    Putnam July 27-28

    I'm going to pay for my weekend and garage this Friday as soon as that paycheck hits. Anyone else planning on coming up for this one? if so and want to split the cost of the garage let me know. This one is being put on by MTD and Indy Ducati. And because I know it will be coming, I need to ride NCM. I'm going to do a day there in August or September for sure. Post up let me know.

    I'm on call that weekend so I'm doubtful.

    Well I lied... Because I waited for my paycheck(adult money problems), I'm now wait listed. Hopefully someone can't make it and I'm able to go.

    Crisis averted I'm signed up for the weekend at Putnam. Bad news is I can no longer split a garage with anyone, because those are all taken... @MaximumJEFF helped solve the problem with it saying novice was full. Internet proxy issues and it was all solved. I just now have to have a canopy to keep cool in this July heat.

    Dick's has 10x10 slant leg for 40 bucks. They are cheap but they are cheap if you know what I mean.

    Excellent weekend at Putnam. First time doing a weekend and I had a blast. I actually think the second day overall I was a little slower :/ I have found though that when I have a coach in front of me, I get out of my comfort zone and ride a little better. I've found I just am content with my speed and I need that push. How has anyone else figured out a way around this barrier?

    Work on something each session. Focus on that until it becomes muscle memory. Then put everything together at the end of the day. Work on such things as looking through the corner, brake/throttle smoothness, trail braking (especially this imho), lines...always lines. Body position basically comes last. It's easy to learn and get coached on.
