Track Riders, Racers, Both on CLSB?

I want to know how many track junkies we have on CLSB. The number of people and interest seams to grow every year with track riding and racing. Are you a racer? Are you a track day junky? Or both? Are you interested in trying it? If so this is the rite place in the Chicagoland area to give it try and ask questions. I can count 6 tracks within a 4 to 5 hour drive at the most from the general Chicagoland area. Blackhawk, Autobahn, Road America, Putnam, Grattan, Gingerman. We are spoiled rotten here in the midwest with access to road racing courses. Ain't it great?!?!?!

It would be fitting if that bike went to another TGF member. I guess I could paint it green, could I. Shoot me a pm with price info, if you would.

So I'm guarenteed an "A" sticker by the end of the season if I buy this bike? It'll be nice to be faster than Ody for once.

I was just teasin'. I totally know it's the rider and not the bike. I've had Grasshopper pass me like I was standing still when he was on one of his POS SV's. (just kiddin' Nick!)

This offer is VERY tempting. That'd get me back on the track this year on a good bike.
