Pavement only NWGP class

are you guys going to run in the pavement only class if NWGP runs big bikes this year? depending on how the events are scheduled I would possibly give it a shot for the joint NWGP/SBK2 weekends. and some of the stand alone NWGP dates fall nicely between the SBK2 and LOL schedule dates also.

NWGP schedule:

April 19th Badger Kartway

May 9th USAIR

May 31st Badger Kartway

June 13-14 Road America**

July 26 USAIR***

August 15 USAIR

September 12-13 Road America

October 3-4 USAIR****


** Normal Sprint weekend with a added Shootout Event Piggy backed with the AHRMA Event Camping available

*** Endurance Race Weekend. Camping available

**** Possible 2nd Endurance Race Weekend pending participation. Camping Available

Might as well, 2 sbk races, 2 -3 LOL races, 1-2 MX race a month, I need to get some more! Pavement only could be cool for awhile. I might get bored with it though.

Wow Bill! That's impressive, I make a mention of Badger Kartway at 9am and you already have 2 events lined up for us there by noon.

I bet we could get ourselves kicked out of there by July!

Seriously though, I will probably try to fit in the 2 event up there. It is only about 2hrs away for us. It is probably the closest track to Chicago right now.

Cool, the more events the better. I'm assuming they are gonna run just one "Supermoto" Class?

Edit: I added them to the event calendar. If you forgot about that here is the link

So who is going to talk to them about praticing up there, i see they have open pracitce during the week from 10am -7pm, that would be perfect for some asphalt practice before a race. 1.5 hrs from me too i like that.

Daniel is, didn't you see the other thread? If he can talk the city into a dirt jumps then he can just us on a kart track. At least temporary.

I posted something on the NWGP site to see if they have anything worked out for practice time for bikes at Badger kartway.

and according to their forum, sugar river has practice on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month starting in May

I rode around SRR on a minitard Honda crf150x. It was really fun. Anything bigger is overkill, but who cares. Good times.

Yeah, I tagged along to a thursday practice day with a buddy who races minis. If I remember correctly, we left work early and got up there around 5:00 pm, paid $20 and rode till it got dark. It was open track, maybe 8-10 other mini bikes of various displacement were there. Lots of riding crammed into a few hours and I was tired!

I thought my buddy said they don't do big bikes, not sure though. Noise didn't seem to be an issue (at that time).

I wonder if a 450 would even get out of 2nd gear on that track.

No big bikes at SRR per the guys on the NWGP forum:

FYI regarding SRR and big bikes they are not allowed. I seen the post asking on the chicago forum thought id give ya the heads up.

There are some pretty gnarly 150R's out there in sumo trim that really look the business.

I'm thinking about getting a DRZ or KLX 110 for christmas, I've wanted one for a while especially after that guy passed my YZ on the straight away at norway with one. (granted Colin said he had a ton of money invested in it but still)

Not that I know any better but it seems like a lot of riding.

I think Joe meant me literally. You know between the bike not starting, crashing and arm pump, I really don't ride that much.

Badger kart club Rule: (copied from NWGP forum)

The folks at Badger Kart Club are very nice folks and are very welcoming to us outlaw bikers. In order to keep things that way, please take notice of this important rule when visiting.... Please do not ride motorcycles in the pits. The karters push their karts to the track and/or practice track and we need to do the same. The facility does have a small oval practice track that we may have available to us, but we still need to walk the bikes to and from any riding areas. This is the only thing that is different from any other facility where general common sense and consideration is expected. You don't need to push them if you can figure out how to drag, pull, levitate, or transport by another safe means other than riding them, but pushing just seems like the right term. Thanks and I can't wait to see you all there!!! Woohaa!!!

Between the two of you guys with your old bikes - Bill - Orange Kaboom and Geo - Non starting Yammie, you guys should be well versed in pushing a bike!
