Attention Denver Colorado metro riders. Chicane will host another track day 9-5-11. The last one was really worthwhile IMHO. Excellent instruction. Limited number of riders on the track. Held at HPR which is 60 miles east of Denver. Here is the link: chicanetrackdays.com/register.html I hope I haven't broken any rules by posting this event. I'm not affiliated but I am a satisfied customer and I just want to make this information available to the ninja 250 community.

Fo sho slolee! Unfortunately I have not the funds to do this one - I have to take a trip to Oregon instead, what a shame.... Are you the blue 250? Not sure which face I know to place with the name, ya know?

So here are some pics of me at the track. They came in, and I was finally able to get into my mailbox to retrieve them. I would say not bad for my first track-day proper, ever... Sure, I've been to IMI, but that's a little track, and you can get some serious speed at HPR, so it was a lot more exhilarating!

I now know much more about what I need to change to take my riding up a notch... On the track, of course. :D

Me chasing down a Duc in the corners, he left me for dead in the 2 striaghts:


Our instructor showing us what it means to "put now weight on the handlebars":


Knee down proper:


Knee, toe, and kickstand.... :D Yea, need to skooch my butt over about half-a-cheek:


Yebo:


It was hot! I got in 6 20minute sessions before I decided to call it quits, 4 of which were with the teacher. 92F is not easy for an air conditioned desk sitter to handle.

Had an absolute blast! Can't wait to go again!

Chicane track day

Spooph, you rock! :dance: Sorry you can't make the track day. Have a good trip to Oregon. BTW I'm the blue ninja. My form :nonono: is a work in progress. Felt good by the end of the day.

Felix, yes, there is! It's awesome driving up the 2 big hills just to slam on the breaks for the corners at the top, and then rolling on the throttle all the way down the hill... :p

Slolee, it was a gas! We'll do it again some time!
