Actually, Maroon and Moron have similar connotation and in the context of the above posted... it works just fine assuming your are referencing the meaning to be about smarts rather than race.

Moran is the last name of the actress that played Joanie Cunningham.

Here ends today's english lesson.

I know. I have only done 7 track days and only recently moved out of novice into intermediate.

It FEELS like I am hanging way off, but then I see the photos and I'm not.

What I learned last track day (with the help of the photos) is I need to greatly exaggerate my body positioning.

The track day before that I learned how to properly break before entering a turn. I look better here:





That being said, I was also taking it easy. The track was still wet with standing water in places.

Shes got it:



this is the guys doing the CMRA school



and here is a link to all the pics form that day should you want to keep looking

If you think about it, I think you'll agree that, in this particular case, proper spelling changes the meaning quite significantly. I, personally, try never to break before a turn. (Or after, or between them... ever really.)

Proper braking, I'm a huge fan of.

Looks like a cross between a Goldwing and a wardrobe, perhaps they keep their clothes in it?
