Just an update for people on the east coast who can't have TrackDays right now hahaha. This trackday was quite a great one! Weather was perfect, a little cold in the morning but turned out to be mid 60 after about 2 sessions! People were great! Power Groove followed me around and gave me some good tips for some corners! Gawernator showed everyone what he had with his 250! And I even got to be passed by THE man in MotoAmerica Superstock 1000! For those who don't know that's Josh Herrin! I have some footage to go through and I will try and make a competent video and upload it but for now here's a picture of Josh Herrin and I!




Edit: had to edit this to tag a couple people! @PowerGroove @sbk1198 @PainfullySlo @jd41

Here's one video from the day with more to follow

Shiiiiit! Track days and mid-60s?? You lucky SOB's! It cracked down in the single digits here recently and in a couple of days it's supposed to be high of 14, low of 0 at night! Counting the days until the start of mine season...probably another 90 days out or so!

What was Herrin riding? Was he on the R1 he races in MA? Not taking anything away from you but I'm guessing after he passed you he was gone within a couple of turns and out of sight!

Though he was on his MA bike but he is on a regular white r1 but in the video I'm making he is actually on his friends r1 that looks like a replica of his MA bike. And yea after a couple turns he was gone. He said he is only going like 6/10 of his abilities because he just came out to have fun and enjoy the day with people!

Yeah, now imagine if he was pushing 100%! And then imagine all those fast guys in Moto 2 who lapped Herrin when he was in Moto 2 on multiple occasions! Whole new level of "insanely fast as fuck"!

Anyone know if it's possible to register and ride these tracks within one week: chuckwalla, thunderhill, Laguna Seca, willow?

My friends want to take a week off next spring and make this an once in a lifetime event.

You'd need to get lucky and. There be a spot open! All those tracks get full quick! Why not figure out what week you wanna take off and keep up on the trackday providers schedules to book for whatever track fits your schedule? I don't stick with one trackday organization I use whichever fits my schedule.

The issue here is that most track day providers run on weekends. Occasionally you can catch a day at Chuckwalla on a weekday. So the closest to this you could probably do is Chuck on a Friday and then hit up Willow on Saturday and/or Sunday.

Check back into the forum in the spring when more trackday providers have posted schedules and maybe we can get a calendar of events together to share with everyone.
