Sorry to hear about your mom, DUA. It sounds like you made a good decision. I think we have all probably been in the situation of having to bail because our head wasn't clear. You certainly made a valiant effort and the right call. Here's hoping Sept 18 brings you good weather.

Thank you for your kind words.
There's no such thing as a "REAL RIDER!". If you have a motorcycle, you've done all you need to do.

September 18:

Being the Monday after the MotoAmerica weekend saw a light turnout which means a very "roomy" track. There were only 20 of us in the (I) group so it was another mostly lonely riding day. The lower pits were rather crowded with the haulers of the major teams, using that day to do their load out. It takes a lot of work to set those guys up for the weekend, that's no easy task for those crews to do at the start and end of any event weekend. Hats off to them.
The day was hotter than I had hoped would be, but the lightly populated track offered the opportunity to get in some "concentration" and some "vision" time that I need to work on developing.
The only "incident" of note was a red flag after one lap because someone forgot to collect all their tools after doing some work because they deposited a wrench in the middle of the track at the rise to turn 13.
It will be a back to back Mondays in October, the 9th (following Vintage Fest) and the 16th.
