Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I saw that stuff at Road America for the first time when we went up there. That stuff is mind boggling. Different style entirely. Guy who won was VERY street oriented dragging knees and leaning a lot, while doing all that dirt bike stuff (swinging the back end around, etc). Wish I had the camera for that stuff.

I could seriously get into that stuff. Looks like a lot of fun!

Mike riding a super-REtard???? Sounds about right to me :-)

Seriously though I'm super jealous!!! I've been kicking around the idea of getting a new dirtbike to play with.....Hmmmmmm CRF450 or YZ450?????? Or go Euro and get a Husky????

I'm curious as to how you like it on the track (compared to a "sportbike" like your R6...)???

That would've been Kevin Schwantz (former 500cc GP Champion)

Yeah, Jeremy said some famous racer was doing Supermotard races there. He was working corner 5 and didn't get a chance to check it out

It's totally different feeling. Espicially when your leg gets trapped between the bars and the ground. I went thru the heel on my race boots. But its a blast

I don't feel like I'm going as fast in the corners, but the slides are much easier to control. It brakes fairly well, but the front dive hard and the back comes around. I haven't learn to back it in yet, I had a few slides coming into corners and they were easier to manage than I though.
All in all it is alot of fun. Its a great bike for NHIS because you're not coming into the corner as fast and there are alot of transitions that the suspension can soak up. I was toying with the idea of selling the R6 and only ride the YZ but I think I'll keep it for the bigger tracks
