If all goes as planned, I'll have the R back. I kinda want to take the Brutale out to see what she can do, but I'll owe Farmboy $5 if I do. Never shoulda made that bet

It should be a good time being this isn't a point and shoot horsepower track. We'll dice it up a bit.

You can use mine. Personally I believe its over kill for an open track day. The only thing its good for is if you tangled up with someone dicing it up and take a handlebar in the back.

I live on the northside or I can stay at 143rd & bell road if need be.

It's just that loading/unloading my bike into my pickup several times and making that early morning rush to the track is kinda a pain in the ass....not to mention that it cuts into my sleep....hmmm....anyone ever leave there bike etc. at the track for the night and stay elsewhere? I'd probably have to pay some sort of fee for that too.
