I would like to thank everyone that had anything to do with putting on the GP Jennings track day.
The instruction was top notch , you could tell they really cared, In the future I believe this should be posted for all to see since many trailered their bikes there,
I'm sure we could have filled all 25 spaces had others knew about this , a reason for a winter vacation in Florida !
After wearing that racing suit in the Fl. sun please keep this event in the winter
I do hope this is put together again.
I took my bike to my next door neighbors HD cycle shop to install ZX!4 forks , tires , rear shock I thought three weeks was plenty of time to get it done.
after 12 days I checked on my bike to be told the forks don't have a place for the ABS sensor so they put it back together and did nothing, did not call to tell..
In the pile of stuff I left including service manual was a instructions on drilling the right tube to fit sensor... then tells me he has health issues and does not
want to do the work, I guess if you smoke and get wasted every day it catches up to you ...
So I took the bike home pulled the wheels off cause he said I'll mount you tires and that's it , he has top of the line equipment
So I take him the wheels and I get one excuse after another, then when he does get the tires off he brakes both air pressure sensors
So I get the sensors the day I was to be leaving and they don't come with some special nut, no one knows anything about them , nothing at the hardware store fits? 10mm is too small 12mm too big.
Then I open the package of new front brake pads from Motorcycle Superstore only to find one set BO on the other
have drive to the Fort Meyers dealer
cause no one in my town has them , So at 9pm Thursday we get it all back together with regular valve stems,nothing else could go wrong right,
wrong , Wife tells me the drain is plugged for the house AC unit and we have water on the floor...9:15 PM
I try to get 2 hours sleep and leave at 12:45 AM to drive five straight hours to get
to the Ga, border pull in at 7AM , had to stop and lay on rest stop park bench a few times.
I only drink 1/3 of a cup of coffee in the morning 1/3 at lunch , well I'm drinking full cups along with three 5hour energy to keep pushing on...
I should NOT have been on that track , I was sleep walking , seriously , the mind was not working , I forgot how to drive...
Being able to manage on the street is one thing , to be in a new situation like that with instructors making many points , they bounced off...
On top of it all I wore a new set of work boots that did not bend well in the tuck with very aggressive Vibram soles that would not move on the pegs
After scraping my boots about ten times I said screw this , I could not concentrate for lack of sleep and the boots dragging was very unnerving , It did not
help when some small women on a 250 sport bike passed right in the apex where we were told NOT to pass .
Next time I'll have the RV and well rested or I will not participate
