if it's the same soap i'm thinking of he's actually asian, but he looks mexican. how many guys named soap in houston could there be that used to race pocket bikes. his brother peter used to own a shop here in town called PYR, then fell in love with a 998 and got out of the scene.

Thank you
So is it really 3-4 turns and miles of straight inbetween?
I am not expecting to find the Dragon in Texas, but to drive an hour away for 3-4 turns makes me think twice.
Are those long sweepers then? As the speeds would indicate so. Those can be nice too, I would not mind finding a road with multiple tight corners that one can scrape at say 60-70mph. Is that asking too much for this area?

Right now i am at aprox 110-120 mph (on the turns) due to a recent surgery and i am not 100% just yet.
Ummmmm TrackDay?
