9/26 is a Wednesday and NO, it is NOT with NESBA, it is with Blackhawk Farms (they run their own day one day a month).

NESBA's has no more Blackhawk dates this year.

NESBA mid-Season is wrapping up:

9/22-23 - Heartland Park
9/22-23 - Gingerman
10/13-14 - Putnam
10/20-21 - Grattan

as a reminder ....

you'll be required to zip tie your kick stand. bring the rear stand or otherwise figure out to keep the bike upright.

Do they make you take kickstands off for the BHF days?

Edit - ah crud. They either want you to remove it, safety wire or zip tie it up.

That's kind of a pain for those on street bikes and no stands.

Use a lightweight zip and just break in by the force of putting the kickstand down. Bring enough for all day. BTW-they never made me do anything with my kickstand at a BHF track day and I've attended them all this summer.

I was going to suggest the same thing, but I wasn't sure if it was a dumb idea or not. I'd say leave it on and see if they say anything about it.

Well, mine drags at about the same time as my left foot peg (I ride an FZ6) so I used this as an excuse to take it off. I just realized all this (it drags and the BHF requirement) so I have not bought a rear stand yet.

Any ideas on a good way to prop a bike up without a stand and without buying anything? Maybe I'll just use my tie down straps and my truck to hold it.............

That's the prefered method. If you hook it to a door, make sure you lock it...LOL!


Hey, Dave, I think you can just show up and buy into the day. It will cost an extra $20 unfortunately, but that's the cost of not having a magic ball for the weather forcast...LOL!

If you have solid rearsets you can use a jack stand on one side. Or lean it up against a building or car.
