Rogentx Posted May 30, 2015 Report Share Posted May 30, 2015 Hey there everyone, As you can see by my only one post, I'm new lol.(I will update my profile soon, right now at work) I haven't signed up for the school yet but I certainly plan to before September 13th. Just to give a brief (or as brief as I can) introduction about myself. I am a *cough* 30 something year old rider in Bakersfield. I've been riding sports bikes for couple of years now, but originally started back when I was 18. The first bike I had was 1997 Honda Shadow. I rode that for couple of years before my dad sold it. I planned to get a bike of my own shortly after, but due to horrible proscanation on my behalf, I waited until '12 to get back into it. I finally bought a Yamaha YZF600R, but had lot of problems with it so actual riding was short. I make the mistake of pushing my limit in twisties; The road went left but I went right (too hot). I wasn't hurt too bad aside from torn ligament in my left ankle, which still does bother me now and then. The bike was totaled out, and in turn, got a 2003 Honda CBR600RR. I was little bit more cautious this time around, and went a little too slow in twisties after that (Highway 33, 190, 155, Granite Road (which I had my first wreck)The Snake I have gotten little better or so I thought. I like to record my rides and although I did managed to get a few knee drags in, it was all in the wrong BP. Earlier this year in January, I was coming home from a local twisty road and making a casual 30 MPH left turn, and hit either oil or black ice, which caused a low slide. I had full leather on and I was okay (small dime size road rash) but unfortunately my bike was not. I had frame sliders on it, and it end a curb dead center in the engine, end up being totaled out. A month later I bought my current bike, a 2012 Yamaha R6. I did my first track day just a week ago on Sunday. I loved it, and I had lot fun, even gained more confidence. I recorded only my first and second session which was probably the most horrible speed and body position ever lol. After the third, fourth and half the five session, I did much better and gotten little better with my BP. I am signed up for trackdaz on August 1st, then doing another program called' let's ride' on the 16th, so thankfully when I do go to CSS, i'll have little bit more experience going in. However, I am up to learning anything and everything possible, and being that I heard this school is one of the best, you know I had to sign up, or in this case, soon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
