    I'm scheduled to be there. My wife's uncle is in 24 hour hospice care. There's a remote possibility that I may have to cancel.

            It'll mostly be 'Motovid Monday' this season.

                I saw some of you guys yesterday. Sorry I couldn't stop to chat, but I had to keep chasing Tammy away from other customers!

                It turned out to be a really good day. The morning was cool and the track stayed cold until the afternoon sessions when it seemed to come in somewhat. I came in after my first session and felt my tires; they were cooler than they were coming off the warmers! But everybody seemed to do a good job keeping it shiny side up.

                Anybody coming out next Mon and staying after the races???

                    Planning on being there Monday. I can't make the races though. Had a great time yesterday. I started getting down into the :21s.

                          I noticed something at this track day that I hadn't previously. There were a lot of people wearing Plus Racing Leathers. I've been doing some research the past couple days. I'm a little intrigued. Anybody have any background or personal experiences?

                            Many of the Motovid CRs got matching Motovid-branded PLUS suites this off-season. For those of us who bought them, you'll see colored patches on the humps rather than wearing color-coded t-shirts for the run groups we are working in. We all got custom-fitted suits. This is my first time with a custom suit, so the fit is something I'm getting used to. That is to say that the "proper" initial fit for a custom suit is, shall we say "snug", with the promise if it breaking in to fit you as time goes on. I've been told that it will take 2-3 track days (wearing it all day) to break in, whereas for racers it'll take a little longer.

                            So far the suit is fine. I got the upgraded integrated Forcefield armor, which I like so I'm not having to mess around with a separate back protector. The seat/legs are slippery so I was sliding around the seat a lot. I asked and Eric (the US PLUS representative) said that the suits are coated with teflon to help you slide in the case of a get-off, but will wear over time in the areas in contact with the seat/tank.

                            Time will tell, but so far so good.

                              Thanks Badger! I was surprised how many people beyond just the CRs that were also wearing them. It also added a touch of professionalism to the staff. You all looked good!
