Default Track Day shake down ride

I visited NJMP for my shake down ride for the season. Video link attached, I think. It was a little cool out, but we had a good day. Not sure the tires ever got fully heated. I was following a friend for the first 4 minutes or so, then then went on my own.

Almost forgot how fast that track it. I love it for the flow. Did you ride with TPM? I have to make it to NJMP at least twice this season.

That was a last minute email invite from N2. They sent an email saying that they had spots and no late charges.

There were about 50 people in 3 groups, so maybe 15 people on the track. You can see how open the track was in the video, real nice.

It drizzled a bit in the AM on the first session (that keeps your attention, especially on the repaired pavement) but after that it was cool and overcast until the last couple sessions.

The ran until 6 pm, no crashes, so lots of riding.

Good start. I am going back on Monday with TPM, weather looks good.

Also, if anyone wants to meet up, glad to do so when I am going. Especially if you are new to the scene, glad to help you get oriented.

i HATE the drive but would be really curious about going to NJMP after 4 years of TDs and 3 years of racing. I really enjoyed the track the 2x I rode it, but I was still a super-noob at that point.
