Lets Ride Road America! Oct. 26

Road America is having a supermoto/ kart trackday on Sunday Oct. 26

Lets make this happen boys it would be a fun day to head out and ride especially if we get a decent sized group. I can grab a trailer if we want to carpool.

Quote:
A Few Practice Days left at the Briggs&Stratton Motorplex

Greetings~

Registration for the Wednesday track days will take place in the main office as usual, while weekend registration will take place at the T & S building located at the Motorplex. All open track days are weather permitting. In case of inclement weather please call our weather hotline at 920-893-5013.


Remaining 2008 Track Days:

Saturday October 18th 9am-4pm

no noise limit, and i've never seen anyone doing tech in the past, but sliders, catch can, and SW is always a good idea

Yeah but we are talking about Joe here. Did you forget our gas and oil starting problem? I honestly believe it might take Joe 3 or 4 days of straight work to put on a different set of rim.

Partial body paralysis, ok. Wife in labor, ok. But switching a wheelset? What kind of excuse is that?

I think Joe is waiting for someone to go down there to help him out, just bring youre own beverages, you dont want a micky getting slipped in your drink and the next thing you know you wake up in the basement with a ball gag in your mouth and joe and the gimp air hammering you in the can.

Dude you've been out riding with us in the past you know how we are.

Not like your any different.


Now where's Vcook and Kruz? I think they both picked up Supermotos this year. With the karts it will probably be all pavement so no excuses.

Actually I will make it. I grew up about 10 miles from RA so I am going up Saturday morning to stay with my parents. Jen thinks shes too prego to drive 3 hours so I'll be solo (no pit girl ).

I have a trailer and can probably fit up to 3 more bikes on it and I'll have a ton of room for gear if anyone wants load up their gear you're more than welcome. The only hitch is I'll be in LA until late friday night/early Saturday morning. We'd have to load Satruday morning and you could meet me at the track Sunday.

I should make this. Even if it's rainy, snowy and/or cold I can amuse myself sitting in the Bread Truck, heater on, swigging down some brewskis watching you guys crash your brains out.
