So I got to Chico at about 12:30 and ate a few bites and went to bed.Up at 6 AM for coffee and off to Thunderhill.
Had a few finishing details to take care of, so missed the first session and got the bike tech'd.
Went out for the 2nd session. First track day in 3 years, as my last street ride ended badly. So I took my time and got the feel of the bike. Fantastic motorcycle!! Started picking up a bit of corner speed, remember how to ride THill, squirting hard off the corners. Did I mention what a fantastic motorcycle it is?
About 15 minutes in to the seesion, I'm coming hard off turn 7 and go to upshift and the throttle sticks WFO!!! Holy crap, panic brake, off the track at about 9000 RPM in 3rd gear. Bank angle sensor worked like a champ. As me and my baby were mowing the grass on the north 40, I'm thinking "kill switch, kill switch, damn this grass is slippery, I should have hit the kill switch."
