Like I had mentioned, it is very controlled going up. Sit up front w me and we'll work on somethings.

If you're willing, I'll ride back w you at a good pace but you'd have to wait for everyone to finish at Yankees w me.


Once you see the roads you'll respectfully understand why there are so many problems on them. But you'll also appreciate the practice before your trackday.

I try and make it. 3090 is really not that bad just dont ride above your limits and top out on the long straight. (white tahoe will be waiting) I rode it last Sunday in rain and it was still fun.

Whether you were there or not I would not push it or ride above my skill level. Self preservation is my bioch.

Bout freakin time!


Everyone relax about 3090 - no need to give this road a worse rep than it already has. It's just a road. Heck - last night 1960 was WAY more dangerous! (and it's a straight line!)

Seriously though - new riders, just keep your head on straight and think way ahead. Control the situation in front of you - you really can't do anything about what is behind you. The guy (or gal) behind you should be doing the same thing.

As a seasoned rider (thatís code for OLD) I just try to remember that back roads are not controlled like I'm used to at the track. Road conditions are unpredictable. The yellow line is not a force field against oncoming traffic. And no matter how good or fast you are on the track, a little sand or a patch of leaves can ruin your whole day.
