Putnam Park

July 26th and 27th....... who`s in?


I`m there for both days. The first day it`ll be 2 CBR1000RR`s in our pit area. Then a third CBR1000RR on the second day.

That place destroys tires. I love the track but jeeeesh. I can make the same tires last twice as long at different tracks.

Does anyone have extra trailer space leaving from the Chicago-land area? I would love to attend this date but don't want to ride the bike to a track weekend 4.5 hours away
Of course, I would split gas and other costs

forecast looks like it`s getting better now:
friday cloudy 20% chance high 81 low 68
saturday isolated t-storms 30% chance high 87 low 68
sunday partly cloudy 10% chance high 88 low 66
just checked and updated the forecast from the weather channel on comcast. i`m sure it`ll change again but i`ll already be on my way there.

no more updates

Guys and gals,

I'll be directing and if you want one on one coaching let me know after the first set of sessions start. Also, please introduce yourself so I can put the name (and CLSB handle) to the face...especially if you hot (guys don't apply as hot-just a disclaimer on the guy part )

It will be a good time. Looking forward to it
