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.

Our instructor showing us what it means to "put now weight on the handlebars":
Knee down proper:
Knee, toe, and kickstand.... Yea, need to skooch my butt over about half-a-cheek:
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.
