I was hoping I could come down on Thursday and at least meet you guys.
Instead I came down Friday and setup my pit in virtually the same spot you had. Saturday was practice for the AFM race, with the final race of the season on Sunday. I was fighting for 3rd in the race when I screwed up went off on the final corner leading onto the straight. (final corner before the checkered flag!!! :x  :x )
Well thanks to my flattrack experience I kept it together and got back onto the track and finished 4th. But that was more than enough to clinch the 500 twins title  :cheers:
It was a hard fought season against a few SV 500s and the usual Kawi Ninjas.
But the mighty GSZILLA prevailed :)  :mrgreen:
I'm going into semi-retirement, so I hope to be able to do more track days.
Next time you guys do something, let me know.  :thumb:

this must have been the first session since the second was only 1 lap and the third was (for me ) only 1 lap...pre crash:




send jesus an email at sidewazzz@yahoo.com with a description of your bike/gear/helmet and he'll email thumbnails to you for selection...
