El Chato's 1st trackday

Following El Chato aka GI Jose at Barber for his first trackday. He was surprisingly fast for his first day and even dragged knee. By this last session he was dragging in a couple of spots around the track and not just stretching out to touch... it was cause he was moving.

Don't pay any mind to my bad lines. Found out my rebound was way off and I desperately need my forks revalved. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Also BigBallin makes a cameo appearance for half a lap.

Sweet! I've got to get to Barber, that track looks awesome, especially that long right-hander after the straight (turn 2?).

Nice vide, glad you guys had fun out there.

That nervous feeling is quickly wiped away with adrenaline, excitement and sensory overload. Between the smells of race gas, the sounds of the bikes all day, and the fun it is, you will be in motorbike heaven.
