Assuming ROAD track

I'll try and make the RA day with NESBA in April. If not that the first BHF day I can. Need to get back on the track before race season if I want to keep you and Dave in sight.

As for dirt track..whenever a track opens and somebody posts a ride

American Supercamp in Delaware in April (the March date got cancelled). Then, Putnam Park with STT... and Road America with NESBA and CCS the following weekend.

Last year's RA race weekend sucked with rain and ice (depending on what part of the track you were at). The Friday was okay though, bit chilly but still manageable.

Man, i couldn't imagine riding around RA in those conditions. Big "up" to you! All those sealer strips get super slippery even with the least bit of rain. Thats crazy how RA is so big that some parts of the track are dry and maybe even sunny and you get to the back and there are little pools of water, raining, etc..
I did a weekend there last september with STT and it was in the 50's and raining!!! I was sliding all over the place!

Anyway, I think i'm doing the april BHF dates. I want get warmed up for the Autobahn. Hopefully i won't have to dodge any snowflakes Somebody has to find that groundhog and give him a couple warning shots

The licensing school was pretty decent weather wise. Didn't break any land speed records for sure. I think I got lapped by almost everybody. Then again, I was on the SV, most everybody else was on 600s or liter bikes. Didn't crash so I got the license. The next day was a complete mess..races got cut short, didn't happen, ice on the track. But hey, I can honestly say I got pole position at an RA race.

I'll be there on April 17th. I was going to do Barber, but my family can't go so I'm putting it off until later in the year.

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