Damn it!! I am going to be out of town this weekend!!!! lol. Maybe this is a sign I shouldn't try to race.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

How far of a ride is this track? - I would dig on watching you guys rail a bit as I am getting more stoked by this style of riding and would love to see and learn more about it

May 25th is still on, but we are always doing other days sometimes during the week spontaneously. No month in advance notice. Its kinda like the supermoto version of "who wants to go ride today" threads.

Yep, Bill and I are off every other Friday usually so we'll post up if we are heading out there. Tony mentioned that he stopped by Norway this past Friday and Les didn't let him ride because there was some huge karting event. We might want to call in advance to make sure we can ride before driving out there during the week.

Do I have to join a membership to ride at this event? Tell me more about riding there. I'm thinking that I will go for sure Sunday.

Nope. Just make sure your bike has sliders, pay $30 and you're golden.

My bike doesn't have sliders. I'm running my DTX setup with 19's front and rear with Dunlop Dirttrack tires.

I don't want to wear out any welcome not having my bike setup with sliders. Any ideas? Anyone know where I can get some sliders last minute? I have a 2004 KTM450SX

95 db sound limit eh? Is that at full bore on the gas? I'll bet that stock KTM muffler is louder than 95 db.

Do they have guys with DB meters out there or something?

What happens is the neighbors complain and we will no longer be able to ride there. Bill and I have a DB meter to do tests. I think Bills KTM with the stock exhaust is quiet enough. The track owner does have a meter and has checked us in the past. The main thing is that we don't want to lose the closest track we have to ride the supermoto bikes.

How long is that longest straight? How fast do you figure you get going?

Nick you can throw some money my way. If you want to have a membership.
Hey doing the website takes time.

Otherwise, sliders can be made quickly with skateboard wheels and threaded steel rod.

Longest straight is the back straight, I don't know the speeds going in, I don't have a speedo but somebody here has to have an idea how fast they go. I only have a 250 so I'm a little slower on the straights. Yep thats my excuse.

The back straight the fastest i got was 68Mph with GPS and that was on the DrZ 440 pig.
I wont be able to make it, wife is going to brunch and wont be home until 130pm, but i am going to go to Brad Js Club57MX motocross track right here in woodstock, its about 10 mins from my house. Killer track! Geo once it starts drying up outside, you should come out here for a class one night. they go from 5-8pm. I just did one last night. Best 50$ you will spend.

I definitely will. Would it be wise to mount up the dirt wheels on the Husky or just run it in Sumo form.
