I am very much in favor of folks doing what they like to do. No judgement here. But, for me, the more I ride on the track the less I like the street. I'll be at Little Tally 11/09 with STT. Love some company...

I rode on Sunday only. Yea, it really was nuts. All the classes were packed. They ended up turning away the walk-in's without reservations...No more slots available. I was one of only two RC's that day (that I'm aware of). It was frustrating running into slower traffic on every lap. Pulling into the hot pit to let slower traffic pass didn't help. Doing that, which I tried a couple of times, only ended up putting me either behind, or in the middle of, another slow group of riders. Couldn't get out of traffic. Still, it was a fun day and as I said before the circuit was great to ride on. I'll be at Barber end of April with NESBA. Let me know if you can make it. I'll look out for you...

Ya the other RC was black it's a guy I know from Tampa he is pretty fast. I can't go to Barber but it is on my short list of must do's. Everyone says it's awesome. I'm going back to jennings on May 2nd and 3rd. My shop is renting the track let me know if you want to go. We have limited it to 50 riders.

Sorry for not getting back sooner. Thanks for the great offer, but that weekend we're back to Barber for the AMA Superbike races. The gang that I ride track with includes the local Honda dealer. Last Oct. he sprung for a private day at Jennings. The number ended up being about 20 folks including a last minute appearance by (no BS) Josh and Melissa Hayes who spent the day thoroughly embarrassing everyone. BTW: Melissa's NO slouch on her CBR 600--taking no prisoners!!! Unfortunately, yours truly had a last-minute, job-related hick up and didn't attend. This year, I'll be there. I will gladly let you know the particulars. We have the liberty (to a point) to invite friends/guests. So no issues if you're interested. Probably going to be in the Fall, when things cool off...

That's awesome, my business partner was there that day. Unless they were there some other time in addition to that time, He said Josh and Melissa were super cool people.

I live in San Diego and ride the track often. I'll be at Pharump in June, Fontana in July and BW in August. Let me know if you will be at any of those trackdays.

It's good to see riders with the trackday thinking in place! Going stupid on the road hasn't interested me for over 10 years, since I did my first trackday. Being on the other side of 'the big drink', I can't say that I know any of 'your' tracks, likewise I don't think many or any of you will know Oran Park, Winton, Eastern Creek(my current fave'), Wakefield Park... I am hanging to get to ride my Holy Grail that is Phillip Island. I've heard nothing but good/scary fast things about that track...
Have any of you ridden Laguna Seca? And is the Corkscrew as psycho as it looks on the TV? I'm guessing it's even worse in real life!
