Sumo spots

So I found a newly built, not occupied warehouse, by my house last night that turns out to have a pretty fun little Sumo course built into it. It has a couple of longer straights in it that I just took it easy down but the parking lot dividers and roads between warehouses made for some fun. There is also a pretty descent "jump" on the "back-straight". It's more of a whoop-di-doo but if you hit it fast enough you'll get some good air.

PM me for details if you live close to Joliet.

Post up details of your spots...

I would suggest keeping location to PMs.

pretty much any industrial park, housing development, large construction site, or empty parking lot is usually fun on a sumo. I don't ride on the street much other than going to/from work, but there's a few spots that I visit occasionally if I go out at night or on weekends.
