Ducati New York Track Experience Round 2

After getting rained out for Ducati New York's first Track Experience of the year... we got rained out again.  :(
 Albert showed up with his brand new V4 Corsa (below), and Jerry on his 1299.
 It was sunny out for a bit, but mixed with torrential thunderstorms that kept the track all wet.
 Dave took out his multistrada, prepping it with his wife's help!
 And Jessie took out (and I think crashed) his old Multistrada.
 Tommy was NOT amused by the rain.
 But that was kinda the mood; we were all raring to go
 ... but rain kinda dampened the atmosphere.
 Lyndon had some fun...
 but there was little that could cheer the spirits of poor old Tommy Naples.
 Still pretty fun to hang out with friends though,
 as Brian changed Tommy's tire.
 And the prettiest bikes from Charlies Chop Shop stayed under the tent for most of the day.

Ladies Invitational Track Day at NYST

I've been up at the track all weekend, but today is was put together to bring women (who might otherwise not venture) out to the track, for a day of instruction and track time.

Late July at New York Safety Track

Las Vegas was fun, but I was itching to get back to the track.  I'm also having my floors redone (for the second time in as many years, as it wasn't done right the first time), so I have no home to come back to.  Guess I'll just go straight to the track!
So, my girlfriend picked me up in the morning at Newark airport from a redeye from Vegas, and we found a park (which turned out to be Liberty National Park), threw down a blanket like the (temporarily) homeless people we were, and took a nap till I had to drive to La Guardia a few hours later to drop her off for a flight for a work trip.
Then I turned around and headed north towards Harpersfield to New York Safety Track!!

Gotham Ducati Track Day at NJMP

My boys from Gotham Ducati in NYC are joining me at the track today.  James showed up after dinner last night, but Jerry and Tommy got in late. They decided to ride down, and didn't get in till after midnight and unbelievably, they rode down from NYC.

RideHVMC Track Day during the Solar Eclipse at New York Safety Track

After the DESMO BBQ, a few Desmo and East Coast Duc members Glenn, Melissa, Michael and I were going to head up a few hours north to Harpersfield, to New York Safety Track, one of the favorite racetracks for speedy motorcyclists.

Tigh Loughhead Track Day: Tigho goes to New York Safety Track on his Ducati 996
Tigho's First Track Day: If you look closely, you can see my raw determination, fear and unadulterated exhilaration.
So, after nearly four years of riding a Ducati in New York City, one of my friends finally got me out to the race track on my 996.  I'll tell the full story in a later post...
