Buell Track day

Only $99 it is run with PTT. This is probably a repost. And no you do not have to ride a buell to do the track day.

Yeah I'm not going to do that Wednesday one next week but the August one for the full course looks like fun...

I'm actually cutting back on track days this year so I can make more CCS races. Still gotta go to some of em though... unlike some people who can ride w/ Ed Key, I'm still dogshit slow and need a ton of practice

In that ad it says that they are running the full track. I doubt they have the resources to run it like 2 track days.

Yeah, that second one is the full track. I've got a few friends who are looking at doing the second one. I need to check back with them. If they are going, I'll probably go so I can finally visit with them again.

I am already signed up for both days. I believe you have to sign up at the dealerships, as each one is alloted a certain # of spots, or so I was told. See ya next week!

I was thinking of doing the Buell trackday on Wed, but since I won the Nesba raffle I'm gonna do that instead. And possibly do my Autobahn full track on July 3rd.

I read somewhere the Aug 28th full track day was already sold out. But you should check for yourself.

Good luck finding spots ... I grabbed the last 2 spots from the Huntley Buell dealer for the 24th... luckily 'cause the Libertyville dealer wanted both of us to come in to sign up. I do not blame them, just a little bit of a hassle since PTT is also promoting the events.

I believe they are all sold out for August, no? I checked and Libertyville had like 3 spots left a month ago when I signed up. Unless they were just pulling my leg. Myself and a few others went in that weekend and registered in early April.
