Practice Track Diaries The Wick 338 04/06/2019
« on: April 15, 2019, 04:33:34 PM »

To say that I like the wick would be an understatement. I fashion myself of Dutch descent with the sand mastery skills of the greats Herlings, DeRouver, Strijbos, Van Der Ven and Van Den Berk. In reality, Im just a nutmegger of English and French Canadian descent with no skills mastered or speed for that matter. I do get around alright despite this and I'm sure I feel the same as the aforementioned, ask me, I'll tell ya its true.

I was supposed to meet up with my southern crew, you know the guys from longed Island, but there was rain predicted the night before, not much, but enough to scare those rebels away.
 The track was actually perfect KJ and crew did a masterful job prepping the circuit for some good 'ol OP. The Southerners missed out. When the rebel yell, she cried " NO NO MORE, NO NO MORE!" Any way after last years rain debacles here you cant blame them.

So with not much fanfare I rode well, gaining back much of the technique I lost over the winta months. What has been most surprising is what the six months of diet and physical training has done for me on the bike. There's something about being 180 lbs as opposed to 225 lbs on a 125cc. The only draw back is I am out riding the stock suspension on the 1990 CR. Had some oh shit moments because of it LOL.
 To give testimony to my new found condition and ability, at about 2 pm and my final session of the day (5th for those counting) I chased down and passed a vet expert on his new 450. This light a fire under him and he went back around, but I dogged him till the end of session. Last year this never would have happened, jeez the past 15 years this wouldn't have happened! LOL. well it was fun and in two weeks I do it again at Central Village Cycle Club, Yup that place I swore I would never return to. till next time!
