Cinco said:Ha Ha! At least you had the balls to post the crash as well as the riding! I went to grattan for a track day this summer. My first track day, and yes I can not wait to go back! So much fun, and so little other distractions so you can really learn to feel out your bike and what you can do, or cant do! I am thinking of just setting one bike up for track days only. No sense in screwing up my daily rider. Plus pulling all the tape off my lights sucks.
I made it out to thundebird one Thursday just to check it out. Was fun to watch those guys. Gotta make it on weds with the bike ready to "run" and have some fun.

I've been riding around here for the past 13 years and your best bet IMHO is North on Romeo Plank to Armada Center (go East about 1/2 mile), then North on Capac Rd. Take that North for 10 miles or so and you'll start to see some pretty nice roads.
Also, try Orion Rd. up to Silverbell - go right on silverbell for say 5-10 miles and you'll run into some nice roads in that neck of the woods.
One more, take Rochester road North all the way to Lakeville. You'll run into Lakeville lake, but before you do, you'll run through some decent twisty's, and there are plenty more in and around that area.
I go out to Grattan raceway about 6 times per year to get my fill of the track. It's about 2 1/2 hours from Shelby and $ 150 per day. Believe me it's worth it. Track riding ruins you for any "twisty's" you'll find on public roads. It's the ultimate riding experience, I highly recommend it.
heard that. those things are scary enough in my car! plus the smell of millions of dead fishflies is enough to keep you off the road...Odog said:It's fun until those fishflies are in season. I learned the hard way. Damn near wrecked because the road was slick.
