I may be there on the 23rd. It's my favorite track so far because of the run-offs. Just be careful with that back straight away. Study this video. It helped me a lot.

and..I'll see you on the 23rd. Group of us will be congregated in the leftmost garages in the second set facing the gate. You're welcome to join us, typically plenty of food too. Some of them crack open a post trackday celebratory beer before hanging out and eventually heading out.

Level 1 and Rider Development School is sold out for the 22nd.

The 23rd is a make up date from a rain out in October of last year, so I'm not surprised that there isn't space available.

Can't wait....freekin hell. Put new rubber on the other day, and mounted on the bike yesterday. Wiped her down a bit, will need to clean and lube the chain day of as I like to it when the chain is a little warm and my bike isn't street legal. (Cop lives down the street.)

First time w/Dunlop Q2s, hope they're as good as everybody says they are.

I just put Q2's on the other day as well. I'm liking them so far.

What were you running before?

I was running 2CTs, and 016s before that. Not such a big fan of Bridgestones, even though I've given them plenty of chances having run 010, 014 and the 016s.

I have a set of 003 RSs waiting to be spooned on my WR250x, but that is another story for another day. Hopefully those work out okay.

Big fan of Michelin tires so far though having run PP and these 2CTs. Really great feedback.

I was running Pirelli Diablo Rossos. Tread was still decent on them, but my Q2's feel like they hold better in corners so far. I've put on about 500 miles on them.

I'll have to look you up. I'm actually looking for somebody to tow me through 12. I almost always fixate on the frickin exit, really frustrating.

I like to gravitate towards the set of garages circled in the pic. Almost guaranteed I'll be in that area on Saturday as I'm staying over Friday night.

Bit of a crashfest today in Level 2, but still a good time. I'm wiped and looking forward to hitting the air mattress in my tent.

It is kinda spooky quiet here...

I had a blast. Kind of wishing I stayed for today.

Just signed up for 5/21.
