Fishtail: Loudon, NHMS: May 16, 2011

So I won a Fishtail trackday raffle at last year's DESMO Holiday Party, which I used on Monday, May 16, 2011 at Loudon.  I paid for Terry to join in the fun.  We headed up to New Hampshire on Sunday, driving though lots of rain.  Forecast didn't look good so I brought my SV650 with me, figuring it had better tires for the wet and I didn't want to risk it with the Ninja, besides I figured if I brought the SV, it probably wouldn't rain.  Well my logic held, as we lucked out and it only barely misted a few short times during the trackday!
I had a great time ripping it up with my new found confidence acquired from the California Superbike School day the week prior.

Here are some photos from Mark J Snyder aka



Terry's new paint.

Terry ran out of time to get his track plastics painted, so he decided to let me spray paint them, and asked for my urban camo special. Here he is putting his plastics back on the bike, in the hotel parking lot.... the night before our California Superbike School day (May 9, 2011).

 kitty with attitude... guess he doesn't approve.

 Terry's new (to him) van.. our new trackday transporter. 

I think I did a pretty good job with the paint.
