Test Drive A New Yamaha With Nesba At Road America!

It's almost here! As of now this is the only time the Yamaha Demo Program will make it's way to the Mid-West this year. Don't miss out on this great opportunity! Come out and ride the new Yamaha fleet on the premiere mid-western track. Wisconsin's Road America, the very same track your favorite racers will do battle on next month. Nesba's partnership with Yamaha provides you the chance to experience Yamaha's motorcycles in the environment they were designed for. Make a day of the experience and bring your friends! Come up just for this unique experience or utilize one of your track day sessions to test drive the 2011 Yamaha's. You do not need to be a Nesba member to take advantage of the demo program. See the link below to register for your spot and get more information.

See you there!

I rode every bike they brought to Putnam last year, I hate to say, but the slowest one was the most fun - you had to work to get past people in the B group... well my fearless leader Wink was also hard to hang with.. lulz

i *think* if you are NOT a nesba member (or a nesba member not signed up for that day), you ride at the beginning of the day, likely in B group (cold track too), if you are a nesba member you ride with your regular group, you just take one of your sessions to demo the bike.

At Putnam last year they rode in every group. Could be based on being a member as Jeremy said. I loved it. I bought my gixxer because riding the R6 was so much fun (couldn't afford an R6 )

Hey now, I am old and slow, you know that, you have experienced it first hand Racer Boy. I prefer to ride the slowest bike, it gives me an excuse.

Not sure the rules this year, but as you said, last year we rode full pace in EVERY group. And MAN was that fun doing demos in A group!

And the Yamaha folks comment on how much worse the Midwest crowd is than all the other regions combined. One WEEKEND, Midwest wadded more bikes than the rest of the nation did in the SEASON. Bad rep for us...

So, I'll the hunt routine!

BTW - Hoping I can make it to this event, doing all that I can to do so.

If I could stack up a new Yammie and just leave it there and have no repercussions this might be worth it after all.
