I was at the track at 7:30, waited til 8:00 before I figured something was up. Hopefully, we can get this thing off the ground.

And might just have to take Jody's suggestion in the meantime.

Maybe today or tomorrow! We will see.
I am waiting for a true motard track with some jumps.
Dirt, dirt, dirt! Would be awsome to get to ride both at the same time. Asphalt/dirt.

Yes it was. He is a stuntman. It was posted on SMJ.

Guys we need dirt!! I know with dirt we will get more people coming in to ride from neighboring states. I have already spoken to Larry Wolfe who owns and runs a southern supermoto series ( http://flsupermoto.com/ ) he said he would definatley be interested in adding GSS to his series if we can get it together. I have fallen off the map with this project and its why I did not sign up to ride track day due to not having dirt sections at the track. I have ridden GSS multiple times (pavement only) and things get pretty boring out there after the first day. With dirt we can mix things up and make the track tighter adding in a few hard corners where you can really practice backing it in. Right now though it is a small track and great for motard there is no place to really back it in (it is a fast flowing street course) If we bring in dirt it will be the best thing the owner can do to actually start getting a decent amount of people to show up at a track day. Guys that are already involved in the sport will drive in to ride. Understandably lots of guys are on the fence around here on getting a motard and have not bought one. Well bring in dirt and get people out there and then hopefully thoses guys will get off the fence. It will also help bring local mxers that might be interested in trying supermoto. Like I said before we could get on Larry's race schedule for 2010 but we NEED DIRT.

if i can ride my dr350 without street tires on it, I will pay $100 bucks to come play. I'm assuming that I dont have to have a full on SM, and it looks like the more that sign up the better, right?
