To my gun carrying friends, avoid this business (@wethepeopleholsters). Their products are good, but the customer service is horrible. Been waiting for weeks and still nothing shipped, even thought their site says "Fast Delivery, All Items in Stock". They even blocked me from their Facebook page for commenting with others that we still haven't received anything. :(
That’s it, I’m out!
Well, at least for this year. 🙂 Another great day at the track, the temperature was perfect and for the first time in recent years I was able to enjoy the day without rain, cold or blistering hot temps.
I was so happy to see Dave Moss (@davemosstuning) there as I’ve been wanted to get his hands on Juicy to work out the kinks I’ve had since the git go. “Best 40 bucks you’ll spend on your bike”, so true. Dave is a genius at setting up bikes and after the first few session, he had the bike feeling so much better and I enjoyed the rest of the day working on the cornering tips he provided.
I’m quickly realizing that I need to work harder to get in better shape as these days really take their toll by the mid afternoon sessions. Over winter I’m going to increasing my cardio program so next year I’ll have more endurance throughout the day.
Although I’m not planning any more track days for 2017, I can’t wait to get back out there. I feel my progress has been slowed a bit as I adjust to the new bike, but with each new ride I feel more and more confident. Looking forward to working harder in 2018 and maybe finally getting that knee on the ground. 🙂
Cali Photography (@caliphotovideo) was there to capture my moves, and Let’s Ride (@letsridetrackdays) put on another great event. We agreed as a group that we need to check out Chuckwalla Valley Raceway (@chuckwallavalleyraceway) next year, and I’m hoping we can all work it out to ride together.
@josh_herrin, @jonjon.442, @daxshepard, @channingtatum, @tonycarbajal, missed you all by a week. Chuckwalla next year?
This will finish out the track pictures for the year. 😉 I need to get some street action going before the rain starts. ☔

All weights tonight, hit highs in pull overs, back arms and incline press. Matched highs in sitting rows and dumbbell curls. Feels great to be back on top. A year and eight months, still going strong. #friday#workout#fitbit#fitbitblaze#weights @fitbit @xmarkfitness @powersystems @bodysolidfit
Some photos from an awesome day at @buttonwillowraceway. Thanks to @caliphotovideo for doing their absolute best to make me look fast. 😀
Thanks to @alanbryant70 for following me on occasion and letting me know what changes I could make to better my cornering. It was so helpful to get advice from a friend I truly trust and rider who continues to amaze me.
It was good to get back on the track and try to put to rest the demons I found here the last time. I was finally able to get some laps on the new bike and become more accustom to its grace and precision. This thing is truly built for the track and dissimilar to the street bike I previously brought to the track. I felt stronger and stronger every time I went out and I could feel my heart pounding with excitement after each session.
My new @janman.ent leathers were awesome. It was so nice riding for the first time in leathers that were made just for me. They matched the bike perfecting and I may have been the best looking slow guy out there. 😂
Oh, but did I mention the heat? It was hot, but that wasn't going to stop our fun. Although at track speeds the heat was fine, the time in between sessions is when I really felt the sheer force of the blazing temperature. We rode well into the afternoon but decided to call it quits when it was just too hot to enjoy the rest of the day.
Thanks to @letsridetrackdays for putting on another great event. Always a pleasure to ride with this group and I look forward to many more days to come.

Who's ready for some riding? Tomorrow is the big day. Temps look l like they'll be in the low 90's, smoke is in the air from the Yosemite fires but we've seen much worse. Meeting at Oakbucks at 9:00am with kickstands up at 10:00am. Rebecca (@onesweettable) will have an awesome meal waiting for us on our return so tell those not riding to meet us after for the BBQ at Fresno Flats.
Can't wait to see you all tomorrow.
Apparently, you can't put the numbers 69 on your license plate here in California. It seems the plate I chose "69NICKY" which I wanted to put on my Repsol to commemorate the former world champion, was denied by the California Department of Motor Vehicles because "The plate configuration has a sexual connotation, or is a term of lust or depravity"... I'm so sick of this PC world we live in today and how everything nowadays either offends someone or is thought to be something it is not. #ripnickyhayden#nickyhayden#godspeed#rip#69#kentuckykid#legend#honda#repsol#champion#motogp#ama#wsbk#gonicky#hondafamily
