more than the hillcountry where you can get miles of road and total variety of turns and elevation changes?

The trees are a ways off and down a hill. Plenty of time to step on the rear brake and lay it down... They did not cut the grass until today otherwise it would not have been a problem. I think most of us found a way to ride around it and the tall grass wasn't much of a factor as one would think once you learned to just trust the track and put down a few laps! The track is far safer than the hill country!

well I will take ya'lls word for it. But those trees kind of trip me out. But if you could stop before you hit them I guess that is ok. just the edge of the track looks so choppy looking. Btw nice pics and good body positioning.

nice body position, Dean.

GB, you should give oakhill a try. What they say is right, if you can mastered this tight turns track all the turns at other track will be like a big sweeper.

The trees don't come in to play and yeah, Darryl has the grass mowed before Thursday so it's ready for Friday. He's a great guy.

Maybe he could grow some friggin corn there and help subsidize track improvements.

You could also get some sweet grass stains on the shoulder of your suit and not from falling down.

Telephoto lenses tend to optically compress photos. Making background objects look far closer than they actually are.

Looks like Scott, Ricky and the crew are getting ready to put on a show next weekend!

The Hill is the place to be. I wish that track is alot closer to me. It will teach you how to ride your bike. Especially if they have go kart races the weekend before. Its very slick out there
