Secret Race track

I posted this vid a while ago never really sheared it with anyone but I like to call this place my own secret race track its basically a development that never got developed except for the main road never any cars so you can rip it for hours

Your track needs a broom, spend an hour sweeping and start using more of the track.
Must admit, the 10 turns at Putnam get boring, but a couple of days riding that would get challenging.
Guess you could practice body positioning and learning how to slide the rear tire out a bit.

Nice find.

True haha I lived in FT Lauderdale for a while although at the time I didn't have a bike I still wondered where or if there were anyplace down there.

That looks fun but be careful man. A slide into a curb is going to ruin your day and maybe the rest of your life. There's a reason there aren't curbs on racetracks, and avoiding a head or back impact at speed is one of them....

careful man. Those undeveloped neighborhoods seem fun but usually REALLY dust/dirty from heavy dirt equipment. Plus curbs D:

As has repeatedly been pointed out be careful about kerbing; Multi-Grand Prix World Champion, Wayne Rainey had a low side accident at his favourite track at Misano italy where he slid across a super low kerb. It resulted in him being paralyzed in his legs.

Do yourself a huge favour an get a good push broom & sweep the corners free of debris.

On the other hand I'd be slightly jealous if it were not for the many nearby twisties I regularly enjoy.

Looks like a great 'playground' ! Enjoy ! ...not having other vehicles to encounter is certainly a massive plus !
