Great to see you finally got out there, and welcome to the addiction. >:)

You look fine in the pictures... maybe relocate your knee pucks is all haha. Also it might be safer if you get a tinted visor instead of wearing sunglasses inside the helmet.

I would suggest using a tinted visor instead of wearing glasses. It will help increase yor field of view a little and reduce a possible distraction. I used to wear glasses underneath the lid too. I learned that either not wearing them or spending the extra 30-40 dollars on a tinted visor was much more confidence inspiring. I realize some visors are nearly 80 dollars as well. I would bite the bullet and buy it anyway.

Glad you had such a good time at the track.
How tall are you? It looks like you're 6'4" or so any you're kinda poking your leg out there. Its always harder for tall guys to get super low on the bike.
BTW: +1 on taking it easy your first track day.

mmmm cost of the even track was like 140 hotel was 80 and gas to get there was covered by the guy with the trailer so that was pretty much it... i guess i could count the cost of a new set of tires but they were still fine for the road but they wont be track worthy again ive put to many street miles on them



and my hieght is 6'0"


it was at harris hill near austin look it up if you all are interested
