T13 & T14 on Autobahn South.

I don't know why, but I like and am fast (for me) through pairs of rights like that. I also liked 9&10 at Putnam for the same reason.

T2 at Barber. Long right hander that's downhill. Tons of fun.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Putnam #1. Totally awesome. Drop 1 gear, touch the brakes and throw it in well over 100. No idea how fast because there's no time to look at the speedo.

Grattan has got to be my 2nd to favorite track. Mid Ohio is my favorite. I haven't been to a lot of tracks so I'm sure my mind will change as time goes on. There are so many that I want to ride, I want to ride them all, but the top tracks on my list to try are Barber, VIR, Jennings, Daytona, Barber, Laguna.... The list goes on and on

Yup Putnam turn 1 is sweet. I've only ridden it on a gsxr 1000 but I can imagine on my SV it's 6th gear WFO.

Basically all of putnam except turn 7, I don't like the guard rail on the outside of the track so close.

Autobahn North turn 3 is fun to haul ass into, as is 4 and 5.

Blackhawk turn 3

Gingerman- the two left handers that end up being one big corner with a decreasing radius minus the cracks.

+1 on Grattan. I was thinking about #3 as my #1 fun turn. Nothing like a blind off camber left hand that has a groove that can be measured in inches to keep things interesting. #6 is a fun peg scraper too.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

come on guys pick 1 and only one. The other corners are not going to get jealous and go psycho on you .

Jennings looks very fun. I am toying with the idea of a spring break trip. Ride Jennings GP on a weekend and lay on a beach in Panama City for a few extra days too.
