Hmmmm... Is this the same Jackson Speedway in MI where they race karts? If so, I might be VERY interested in this! (you're driving right Steve?)

Just read through this a little more carefully. Sure hope they don't have a "you break it you bought it" policy!

Patrick yes this is the same Jackson Speedway with the carts. I have a smaller car. I can fit two passengers with there gear. Who ever sits in the back seat will be a little cramped. You get limited amount of laps but there are a couple of different bikes out there that you can test ride. If it is like any other test ride on the track you can go as many times as you want ou just have to wait your turn. It would be a nice little get away on a Sunday plus we can bring a cooler and have a couple cold ones when we are done and grab something to eat. Just to remind you guys Michigan is one hour ahead of us.

How much would a set of street tires be for the CR? Hell, why go out there for a demo ride when I can pay $30 more and ride all day on mine?

Just to warn everybody, those 450 and 560 KTMs are NOT for the faint of heart. Those things will be wicked fast.

Skinny, that's all I know! I doubt I can fit the SV take offs on there.

One other detail to notice is that the day is only for 5 hours, from 11AM-4PM.

While I'd rather just catch a ride with Steve another option would be

I could bring the Urban assault vehicle, we could drag a trailer with some bikes and Ride Sunday, camp/drink Sunday night this is providing you guys can get Monday off. its a bit over 150 in fuel there and back.

5 hours of that kinda riding is enough to keep you sore for a few days

Man I would love to go to this, but have a birthday party to take my son to instead.

Ofugit, you definitely need to go hopefully riding the KTM will make you want one of those or the Aprilia bad enough to go back to work.

Next year this may have to make it onto the agenda especially since I'm considering a YZ250F next year, and that can pull dual duty between dirt and supermoto.

Don't you remember the last time you rode a 250??

Oh, that was a 2 stroke, but still classic nonetheless.

First of all, yes I do.

Second I'm never going to live that one down

Last that's exactly why I'm not listening to Mark's recommendation to the 450 four stroke.

I"ll have you know that I asked at every campground and racetrack that I went to if they needed a Network Engineer, but suprisingly nothing was available,
sigh... all I can do is keep trying.

hmmm 250 story..... what are we missing
