go to the track just about every thursday afteroon (except this week, I have to work) at MAM in Omaha NE, I just got back from doing Barber in Birmingham, and I rode Gateway in St. Louis last year so I think I have something like 12 trackdays or something silly like that. I want to go to Hallett and am supposed to go to Heartland park at some point this year...and back to Barber (god I can't wait for that one)

I've been on the track 3 times this year so far.
Have another track day coming up on July 11th.

It's harder to get track time in with our seasons, there's barely any riding season as it is. Also getting time off work to go to the track is another issue.

I did track days for a year, then raced for a year. My husband and I are taking this year off (he's overseas). Of course, I'll be rusty when I get back on the track. VIR in Danville, VA is great, Roebling Road, GA is not bad, but I'd love to do Barber.

I've been to Road America twice, and two sessions at Blackhawk Farms twice... first time was intro with NESBA, second time there I crashed in the second session. :a2

I've got a new custom suit, some new mods coming for the bike, and my health insurance began on the 1st... now I'm just waiting for my parts to be on my bike, and the next local track event (end of July).

I hope I'm not too slow after my spectacular crash...

hey japbike, when in october??? if it is right around the 2nd/3rd of the month (like 4th or something) I would be in for that....I'll have to be back at work on the 7th so i'll need to start back by the 6th but the bf and me would be interested if it is during the week before that. we are doing barber the 2 and 3rd. talladega isn't too far away from there.

what all tracks do we have here in Florida? websites? i always enjoy watching the superbikes on speed, i think it would be awsome to be somewhat close to being able to ride like that.

I know there is a track in Homestead and there is Moroso--that's about the only tracks I know in Florida where one can get on and go on them. And of course there is Daytona which you can do amature stuff on especially before Bike Week. Hope that helps ya hun!!

It is awesome to be on one and leaning into those corners---uhhhh---I am so jonesing to get back on. I am having withdrawals!!! :alky That's my drug right there!!!! ;)
