Interested in hearing your review Dave.

How is Racine Indoor for an intermediate rider?

its ok. They took some of really tough stuff like the triple on the backside & the woops r gone on the front. Its easier to ride but really dusty & the fumes are killer. No working washrooms either. I ended up leaving early because it was beautiful outside. Was going to ride in the snow but didn't. Probably tomorrow.

Lincoln trail was a lot of fun Saturday, a lil muddy at first it got better in the afternoon, if I had a mud tire on front i could ride that all day but the mx51 did ok, did a lot of laps on the "classic" track, fun jumps, nothing too big , the bomber(mark Barnett) track looked fun too but not open and the trails were too muddy to check out, long drive, its south of the 70

Im switching to ice mode. My left fingers are all cut up getting the ice tires on the rim. Gotta get a front tube since i punctured it while wrestling the tire on.

Ahhh, memories of the old Waterman Indoor Raceway - GOD I loved riding out there - Fumes and fumes and just a ton of fun - Miss that place

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Good to know.
Do they have box jumps(TableTops) like waterman used to ?

Yeah waterman was smokey sometimes.

Yep. Many of the jumps are tabletops now instead of nasty doubles & triples. U still have to worry about columns although they r padded.
