Tim, let me know when you need help. If I am in town, I am available to help. I am willing to help with anything needed to get this up and going.

I can help out putting this together manual labor I also have a truck its a ford Ranger so i couldn't tow a house but I could move some stuff.

I have been wanting to get a supermoto for a while now, and really want to try this out even though I would be super slow, and 100% garanteed to break something.

Interesting. I'd make it a traditional 60/40, or 70/30 paved/dirt course, with the asphalt and dirt sections contiguous respectively. Mixing the dirt and paved sections like you've shown will lead to one slick- and dangerous paved surface because you'll always be tracking dirt and dust on the paved track.

But that's just IMHO, of course.

I agree with that thought. Make one long dirt section, preferrable eliminating the back straight at GSS. Then keep all the asphalt section together.

I live in Clear Lake and would like to volunteer for any work parties needing help. I like GSS and it will be even better with dirt.

Various Equipment for various uses.
Dirt, Street, Track, Dual Sport, I like em all.








I think going ccw, leaving the pavement mid chicane on the back straight and re entering pavement near the end of the back straight so as to scrub dirt from the tires and then leaving pavement again near the end of the horseshoe just before it meets back up with the track and then re enter pavement near pitout so as to scrub dirt off the tires in the end of the straight. I guess it depends on just how the dirt will be as to how much will get tracked onto the pavement. Just my thoughts.
