Cruiser Track Day @ Autobahn North 6/17

Want To Improve Your Riding Skills? (or just have fun?!)

Ever wonder what it would be like to work on your cornering skills, braking skills and just all around handling skills in a controlled environment? Well, if you really want to get familiar with your bike, the best way to do that is to repeat, repeat, repeat each skill in a safe environment. Race tracks are among the safest environment that you can hone your skills.

Race Track? On a Cruiser?!!

Yep! Put your Harley, BMW, GoldWing, or custom on the Track. Autobahn has coordinated a special event June 17th (Father’s Day weekend) to give you access to Autobahn Country Club track. You’ll get an excellent seminar introducing you to the track environment at 3:30pm for about an hour. Prep to go out on the track and then we can run on the track from about 5:05pm until approximately 8:30pm (weather and light permitting).

We’ll rotate on and off the track in half hour sessions. As you come off the track for a break, get some more coaching from Control Riders who were out there watching you ride. Don’t want coaching? No problem.

Autobahn is making this an exclusive cruiser event, and it will be the first event of this kind that they have ever hosted.

Additional things that we can do if there is interest, is to open this up to make a “Bike Show” for all of the track riders, and non-track riders as well. So, it could be a fun event, just south of here in Joliet.

I have personally ridden both tracks at Autobahn at speed, and can tell you first hand, that this will be a very enjoyable and educational event.

Pricing is $100 for the 3:30pm – 8:30pm event. We can stay longer for the Bike Show if we choose to do that as well.

If you are interested, please pm me your email address and I can send you the registration form.

This event is being hosted by Autobahn Country Club and you can find more information about them at http://www.autobahncountryclub.net


Note: This offer has been approved by Odysseys. I don't want to tread on NESBA, they just don't offer Cruiser Track Days. For those of you that know me, I go to EVERY NESBA event in the midwest and a few in the southeast. This event is NOT for sportbikes.

This is a great idea!

Cheyenne -- you should do this, given your track day experience and your newfound cruiserness.

I'd love to see Oddy do this on the school bus...

Interesting concept.

I would NOT wanna be a control rider for something like that though. Holy crap! I predict lots of scratched up shiny parts by the end of the day.

Are they going to be holding everyone to a minimum speed the whole time? Or running it like a track day?

Will anyone, ever in the history of the world get one of those 280 tires all scrubbed in?

...so many questions.

Ody says the Bus is for cruising... and the track bike is for ripping it up... CHUMP!! Anyhow, it should be a total blast. And Autobahn North is a very friendly track for this kind of riding. (but hey, at least he should show up for some beer at the end...)

Please forward this to your friends, the more the merrier!

Isn't this the same day as the STT weekend.

I won't be riding the Warrior to that. While the middle part of the track (turns 3-5) wouldn't be bad, T2 with a cruiser would absolutely be scary.

During the day, yes. You have to contact the OTHER track day organization.

Of course, that is assuming you can show anyone how it is done... ROFL!

YES, it is the same day as the OTHER organization, and they are running this Cruiser event for me.

Cruisers CAN take a turn slowly... T2 would be a good place to practice that.

your nuts if you think i am gonna take my 20k blingwing out there and push it to the max.

no thank you.

if i had a POS 750 nighthawk or something, thats a diiferant stroy.

to me whats the use, the way i see it its for cruiser guys that havent yet found there edge, i know how to tear up the track with pretty good lap times with the 9r.

its built for racing.

my goldwing isnt



fo me going out there and just doing what i normally do on the streets with it, grind pegs, spin up the rear on exit etc, would be a waste of money for me.

let alone i would leave so much room from the guy infront of me cause who knows if he is even decent at racing a sportbike.

no to much for me to risk.


funny, YES.


untill some bone head does something i might have to ride off the track with a 1000 pound bike.

there is no bike heavyier then a goldwing or 1 that makes as much torque or hpr then a goldwing, when i comes to cadillacs of CRUISERS.


ill save my spunk for the 9r, and cruise in style on the street.

have a good one, bitchs

I used to have cruisers and I set this up for a club that I am in called TopCats, primarily BlingWings, Harleys and BMW 1200LTs. It should be a hoot.
