My father won the Keith Code Superbike School prize package provided by the BMWMOA when he attended this years World Superbike races in Salt Lake City. I was fortunate enough to receive the package as a gift from my Dad for my 40th birthday. I certainly want to thank the BMWMOA, California Superbike School, my family, along with those of you on the board who helped get me ready for my first track day experience. My entire experience could not have been better!
I chose VIR for my track day! My brother went along with me to observe, which also helped me relax. We arrived at 6:50am for registration.
Aren't they pretty:
My new lucky number 19:
It was time to suit up and the blood started pumping:
Mounting up for my first track experience:
Keith Code was a lot of fun to visit with. His attention to detail impressed me and the staff could not have been more helpful:
My first session with instructor in tow:
After your track session it is time for your evaluation. This was so helpful as the instructors reveiwed your lines, body position, places giving you a hard time on the track. You knew exactly what to work on when you headed back out for your next session:
You can see how much more relaxed I was on the bike as we moved into the afternoon (trust the bike and relax):
In the afternoon we switched from rain mode to sport mode setting on the bike. I felt much more comfortable heading up through the gears and downshifting going into the corners with the higher rpm setting. This bike is amazing!!!!!
I picked up the pace considerably and even dragged a knee in turn one. The knowledge I gained about cornering will help me be a much safer rider on the street. The day flew by and I certainly would do this again!
What a B-DAy GIFT! Thank you again DAD!
