After purchasing the 1198S I knew I needed to do some track time so I signed up with a local group called Team Promotion through one of its members who was a forum friend from my old days in audizine.com.
After signing up I had to get ready and so I proposed a Philly run to my friends just so I could go to the Revzilla boutique and order the stuff I needed.
Once we got there, I was blown away by the amount of things I wanted!! lol but I ended up decked out on Alpinestars;
Alpinestars Motegi Race Suit
Alpinestars SMX 6 Boots
Alpinestars GP Pro Gloves
Time to hit the track
As I am sure a lot of you know, going to revzilla is a wonderful experience. The costumer service is superb and everyone is just super friendly (shout out to Rafael who was more than awesome helping me!).
It is 5:00 AM on a cold October morning, I am excited, nervous and not looking forward to riding the bike for two and half hours in 45 degree weather to the track.
Thinking I am going to die of hypothermia I make it to the track where I meet up with my friend Craig and his tracked out 848, we join the introduction class to get some pointers and off we go!
It was an amazing experience, one I`d recommend anyone who likes riding motorcycles; one thing I tell anyone that asks me about going to the track is that you will definitely find out how big your hmmm "cojones" are.
Bonus story, that was my birthday and my girlfriend at the time had thrown me a surprise party... well lets just say I was very late and we are no longer a couple...
