Background

I started riding track day events at the beginning of 2013 and quickly became addicted to the intensity of riding motorcycles at an extreme level. What I love about riding is that it encourages you to be fully present in the moment. It forces you to focus your concentration on how you are interacting with the bike and your plan for what you want the bike to be doing in the next given second. With some practice, that focus comes naturally and you can be fully present on the bike with very little mental effort: braking, shifting, acceleration, all happen without thought. If you find a good rhythm, you can stretch out that moment for an extended period. Any thoughts other than what you are doing at that moment & what you plan to be doing in the very next instant is all that occupies the mind when riding. I love the pure concentration that riding bikes at high speeds generates. There is nothing else that I've experienced that makes me feel as alive as when I am riding my bike faster than I ever have before while also recognizing improvement in my riding capabilities each time I ride. It's an amazing thing!

Highlights

Braking my personal barrier of a 1:50 lap time after only (2) track day events.
Perfecting my lines through the carousel (double hairpin) on Ortega Highway. Nothing feels better to me than dragging my knee confidently at over 85 mph through that double apex!

Goals

My goals for the next year are to achieve a personal best lap time in the low 1:40's at Fontana & also to ensure that I ride track days as much as possible throughout the course of the year while also making sure that I am improving each & every time I ride.
