What a blast! I learned a lot, had a great time, and got Dave's bike back to him in 1 piece BTW Thanks again dave for the use of the f4i. My only complaint was that during the last few session, people started to forget were they weren't supposed to pass. Most of those people were instructors Other than that...it was awesome. I will post pics later....I is tired!

Here are some pics. unfortnuetaly, due to the red flag right before our session, they didn't get a lot of pics of the novice group. It's too bad too, Mike only got pics during our slow sessions!

yup thats why i wont do a track day with these guys those same instructor cause manas to wreck due to the instructors passing in an area that was suppose to be off limit giving him a broke collar bone. an one of the instuctors that sticks in my mind is number 6 on his yellow jersey or bike number 666 hes been black flag a few times and warned about stuffin people in a corner when hes suppose to be helping people learn to ride and enjoy the race track.

Dave, here I thought you couldn't do trackdays due to medical reasons.
And it was at a Dial-it-in trackday that Manas went down and broke his collarbone. Not STT/CalSportbike.


When I took STT's school (pre Cal-Sportbike), in the afternoon after the classroom sessions are done, when the Novice Group is on the track, they told me that they will go through the group on track to evaluate the riders. At Pahrump, Todd paced me for about 3/4 lap. He then passed me on the outside of turn 2 (giving me a thumbs-up) and went to pace another rider. The next lap I caught up to the next rider/instructor and passed both of them in turn 4.

ok my mistake about the manas wreck but i do know the number 6 instuctor bike number 666 has stuffed several people in the past trackdays ive corner worked and i know this because ive had the riders come up to me complaining about him whiel i was helping with the starting grid. and hes been black flagged and talked to by the track officals and yes im ot suppose to due track day due to medical reasons but the desire to still ride is there and the doc advised me its not a good idea to do track days but he wasnt 100% agaist it my gurls agaist it because she doesnt want me hurt any more then i am



so i will applauigise to todd for the comments i made earlier about manas's wreck my mistake im sorry for that todd* but that still doesnt make up for mister #666 yellow jerey #6 whom is a stt/cal sport bike instuctor actions for doing unsafe things in a lower skill level group and i under stand hes got to get around the track to look at other riders but endangering other novice level riders to go find others

but ok now im thinking maybe this yellow #6 guy might be a stt guy not one of todds so if im wrong about that im sorry for that too. all the trackday company kinda worktoghter so its hard to tell whos really from which company i mena its cool that the all help out each other it jsut sucks when one person acts up and it comes back on the wrong people

I did notice that there is a #666 bike in the pics of Cal Sportbike instructors. So you might be onto something if others have complained.
