    It was nice meeting you Gabe. You're the perfect example of why we work so hard to put these events together and make sure we have the best staff.

    Regarding your T4 crash. NOT being on the gas is likely why you tucked the front tire. Some articles that may help explain.

    Regarding street riding: My street jacket has a high-viz vest and my bike has a top box and I am proud of it. http://www.ridinginthezone.com/wp-co...ade_2010-2.jpg

    My track riding makes me enjoy street riding MORE. I am well within my comfort zone at all times. You just need to separate the two...they are similar, but not the same.

    Two very good reads as always, Ken. I very much enjoy reading your articles and they have helped me immensely on the street and now as well as on the track. Good stuff!

    Wait, Wait, Hold UP! I was not told reading was required!

    (Funny how when reading is for your pasion you eat up the pages, but when it's "required" work or otherwise, it's like watching paint dry)
    Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

    Glad you had a good time and were able to recover from your off.

    As others have mentioned, these are the best of times. Enjoy them as fully as possible.

    I am envious of people such as yourself where every trip out of the paddock is a revelation and the learning comes so naturally and quickly.

    Enjoy it!
