Looking to go with a few guys. Will register later this week, Saturday at the latest pending weather.

Just need to sort out towing arrangements. Not trying to ride to the track, crash, then ride home...again

Looks like the temps went from ridiculously hot to cold. Total bullshit. At what point does the ambient temperature start to affect grip? I'm slow, but not sure if I'm slow enough.

You can look at this perhaps.

Small light weight single rail motorcycle trailer used to transport sport bike and Road King Harley Davidson. Pulls well with a small car, tracks straight, no issues on the road.

I am planning on hitting Shenny on Sunday. The weather looks cold, but drier. All that can still change of course.

Grip in the first couple of morning sessions will suck, but should be OK after that.

Tempting! Especially since I'm writing a final on the 14th.

Complete $hitshow. Not to mention watching the idiot run up and down the pits on his Gixxer banging up and down the quickshifter...between every session for no damn reason. Why Lyle's staff did not kick him and Co out of the track was ridiculous.

Hey, bring it on. I will be wrestling my 2003 R1 around there. Twice a lap you have to put more weight on the nose or drag the rear brake to keep the front end close to the pavement. Its fun! 😁
