Ultimate Bachelor Party

L8BRAKER (Danny) decided he would take all the money he saved for his new R-1 and buy a ring for his lady and get married instead. You know that has to be true love! He had asked me to be his best man as he was mine a few years before and of course I said yes. Now were both past the age of Strippers, Cheeto's and hanging watching porno's and getting blasted So I thought a proper send off was to do a track day together.. . So I purchased a couple of spots at a DP school at Laguna last July.

Danny went about planning the wedding and boom it turned out to be the Saturday after our Thursday track day !! His then Fiancee ok'd the deal and requested he not fall down.

Pressure ..he was under pressure.. We had a great day, but there were a few moments that had US thinking about things. We both ride with the A guys and almost always roll out together to shread elbow to elbow..that day was no exception. We had one guy that was really braking hard..bucking and weaving into the corners like it was do or die We would pass him through a turn and he would BONZAI back by on the brakes not leaving much room for error..It was entertaining , yet a little unerving. About the next to last session we were out (me chasing) and we closed on a Triumph 595 in turn two. On the exit of 4 Danny was right behind and I was focused on a good drive out to pass both going into 5. Surprise!! The front end of the 595 tucked and the guy fell right in front of Danny causing him to stand up his bike ..just as I pulled my front to his rear on the outside..yikes! I stabbed the front brake and just slipped my front by his back by an inch or two..I thought we would touch.
That scared the crap out of me..not so much because we were going 90 mph plus, but because I could only think of the phone call to his gal..."UUUMM HI..it's Dennis..Danny kinda fell down" ..
MRS. DANNY "WHAT HOW???"
Me " I ran in the back of him"

Thanks to God's grace we did not fall...had a great day and he had a great wedding..In my liitle best man speech I kind of mentioned that we would celebrate his 25th anniversary at the Track again.. His wife was all good with it..FUN TIME.

So for the Ultimate Bachelor Party..ride LAGUNA!!!!

Here are a couple of pic's from that day!
Sorry for being so WINDY!

Your right some brotherhood..Only wish I could get L8's ass to the track more often. It is so fun riding with some one you have complete confidence in. Danny is so smooth I can read what is going on and know what can I get away with..

I knew I couldn't get away with strippers Hooli.
If I had ..the wife would have never said to buy a DUC..right?

Awesome batchler party... in fact I had two weddings (same girl, just one wedding was civil and the other was church), but not one batchler party... maybe it's time I put something together... and a track day sounds PERFECT!!!!! Thanks for the idea BudmanR6, now I will probably just have to invite you.
