwise I was hitting corners well and staying low.
One thing that always surprises me is when people show up on really fast bikes but ride so slowly. I was running circles around the many R1s in my group, which was the slowest of the three groups.
The site is moving along and it should be ready for the 2/1/2006 launch date. There might be a few pages still needing work but I think the majority of it will be done. Didn't ride this weekend due to rain and football.
Ugh; I'm still working on getting the content together. Admittedly this can be a very subjective topic and there will be many dissenting opinions, but the ultimate goal here is to keep new riders as safe as possible. In any case I'm shooting for a 2/1/2006 launch date.
