Riding Off Season

So, I spent the summer riding with you all down in Texas, had the most fun I've ever had in a single summer.

However, I'm back at school in Minnesota, finishing up my degree and expecting our first baby in about a month.

I'm here for advice: How does a guy pass the next year without being able to hit more than a couple local trackdays? This last year was tough enough, but another year without seeing the track regularly might just kill me (an event my wife and soon-to-be son would like to avoid I'm sure)

Keep in mind please: I'm a senior in my major, and do not have a private garage to wrench and tear down any bikes.

Need ideas please! Thank you all in advance, and I look forward to rejoining the best community of enthusiasts I have ever come across.

I spent two years in Michigan while my wife finished Grad school. The only thing that will help with your addiction, is a sled. If you have to, rent a snowmobile and hit the lakes after they freeze. Or, if you can swing it, they have some fun quad racing on ice too. If you are ambitious, get an XR100, put some studs in the tires and hit the ice.
