Might take you up on this; i was gonna ride 3/31 with Motorcycle Xcitement, but weather doesn't look too good.

From Evolve GT website, it looks like as a guest you can't cancel - once you register, that is it. Correct?

That's the ticket.

Unless it's some kind of super popular track like Pitt Race, I usually just register once I know the weather will be good. There's generally room.

I'm not sure about their cancellation policy but I usually register about 5 days out once I get an idea of the weather.

I will be there if the weather is good. Watch out for the guy in yellow / black leathers on the Red and White SV 650 learning GP shift and finding new brake markers in Advanced. That would be me.

I am hoping to get a few more street rides on the Tuono in now that I have converted it to GP shift. That way I am just learning how to ride a bike with 1/2 the horsepower of my R1 and not a new shift pattern too.

I am strongly considering a drop in displacement given my recent Monkey experience. A friend of mine has ridden an RC390 for the past 4 years and has told me repeatedly to get rid of my big Street Triple. A Ninja 300/400 or an R3 may be in the cards. I like the idea of an SV650 as long as you can find one that's not too clapped out.

Soooo... are you coming to the track with us?

FYI - imho, both the RC390 and R3 looks sexy!

I'm going to have to tap out. My co-workers told me my bike needs a complete tear down after my trip.

After taking most of the bike apart, they were right. Stuff is seized up and/or broken.

I'll see if I can grab a friend's ninja 300 though

What the hell? I thought Ducatis were supposed to be reliable.

It's mostly chassis components like the swingarm bearings, rear shock pivot points, headstock bearings, etc. Everything exposed to the elements needs to be cleaned, lubed, and serviced.

Shouldn't be too hard to get a lube and service around here.

I may not be around. My dad was supposed to be coming up this weekend to give me a hand with my shed, but now the weather looks like a washout so we may put it off until next weekend.
