Chicagoland Supermoto TT Day Aug 31st!

Next week Sunday is gonna be the 1st ever Chicagoland Supermoto TT at Brians. Slicks or street tires on Flying Brians TT track!

Tony make sure that Brian is gonna be around.

So who is in?

Dude, CLSUMO is having some bad luck. I just got off the phone with Brian to check about riding tommorow. He has to tear down the MX track jumps due to some county flood plain regulation violation he just got served with.I think thats how the county gets to shut down tracks. He said the TT track will still run though. Ill talk to him tommorow about next weekend. Im willing to bet that Brian finds some way to create another track though. Hes pretty resourceful and doesnt like being told what to do with his land.

Its not bad luck we are just getting tested to see how hard core and resilient we are.

We will get threw the winter and come back next year stronger with better tracks and more places to ride.

Damn, another one bites the dust. What's next?
It's getting really difficult not to get in trouble riding my sm in traffic since our favorite tracks are getting shut down and I get kicked out out of all parking lots in Chicago.

The dirt track at Brian's is nice but nothing beats a nice paved track with plenty of grip or a decent mx track with a few jumps.
I'm in anyway, I have fun every time I ride with you guys.

What? Fuckin BS. Tell him to get a lawyer. That's a crock of shit. Pissant county bureaucrats getting their jollies telling other people what to do because they're little impotent nobodies.

So is anyone going to this? Should I even bother converting my bike to sumo and go?

Heres some video from today, most of the jumps are gone, all but the main one on the tt track and the big table top on the mx track and the back jump after the berm. but its still a good place to practice and once we get some rain and ride out there, we can get some good lines going and some nice natural whoops going a "Real MX track". Had a good time out there with Geo today. Joe You Suck!
