    Congrats John,

    My brother has been doing that going on a year and a half out on the tracks in Northern California and Navada. He says its a blast. He's also said that its made him a better rider.

    On a side note....Great bike.

    Awww man that brings back memories of my half assed attempt to race. Never did actually "race". I just took my gixxer to summit point (WV) on track days. I loved it. I had a licence from MARRC for 2 years. Thats a pretty expensive hobby and as soon as i had a mortgage then track weekends were done. I enjoyed building the bike (track prepping) more than racing. Getting on the track with some experienced guys and you not only realize how slow you are, they'll let you know. loads of fun though.

    Got my professional racing license at Jennings (Florida) on January 26. Formed a racing company - Half-Fast Racing, LLC. Already ran 2 days at Jennings, 2 at Road Atlanta, 2 at Little Talladega, and 3 at Barber in Alabama this year. All track days setting up bike, suspension, power commander, and getting times recorded and analyzed. Living the dream these days - downsized OneVision to a very managable company, no longer chasing big contracts (just good steady customers).

    I served my time on the front lines now enjoying "parole".....might even compete in the rodeo again this year just for the heck of it!

    Be safe, live every day like it's your last, give thanks to God for EVERYTHING, give it all you've got, and tell those that you love how much they mean to you every single chance you can!
