Hello everyone, My name is Doug Knight and I am just getting back into riding after 16 years away from it and unfortunately I don't do moderation real well so I bought a Ducati 1198S for fathers day, decided I should do some track days with it, but realized that was a big investment to lean real hard into the corners and a month later I added a fully race prepped 2007 R6 to the garage(tricked it out pretty good too), which meant I needed a two bike trailer, and of course now a new SUV for towing. Did one track day in Seattle last month and was hooked AGAIN and signed up for 2-day camp in Vegas coming up in November. I used to race a Hurricane and rode a 1990 FZR 1000 on the street back then and even took the CSS at Laguna Seca in 1991, but had to give it all up to become an orthodontist and since then everyone has steered me away from bikes (something about my hands????), but now those influences aren't chirping in my ear anymore(yes the ex. has moved to Mexico and our daughter is off to college). So I am looking forward to doing it better/faster/safer this time from the get go and CSS seems like the best place to start.....again.

Looking forward to Vegas for all the right reasons.

Doug

Yeah, you seem to be struggling to get your hands on any decent bikes to ride. Not sure how you live with quandry myself brother, 999R or Fireblade. oh, the agony of choice! :lol:

Bullet,

Douglas is a new member and hasn't experienced the level of sarcastic civility that some on this forum possess. I see that you are in the teaching mode :blink:

Welcome to the forum! I'm not sure what it's like to be as poor as you obviously are :rolleyes: but at least you are in the right place for information.

I am going to Streets this weekend, when is your Vegas class?

Howdy. I'm guessing you're doing the two day later in November. I'm doing Oct/Nov. Good luck. Hope to see you on the forum.

November 21/22.

Poor is a relative term. I'd trade some coin for some better lap times.....hey wait, that's why I am taking the classes.

Have fun in California, by the way, how long is the drive from Willows to Palm Desert. I go there a lot and maybe I could connect the two locations with the same visit south?

Yes that is correct.

Thanks and you will.

Only if you can carry a set of clubs for 36 holes......I need a good caddie too.

 

I think carry might be a bit strong, he's getting on a bit ya know. Surely you American's have machines for that kind of thing surely? The wife's a good starter surely? (luckily mine doesn't read this forum).

36 holes?!?!??! Are you in some kind of Super Endurance Golf Championship? I'm usually exhausted after 18.
