    Had a blast. Drug a knee for the first time in the first session and the VFR did pretty well. Towards the end of the day I was getting tired and lazy, I dont think I moved my upper body as much as I should have and I hit the header on the right side a few times.

    Nice vid man!

    I never got my knee down during my sessions, I really need to work on getting my upper body lower while hanging off. I kept scraping the pegs.


    Here is some footage from my VFR track excursion. Taking her back out at Texas World Speedway this Sunday.

    My buddy Jerry and I used to race his Morini 500 at Texas World back in the 90s. Those were the days.

    Nice riding. You sure this was your first TD? Pitt Race is such a flowing track, you don't need big powa to go fast. My wife really "clicked" there on her 650 and it took everything I had to run her down while she blitzed the field of riders. Definitely one of my favorite tracks to ride.

    Adeyren, most our our terrain in Texas is pretty flat.

    I did my first track on the Viffer earlier this year. Tons of fun and what a sound! My instructor told me to focus more on clean lines and not to worry too my on body position. Need to get back for some more training now that our temps are getting below 90 degrees.

    Here's my newbie vid.
