    At what point is it inappropriate to keep doing this, asking for a friend...

    Back at Barber when you and I went... That's when it should have changed.

    @McLovin'; I have a little over 4000 laps at Putnam, if you want to talk about the track before heading up, I could probably spare some time and discuss it with you. I've held a couple of classes for people to discuss track riding, and specifically at Putnam. I know you have a schedule that revolves around things happening in Louisville, so if you wanted to grab lunch downtown, I'd be happy to talk to you that way and show you some videos, answer any questions you might have.

    Let me know. Also, if anyone else wants this, let me know, my evenings and weekends have been busy with remodeling a bathroom, but I could probably make an hour or two.

    Might have to do a little bit of reading unless you speak Italian, but what do you all think about this guy's video? Is it true or is there some other reason for this? Because if it will make me more comfortable and smoother I am all for it.
